Jimmy how can i message you in private regarding proprietary info
I visited your ebay store products plus, I would like to ask you,
#1- Which items do you put on auction and which items for buy it now?
#2- If an item don't sell on auction do you put it up a second time for auction ? or you would put it for Buy it now?
Hi, I dont have too many auctions running on ebay these days as Amazon is just much better, but I try to keep around 10 running just to keep my ratings up on ebay and its good advertising for my website.
I run most everything in Auctions. When I have an item I want to sell at a fixed price I generally list it on Amazon. Ebay sucks as far as fixed price listings. If you list it on amazon for a good price you can sell that item in a matter of days. An item can sit in your ebay store for months and only get a few views.
I generally only list items on ebay if I cant list them on amazon and I normally do not have to re list anything as all of my auctions start at 1.00
Now I do not recommend this tactic fore everyone. I have over a quarter million dollars worth of products in my warehouse to fall back on if I have a bad sale. So loosing money on a product is just a part of general business for me. If I were you I would research the products you are selling. And their average selling prices on ebay before choosing how to start the auction. If you paid little and your item generally sells high then a $1.00 bid would be great.
If your item sells lower on ebay then you paid for it I would say list it as a fixed price item or sell it locally or somewhere else. Ebay is not the only way to make money on products. I have this problem with some of my pack buyers they only try to sell their items on ebay while our other buyers are using multiple ways to sell their items and making money while the buyer sticking with ebay has a higher risk of loosing money. Too many people think its the only way but its only 1 avenue out of over a dozen great ways to sell products.
