      Same. I use several sale sites and nobody is fukkin buying anything, across new and used goods in various categories targeting women, a demographic that recently spent money like water. Feels bad.

      2-3 months ago I was hitting new records. Did around $14,000 in sales a month. Now it is about to fall below $8,000. Not half yet, but still. It happened so quick bros. Where are all our consoomers at?

          How much of gas and food prices are just due to the retarded sanctions against Russia, and how much is due to obscene money printing?

            It's hard to say, because gas push prices up. And Russia do sell a good amount of petrol to "western nations". Now that the supply is running low, the Arabs started to charge more.

I have one girl who is a "UX Designer" (lmfao) who says she wants to homestead, but not the traditional way - she wants 20 simp husbands to be her cult slaves while she just sits around being the queen bee.

          i don't sell stuff anymore but with the recession looming thought it'd be a good time to get stuff stuff, especially industrial/medical etc stuff.

        Also, with me I take care of any damaged items I receive, so the customers are only getting items that are in great condition and passed my quality control. That is worth money to people.

    Twenty year ebay user reporting. Use to by and sell on there quite a bit. Just happened to pull out of sales right when ebay fees went from expensive to outright rape, the pay system got fucked and the new ui was forced on those of us who refused to switch from the old ui. Then the whole tax fiasco kicked in. I'll never go back to selling on their again. I don't buy nearly as much as I used to either. I hate the ebay company so much its unreal. Not only do they rape sellers they have made buying on the site unbearable. The search system is retarded, the ads are unbearable and overall experience is just awful. I only buy from ebay when I absolutely have to because the item is only available there. I hate having to sift through shit and force the search to give me the results I want. There is a lot of tricky shit ebay tries to pull hiding items sellers want and showing them overpriced junk no one wants. My advice to anyone who still sells there is to gtfo and find somewhere else to sell. That's where myself and other buyers are, anywhere but ebay. I don't have any recs as to where else to sell though. I don't mess with selling online any more. All the sites are shitty, most buyers are shitty and shipping kills the profits too much these days.

      This is how I know you are lying. Fees haven't changed. They are still about 12.9% with a store, as they have always been. The new payment system is better as well, as you get your payment processing fees back with returns. Nice FUD though.

        Kys you retarded shill. Its not just the percentages. Its how sellers are treated. Its about fees increasing because shipping is increasing and ebay collects a percentage on top of it. Its about search algorithms burying sellers. Its about not getting paid for days when the item needs to ship right away. Its about hiding items when buyers are looking for low pricing. Its about forcing returns on non returnable items. Its about bad customer service. Its about trearing sellers like low wage employees that work for ebay. Its about a bunch of things that add up to ebay being shit.

        Also the tax issue is no issue at all. I am profiting over 6 figgies. Not like I could avoid paying taxes before.

        Your stance is irrelevant in regards to low volume low dollar selllers whose sales equate to having a garage sale a couple times a year.

        Both of you can suck my cock. I will never sell on ebay again. I am not gonna buy on ebay unless I have to. I will buy anywhere but ebay every chance I get. I will alsobe sure to infom who asks just how horrible the site. Fuck you and whatever shitty trash you sell on that garden gnome website.

          Ebay got a lot better in the last 2 years. I honestly don't know what you're talking about.
          They no longer automatically side with the buyer on every issue, they keep better and more accessible records, breaking away from PayPal made everything go through one party (eBay) which makes things simpler.
          The fees have pretty much stayed the same.
          Ebay tells you ways to improve yourself in search results
          >offer free shipping
          Just add the shipping cost to your price and offer free shipping, and you just improved your results in their algorithm.
          >offer 1 day shipping
          Just ship everything the next day, and you just improved your place in the algorithm.

          if that isn't enough then pay the 1% minimum to promote your listing.

          Weather problems in my local area made it too cold to germ seeds in the ground, then suddenly it's hotter than good germination soil temperatures. Everything that did sprout at all is stunted. If I did greenhouse shit it wouldn't be a problem but I'm not in deep enough to have a greenhouse yet.
          If the economy tanks, hope for societal unrest so that nothing ships to stores, then just sell locally as the guy who has melons and kale/whatever. Team up with a local granny and sell jams and pickles using cottage food laws.

            I focus mostly on foods with little caloric density (mushrooms, microgreens, herbs etc), as these tend to be the most profitable for a small scale grower.

        I am shipping in a pallet of books to Amazon FBA about once every 2 weeks. I have 3 pallets in there so far. Selling about $400 a day in sales. I have around 25 more pallets to go. Should be getting near $4000 a day in sales once I get 10 pallets in. These are high profit books though. Average profit is $25 each, with many selling for $100-200.

                You can sell more than .1% a day easily. Get ScanLister software. And then get repricer software. Still, a lot of work. But I've sold around 30% of the books I've shipped in so far. Around 15% a month.

                To explain more, everyone has repricers so all you do is drive your own prices into the dirt. Bad move, when buyers only come seasonally. I have used them and sales did not increase, prices just went down. Price is a very imaginary concept with hard to find books, don't stress about it.

                This.
                I run a bookstore, don't ship because I have a better pick and pack operation going that is my real business.
                I shop A LOT for books though used on Abe and otherwise, marketing, photo and write up are worth 30% extra to me. And that's how it is for a lot of people.
                Price to make a good sale. Not to just be under someone else for the sake of it.

                I learned that in my real business. People are VERY price flexible if you sell them right.

          How do you drive traffing into people clicking on your books? are they your own books? do you write them, or hire people to write, or they are a random selection of books?

            He is selling used books, people look for certain types of books at different times. There is good software you can use to see what sells for what price and when it sold. Helps a lot.

            Guy I know bought out a bibliophiles hoard. He had 20 storage units full of them, paying $5k a month and he defaulted. We got them. I scan them all to see which ones have a low enough Amazon's sales rank to bother listing. If they don't have a low sales rank, I don't mess with them.

              Good method, I would factor price and the book itself strongly though don't worry just about sales rank it is super deceptive and doesn't paint the whole picture in any way. You need a longer timescale than a sales rank.

                Not so bad of a collection. I would show you mine but I've lost those pictures. Really great stuff, some books 500 years old. I miss it, I do.

                I would suggest that if you want to dump these quickly, sell them as mystery lots with some good books mixed in with mostly bad. Sell the boxes for like $50 each or something.

      Amazon FBA is way worse than eBay. Things sell faster, yes. But their return policy is n-wordish. They accept returns for any reason. And then the item often becomes unsellable and the 3rd party merchant (you) have the eat the loss. All because some n-word customer bought something he didn't really want.

    Fuck Amazon they take 40-60% of the pie, and they lose inventory far too often.
    Zero support, Amazon refers it's sellers to a forum full of other confused seller, with a few Amazon shills in the mix to troll the confused vendors into submission.
    If you are able to get ahold of support, good luck, they're in India probably working for Amazon support while also working at a scam call center.

    Amazon lost $5k+ in merch in just 2wks time, and getting support to reconcile the lost goods.

    People who don't sell on FBA think "Shipping is FREE w/Prime" but no, shipping is included and calculated into the fee to the seller, so the shipping fees are already included in the list price.

    Oh did I mention when you use Amazon you are literally giving your money to a garden gnome?

But to be honest Im worried we're going to see a complete collapse of things soon that make the great depression look like a not so bad recession.
