Welcome back to the what sells on eBay series!

I've dropped the ball majorly on my eBay store lately. I should have listed everything I have to list in October, but I ended up listing only 29 things.

I did at least sell 1 more item than I did last month, and I'm going to try to get all of my unlisted inventory listed in November. Better late than never, and there's still a good amount of time for the holiday season.

I wouldn't think that my sales would be affected very much by the holidays since I mainly sell random used items I get at yard sales and thrift stores. But, I did notice higher sales during this time last year and it seems like my sales have been better so far in November.

I didn't have any returns in October, so that's nice! I had several people buy items and never pay, but that happens every month.

I was able to get back to 100% positive feedback after a year of being in the 99% range. I'm not sure how much of an impact being at 100% positive has on sales, but it certainly can't hurt. I'm just curious how long I'll be able to stay at 100%.

I did make a video for this month's report and it's now live! I've got a lot of work to do when it comes to my camera skills and voice, but that will come with time. I wasn't able to share everything I sold in the video because it only gave me 15 minutes to work with.

Numbers for the month:

October 2019 1

How I do my eBay numbers

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!
