I list most of my items now for either .01 or .99. It only cost .55 to list an item with a gallery picture.
I try to mix up my listing types, auctions, fixed price, store items...it is true that store items are cheaper to list...but you pay for the store...so maybe it balances out.
For a new person, Im one also...I learning that just getting the traffic to your store is the first part of the battle...do that and you might be good at this. Try using good phrases, use brand names in the titles...the more people see it, the better it does...thats my understanding.
for around $9 a year and redirect to your store ebay for more traffic. This way you can put links to your store in your listing, just like Berk LLC does here at salehoo and I'm sure it works great for them also.
I am new to online selling and I have afew questions regarding the posts in this form.
First when you sell something through ebay for $0.01 or .99
what happens if it acutally sells for that price? Especally if you know you can get $50.00 or more for it. Do you put in a reserve price? And does that cost more?
Second haus1028 posted that she tried to use the .99 price but it didn't work and she had to have a friend bid on it for her to dirve the price up. That's shill bidding and you can get into alot of trouble with ebay. So be carrful.
