My Experience Selling in Ebay

Have you tried Selling on eBay? I have, and it was not a successful try. This beaded Teddy bear is actually made by my colleague. She asked me to sell on eBay since she was not familiar with internet thing. I started the bid at USD 9.99,- I knew that the price was too expensive, but it was not for me to decide the price. Furthermore, if it did not sell at that price, I didn’t think it was worth it to sell. I don’t think eBay is the right place to sell anyway. People want to buy cheap thing there and selling hand made items are definitely not a good idea.

I also tried to sell knitting pattern once. It was not successful also, although when I tried to sell it somewhere else, it sold within a day.

The thing that I don’t like about eBay is that they have very expensive listing fee. If I manage to sell it that is fine, but if not then I have to make a lost.

Recently I heard about iSold It on eBay, where you can just drop the thing that you want to sell, and they will do the work from taking the photo, listing and shipping it for you.

You have want to look into http://www.etsy.com/ if you haven't already, it's a much more targeted place for selling that sort of item
