ReSeller's Listing Challenge: April Results/May Goals

Had to look back and find my April post stating my ReSeller's Listing Challenge goals for the month due to memory lapse. As it turns out, I only made one goal, so as not to be too hard on myself, as I try to amp it up a bit in the reselling world. My goal was to list 50 new items on Ebay. I listed 31. Sold 18. I think for May, I will try a daily goal instead, so maybe I'll remember I have a goal, haha. My new listing goal is to list 5 new items per day on Ebay.

Yet something else I learned from reading Apron Thrift Girl blog posts is that the Buy-It-Now/Best Offer format is kinda cool. And effective. I started listing with higher prices as buy-it-now and then added the best offer. I sold 8 items using this format this month and because I'm usually happy with a $10 sale, the higher sales have been nice (and motivating so far as purchasing more vintage items instead of clothes).

I've been doing Ebay for quite a number of years and just recently learned if you list an item in the Collectibles category, all of your pictures are free (versus the usual first picture free, each additional picture .15). Not sure about other categories as I usually sell clothes but since I've started buying/listing more vintage items, I'm posting lots in Collectibles and taking advantage of mulitple pictures of each item. Yay for free pictures! Yay for learning something new!

Thanks for the tip about the free photos in the "collectibles" category - I will have to see if it's the same on ebay uk.
