Selling On Ebay

I have had a few issues lately with Facebook and selling items.  Some have not been listed as for some reason they breach advertising standards.  I can’t say what as then this post wouldn’t get published. It boggles my mind!  I find the new format confusing and not user friendly at all.  I am usually great with technology, but this is beyond me at the moment.  Also, since FB has changed formats and are now charging people, I have had to make the decision to take everything out of my shop, which I shall be doing over the next few days. I shall have to find another way around listing things for sale.

In the meantime, eBay has an offer for sellers and so I spent most of the day adding items onto there.  It takes a long time to do this.  This was made a little bit easier as I was able to copy and paste from Etsy.  It might take a couple of days to list everything.  It is like going around a roundabout trying to sell things one makes, especially since craft events have been cancelled this year.  I have been so busy and prolific since lockdown I am running out of space to store everything!  I have reduced the prices considerably, but I can live with that as my costs will still be covered if not all of my time.  I am currently only selling to the UK with free shipping.  This way I know you should get it by Christmas!

If you would like to view my eBay shop you can find it here.  Please feel free to share.  Thank you for taking the time to read this. 🙂

  1. We hope ebay works out for you but when we tried it a few years ago it didn’t work for us.
    We wondered if perhaps most people that visit ebay go for a secondhand bargain rather than new, original stuff?

    1. Thank you. One can only try. When eBay first started, I was able to make a lot of money selling my books and CDs. Now that companies have great deals with shipping companies, the average person cannot make a decent profit with free shipping, so I no longer sell my books there unless they are a certain price. You need to compare. There are people that sell new things, so I will give it a go. I have a month with no seller’s fees.
