I hate it when eBay does this – they announce their discounts for listing items a few hours before the day they take place. Of course they do it for an obvious reason – if they announced it any farther ahead, people would just wait until that day to list all their items. So I received an email a few hours ago saying all listings will be $0.10 today. For those that list fairly expensive items, this can be quite a bit of savings and a good time to list items that you want to test without risking much money. So the plans I had for today have been thrown out the window and I will be concentrating on getting auctions up.
I would prefer to pass on this, but since December has been a terrible month for us in advertising revenue I have to make it up somewhere. I’ll have to list items no matter what, so I might as well list the now when the price is right. The goal will be to put up about $2000 worth of items today and hope that half of them sell. That will allow me to concentrate on the this business for the rest of the month without having to worry about having enough money come in.
So, I’m off to list auctions. Wish me luck
