Welcome back to the what sells on eBay series.

I had another solid month in March and although I didn’t make as much as I did in February, my store actually did better. I made so much in February due to an item that I sold for $400 and profited $375. If I hadn’t had that one sale, I would’ve only made about $500.

Some people have criticized my eBay store saying that I don’t make much profit on my items. While I might only make a couple of dollars on some of the items I sell, I almost always double my money. I’m always trying to boost profits, but what other business do you know of that doubles their money on almost every item they sell?

March was a great month regarding issues. I didn’t really have any! I had one person want to return an item but they never shipped it back so I was able to close the return case. I’ve also sold several glass/fragile items and none of them have broken in shipping. I must be getting better at packing.

I listed 79 in March. I need to step it up this month and try to get 100 items listed. I’m starting to amass a large pile of stuff that needs to get listed.

This post covers how I list items for the best profit.

Vintage TNT CB radio amp. Total profit: $468.76

Numbers for the month

  • Amount of Items sold: 42
  • Gross sales: $850.23
  • Cost of goods sold: $73.71
  • Profits after ALL expenses: $636.51
  • Average profit per item: $16.34
  • Ended the month with a total of 417 listings

To track my numbers, I use a service called Easy Auctions Tracker. Easy Auctions Tracker connects directly to your eBay account and pulls all the fees associated with each sale to show you the true net profit. All you have to do is keep track of what you paid for each item! The best part about it is that it’s only $49.99 for an entire year subscription! This is much cheaper than any other bookkeeping software I’ve seen but more accurate than other options. Sign up through this link.
