Well unlike you good sir, I do not use eBay.
In fact they aren't my selling point at all.
I own my own store which is a full running business.
Basically the only thing that I do, is run items from my store through a local eBay listing or Craiglist etc, I hardly ever pay a dime.
No more than $5, $3 etc. I never pay this ridiculous amount of money of $1500 to sell out all my store items.
And do you know why? I've learned to be self-reliant, I generate traffic for myself by the thousands. I can't tell how to everyone, but I do it all the time and I proudly do it on autopilot. And I basically go to sleep, take orders, do it again and move on to the next one.
Only beware always of scammers, if they're from another country be positive that Paypal/Googlepay has verified their address. I never ship anywhere overseas, EVER, at any time unless its double checked.
Sold to Hungary, the U.K., to Russia, to Canada, Netherlands, and China so I know my way around the channel. And its rough but I just nod and deal with it, the traffic always comes. That's easy.
