Another Weekend to Remember on eBay: I Received $773.28!!

 

Hey resellers, thanks for stopping by today and I hope you’re having an amazing day so far!

As I mentioned about a week ago, I’ll be leaving for a trip soon.  As excited as I am, you would think that I’d be all packed and ready to go..but no.

Sadly, I haven’t prepared AT ALL and I barely have time to think about what clothes I’m going to bring and what items I’m going to need.  Apparently, the temperature’s going to be in the 50-60’s – which is “freezing” for a guy like me – so I better not forget to bring a jacket or something.

To be honest, I haven’t had much time to think about those things much.

What I am thinking about is how I can maximize my eBay sales while I’m still here and recently that’s been through the use of what I call The Sunday Blitz technique. (I know it’s not football season anymore but I still think it has a nice ring to it lol)

The Sunday Blitz technique basically involves listing your items using the auction-format and having them end strategically on – yup, you guessed it – Sunday.  At night preferably but anytime during Sunday is fine.

My results when using this technique has been amazing and it’s produced some of my best results on eBay including my best single day sales record and my best 2-day sales record.

I used this strategy this past weekend and, once again, it did not disappoint.  I received a total of $773.28  worth of payments on Sunday and Monday!!

Here are pic of some of my sales.  I say “some” because this pictures was taken in the morning and more payments arrived consistently throughout the day:

(Scroll all the way down to check out some of my favorite’s from this weekend)

The Last Sunday Blitz

The only sad thing about this latest Blitz is that it’s going to be my last one  until I return from trip.  Buyers are still allowed 2 days to pay for an item and an additional 4 days after a unpaid item case is opened.  That’s a lot of days and, with my trip so close, I can’t run the risk of payments arriving while I’m away.  That’s a quick way to get a negative feedback.

*Break*

I seriously just sold this item and heard that “Ka-ching” sound as I was writing that last paragraph so I thought I’d share it:

Item Cost:  $2.99

BIN:  $39.99

*Break Over*

Ok, now where was I?

Oh yeah, so that’s going to be the last Sunday Blitz before the trip.  But there’s also a chance that it might have been my last one ever thanks to the eBay sellers update set to take place on May 1st.

Basically, they’ve made changes to their monthly seller promo and the auction-format will no longer be included as part of the free listings that we receive every month.  Bummer.

Instead, every auction-format I use will cost me $0.15 BUT they’ll refund the insertion fee if the item sells successfully.  This new policy wouldn’t be much of an issue if every single auction sells during its first listing.  But it doesn’t always work out that way, does it?

No.  Sometimes it takes 2-3 listings before an item sells and, yeah, that only adds up to $0.30 – $0.45 per item but over the course of a month those numbers add up quickly.  And I don’t know about you but I’m all about reducing fees and charges whenever possible.

Moving Forward

The way I see it, I have three (3) options in regards to these new developments:

1) Do nothing.  Basically ignore these policy changes and continue to run the Sunday Blitz technique regardless of the potential increase in fees.

2)  Only use BIN auctions.  This would eliminate the insertion fees altogether but, if I can be honest, it’s boring for me.  I love auctions, I love bidding wars, and I love having a nice sum of payments arriving all at the same item.  This option would basically eliminate all of that and I’m not sure if I want to give that up.

3)  Use a hybrid method.  With this option, I would use the auction-format exclusively for those items that I’m confident will receive a bid (Air Jordan’s, Nike’s, Ralph Lauren, etc) and use the BIN format for the remaining items.

I’m not sure which option will work best with the new changes but experimenting and finding out is all part of the fun with eBay.  I’m probably going to try each option for an extended period of time and gauge the results.  If I was to put money down though, I would say that option #1 would probably still work the best, despite the fees.

But we’ll see I guess.

I went to Savers last night and I found a bunch of great items to list.  So I’m going to be working on that for a little bit before heading out and visiting one of my favorite Goodwill’s.

Have a great day and I hope you find some amazing stuff during your next thrift store visit!

“Garage Sale” Reseller?!

 

What’s up resellers – I hope you’re doing well and having an amazing Friday!

If you read the title and find yourself a little confused, don’t be.

I haven’t changed my core profit model – my primary source for items to resell are still thrift stores and I don’t see that changing any time soon.  But have I found another great venue for items to sell on eBay?  That’s a definite possibility.

It’s no secret that there’s a ton of great stuff to be found at garage sales.  I know there a lot of resellers who actually prefer them over thrift stores and they’re doing really well with this model.

Despite the success that other sellers are having, I’ve never been drawn to garage sales personally because of all the driving involved and the fact that each spot I’ve visited (so far anyway) doesn’t seem to have a great selection.  Which leads to even more driving and coming from a person who deals with Honolulu traffic (considered the WORST in America according to Forbes), that’s not something I really want to deal with.

Serendipitous Run

As luck would have it, I was out running on a Saturday morning and I noticed one of those garage sale signs and it read “Multi-Family Sale on 3/28/15; 8am-2p”.

Immediately I thought “Heck, why not?!”

What do I have to lose anyway?  I was already finished with my run, the garage sale was down the street from house so I didn’t have to drive anywere, and it was a multi-family sale so the selection should be decent.

I have to admit, I felt a little out of  my element but it was still a lot of fun and I can see why so many sellers enjoy going to them.  Most of the clothes, toys, and board games weren’t worth much but I did find this nice pair of Nike’s that a family was selling for $5.00:

Shox SL

I immediately listed them on eBay and they recently sold for $40.99!!

Not bad for a first experience and I’m definitely curious to see what else I can find at these garage sales.  I’m not ready to dedicate a whole morning or afternoon visiting homes but if I spot any during my Saturday or Sunday morning run then I’ll definitely stop by.

How about you:  How often do you visit garage sales?  How many stops per day do you usually make?  Any cool items you found or success stories that you wanna share?

I’m also gonna try bargaining next time, any tips for a newbie?

Have an amazing weekend and I’ll talk to you soon!

Finds of the Week (April 6, 2015) and an Off the Grid Preview

Off the Grid, Part III:  Coming Soon

Let me tell you something that hopefully should be pretty obvious by now, here it goes:  I LOVE what I do!

Yes, I love making a living online.  Reselling thrift store items on eBay is major part of my online business but I have other income streams also from Amazon, affiliate marketing, and other niche websites that I operate.

I love everything about it –  I love the grind of getting up at 4-5am during the weekdays (6am during the weekend, I let myself “sleep in”), I love learning new things everyday, and I love the fact that I’m working but it doesn’t feel like I’m “working”.  Know what I mean?

I shared the following story on Twitter:

I was at Savers the other day and, as usual, I had a lot of clothes, shoes, and board games to checkout.  As I was loading the items on the table for the employee to scan she just looked at me and said, “You always find the best brands.   I just can’t believe you have the patience to look through all those items.”

Two things came to mind when she said that: 1) they’re watching me combing through the aisle which is kinda creepy lol and 2) who said I needed “patience” to look through all those items?

Are you kidding me?!  Ask any reseller and they’ll tell  you that thrifting and finding those valuable treasures is one of the best parts about this gig.  Am I right?

When I’m at the thrift stores I don’t look at the clock and think “Oh man, I wish they would just stop putting out all these Air Jordan’s for me to find.  I wish people would quit donating them so I can stop working…”

You will NEVER catch me say that.  In fact, if they had 24 hour thrift stores in my area (do they have those anywhere??) or if I didn’t need that little thing called sleep, I would probably work even longer than I do now.  And I would be more than okay with that.

So all that to say that I love to work…but I do need a break every now and then to re-charge the batteries and that usually takes the form of a trip or vacation.

In the beginning that would mean a quick turnaround to California or Las Vegas (favorites among the locals here).  But as my goals (and the energy needed to accomplish them) have become more ambitious, so have the trips that I’ve taken to recover from them!

So that’s what these Off the Grid vacations are all about:  no business, no eBay, no blog post, no thrifting (I’m still debating whether or not to change this rule, I’ve come across some interesting thrift stores on my travels).  This is just a time to unwind so that I can push even harder when I get home and finish the year off strong!

Here’s a quick snippet of my previous vacations:

In Off the Grid, Part I, my fiance and I went to Europe and visited London, Rome, and Paris.  So awesome and I even spotted a few thrift shops along the way, although I didn’t visit any of them because of my strict “no thrifting” rule at the time.

Here’s a pic of this huge festival that was happening right below our hotel.  This was London’s Notting Hill Carnival ( their version of Labor Day Weekend) and there were literally millions of people packed into one street.  So crazy!

http://www.thriftstorereseller.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/09/20130909-060414.jpg

In Off the Grid, Part II, we followed that up by going to Thailand.  Really humid but I loved every minutes of that trip – great food and even better people!

This was the view of Bangkok from our hotel room:

http://www.thriftstorereseller.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/05/Bangkok.jpg

Off the Grid, Part III will be coming in a few weeks and to say I’m excited is  HUGE understatement.  I’m not going to mention the location but I will say that this is a place I’ve been wanting to visit since high school (although I never thought I’d actually get the chance one day.)

I’m super excited for this upcoming trip but you know what?…

I’m Not There YET

I’ll be leaving in a few weeks so it’s tantalizingly close.  In the meantime, there’s still A LOT of things I want to accomplish and #1 on that list is to have a few more Monday’s like this under my belt:

Embedded image permalink

It was another great weekend and I was relieved to see that the events of Easter Sunday didn’t interfere with the shopping on eBay.  It was a little slow during the day but the activity definitely picked up later that night.

I’m on my way to a bunch of thrift stores today so I’m optimistic and hopeful that I’ll be coming back home with a few bags full of great stuff to list (fingers-crossed)!

Good luck to you wherever you are today and please enjoy my latest finds of the week.

Thanks and I’ll talk to you soon!

How to Resell Thrift Store PG Lite by Alegria on eBay [Video]

 

I receive a lot of attention for the thrift store Nike’s and Air Jordan’s that I resell on eBay but it’s actually been women’s shoes – yes, women’s shoes! – that have been largely responsible for the jump in sales that I’ve experienced in recent years.

The selection in women’s footwear is amazing and, even though I’ve uncovered dozens of great brands since I started, I feel like I’ve only began to scratch the surface in this great niche!

Related:  How to Resell Thrift Store Safari/Photography/Fishing Cargo Vest on eBay [Video]

Seriously, if you aren’t selling women’s shoes yet you NEED to get started.  IMMEDIATELY!

In this video, I’m going to share with one of my favorite brands that will help you do just that:  PG Lite by Alegria.

This is an awesome brand and I’ve made some great sales with their items even since I found out just how valuable they were.

In this video, you’re going to discover how to spot these items, which ones to purchase and which ones to leave behind, and, of course, how much you can expect to sell them for on eBay.

I hope you enjoy the video and I’ll talk to you soon!

Thrift Store Finds of the Week (3/30/2015)

 

Can We Fast-Forward to the Weekend?

Seriously, can we?

Sierra NevadaI’m not asking so that we can all relax and unwind; on the contrary, I find myself really pushing and working hard over the weekend whenever I get a chance.  Although I did find time on Saturday to discover this great beer.

No, the reason I’m asking is because (and this has become a welcome trend) I had another great weekend on eBay!

These sales all happened on Sunday and Monday, and the stack would’ve been even higher if I hadn’t shipped some items on Saturday also.

Seriously, using the auction-format and having them end on Saturday and Sunday (whenever possible) has ignited my sales and it has been the best decision I’ve made in the early part of this year.  I think I can confidently say that now.

USPS Tetris

Of course, only now that I’ve finally hit a groove and sales have been climbing does eBay decide to throw me a “curve ball” with the upcoming Spring Seller update.

Related:  Read the Complete Spring Seller Update

Overall, I’m actually okay with the majority of changes that are going to take place on May 1 but there’s one teeny, tiny change they’re planning that could have a HUGE impact on my current auction-format strategy and how I run my eBay stores in the future.

I’m going to hold off on discussing those changes for a future post – I’m still on a high from all the sales this weekend and I’d rather not ruin that with talk of “eBay policies” lol

But I will say that it is a good idea to read the update because, while not everything may affect you, there might be a few changes that could have an impact on how you sell on eBay.  There’s still a month before the update take place so there’s no rush, but please be sure to schedule some time to read them.

In the meantime, I hope you enjoy some of my sales from this weekend.  I’ve sprinkled a few Buy-It-Now (BIN) auctions around my stores but by and large the majority of my sales have come from auction formats .  I’ve even had some items rise $30-$40 in the last few seconds, which is always fun and exciting to watch.

I hope you’re having a great start to your week and I’ll talk to you soon!

What Would You Have Done with These Sales?

 

I had two interesting auctions that ended yesterday and I would love to get your opinion on both of them.  Both auctions ended successfully; that is, with payments being made and the funds actually showing up in my Paypal account, unlike that incident that happened a few days ago.  So that wasn’t the problem.

The interesting events actually occurred prior to the payments being sent and I would love to get your take on it.

Case #1:  “You Snooze, You Lose”

Eclipse

I listed this pair of Nike’s using the auction-format and I started the bid at $24.99.   I instantly picked up four serious watchers and I was immediately peppered with unsolicited Buy-It-Now (BIN) offers.

One buyer in particular was extremely aggressive and eventually I agreed to BIN price of $50 plus shipping.  She informed me that she could pay right away so I immediately ended the auction and I created a new one with the BIN price that we agreed upon.

I’m not sure if we had the same understanding of the word “immediately” but she took her time paying for the item and another buyer (one of the four who was watching the item) swooped in and purchased the item before she could.

As soon as the auction ended the buyer who I made the original $50 deal with contacted me asking me where the item went and STILL informing me that she’s ready to pay “immediately”.

I had to let her know that someone else already purchased the item and the funds have already been sent.  I’m sorry but there’s really nothing I could do.  Of course, she was upset but at the same time she told me that she could pay immediately and she didn’t.

I have to admit that a part of me feels bad about this one.  Was there a different way that I could’ve handled this?  Do you complete transactions outside of eBay?  As in, have the buyer send the payment directly to your Paypal account without setting up an auction?

What would you have done?

Case #2:  “Can I Still Win This Auction?”

Guess

I sold this jacket yesterday for $24.99.  It wasn’t a “bad” sale but with eight watchers I was definitely expecting a better price than that.

Oh well, it happens and I had already moved on from the sale when I received a message from a buyer – not the winning bidder but one of the other eight watchers.

Basically, this person missed the ending of the auction and he was still interested in the jacket.  If the winning bidder hasn’t paid yet, he was willing to offer me $50 plus shipping for the jacket.  Double the ending price…Hello!!

Related:  A Nike Jacket from Goodwill that I sold on on eBay for $86!!

At that time, the buyer hadn’t  paid yet and $50 was the price that I was expecting for this auction. So tempting!!  Actually, the best-case scenario would’ve been if the original winner didn’t pay so that I could sell the item at the higher price and keep my integrity as a seller in the process.  Win-win, right?!

Well, the winning bidder has already sent his payment so I guess that’s over with.  The rules are pretty clear about this one and you’re suppose to reserve the item for the winning bidder regardless of the ending price.

But let’s be real:  sellers end auctions early all the time or flat-out don’t send items altogether because they’re not happy with the final price.

Do I have the guts do that? Probably not.  Plus, part of the fun and allure of eBay is scoring great deals on items so I wouldn’t want to deprive the winning buyer of that experience.  But still, I’d be lying if I said that I didn’t at least consider the possibility.  I hate leaving money on the table!

In the end, I had to inform the buyer that I couldn’t accept his $50 offer and that I was obligated to sell it to the winning bidder.  Painful as it was.

How about you?  Would you have cancelled the winning transaction and accept the $50 offer?  If not, what if he offered you $500 instead – would that make a difference?

I’ve already had conversations with other eBay sellers about these two auctions and there’s differing opinions on this.  There’s no real consensus which I found really interesting.

So what do you think?  Would you have done anything differently?  I’d love to get your take.

I hope you’re having a great day and I’ll talk to you soon!

How to Resell Thrift Store Safari/Photography/Fishing Vest on eBay [Video]

 

Happy Monday resellers!  I hope you had a great weekend on and off eBay – I certainly did.  All those bids and sales over the weekend never fails to get me excited for another awesome week.

Today, I wanted to share with you a quick video about a great thrift store item that  many people quickly dismiss and overlook, and that’s multi-pocket Safari/Journalist/Fishing vest.

Related:  How to Resell Thrift Store Asics on eBay [Video]

I was certainly one of those people who didn’t think twice about these vest until I realized just how valuable they really were on eBay.  Since then, I’ve always been on the lookout for these items and I HIGHLY recommend you do the same.

In this short video, you’ll discover all the things you need to know about these great items.  Please enjoy and I’ll talk to you soon!

Back to Buy-It-Now With a Bang

 

Hey resellers, I hope you’re having a great Friday and your pumped and ready for another great weekend on eBay!

No, I haven’t completely switched to using Buy-It-Now (BIN) auctions but after a few weeks of using only auction-style listings I was ready to loosen the reins a little and post several of my items using BIN.

The vast majority of my listings are still using auctions and I have it set up so that I have several auctions ending almost every day which gives me that nice, steady flow of income.

And now, on top of that,  I have a few BIN auction sprinkled around which provides that extra unexpected jolt of sales that’s always nice to get.

So how do I decide which items to auction and which items to BIN?  Great question.  I’m using BIN for those items that I’m pretty familiar with and have a good grasp of their market price, and for me that’s sneakers.

Related: How I turned $14 into $225 with these Sneakers

Several of my Nike’s and Air Jordan’s have been converted from auction to BIN and I’m hoping, with the NCAA March Madness tournament underway, that there’s going to be some excited basketball fans ready to splurge a little on eBay.  (If you check the last item on this post, I think this may have already started).

I’m headed to Savers and possibly The Salvation Army today to stock up for the weekend.  Now that my NCAA brackets are ruined – ok, not ruined but it definitely was NOT  a good start – there’s no reason for me to be glued in front of a television :)

Have a great weekend and I hope your brackets are doing much better than mines, cheers!

Paypal and eBay Separation Anxiety

 

This has been an interesting week to say the least.  The sales have been brisk and steady but the thing that stood out for me this week has been one teeny – tiny – miniscule transaction that has caused me such huge headaches.

The crazy thing is that it has nothing to do with the buyer (he’s actually a great guy from what I can gather) and it has nothing to do with a return or partial-refund request (thank goodness), but rather it’s because of a miscommunication between Paypal and eBay.

Here’s the item that I sold.  It’s an Apollo 11 Lunar Module Kit.  It’s pretty cool actually.  Someone donated two of these kits in brand-new, sealed condition and I was able to scoop up both of them for $4.99.   I sold this one for $24.99 and the other one for $26.00.

The buyer paid immediately and I got that “Ka-ching” sound that I can’t get enough of.  Pretty standard so far.  However, as I logged in to my Paypal I couldn’t find the payment anywhere in my account.

That’s interesting, never seen that before.

I went back and forth between eBay and Paypal accounts and nothing.  On eBay, it shows that the item was paid for but Paypal says otherwise.  Even though the buyer had great feedback (600+ positive transactions),  I wasn’t about to ship the item without confirmation from Paypal that the funds had arrived.

I hate doing it but I saw no other choice but to call eBay customer service.  I was on hold for 30 minutes only to be told that they didn’t know what was going on either and that this was actually a Paypal situation.

Okay, so I get transferred to Paypal but I couldn’t get a straight answer from them either.  As a matter of fact, I got no answer.  I was told that the buyer had to call because it’s his account that has the issues.

Great, now I have to explain to a buyer that he has to call customer service.  I was a little nervous because you never know how some buyers will react sometimes but luckily he was extremely understanding and, even though he had to endure the “joys” of calling customer service, he was just glad to finally get things straightened out.

It took FOUR days for the payment to finally post to my account and, when it finally did, it showed that they took out almost 50% in fees!  So I call them back AGAIN to see how they got that number and finally, mercifully everything is set and I was able to ship the item yesterday.

I’ve never talked to Paypal and eBay customer service so much in my life!

As you may have heard, Paypal and eBay separated earlier this year and both are now operating as independent companies.

Is this incident a by-product of that separation?  I sure hope not!  Because it definitely a frustrating experience.  We’ll just have to see I guess.  But I’ve already heard from other sellers that similar “miscommunications” have happened to them also.

Hopefully both sides are just going through a weird breakup phase and they’ll get this straightened out soon.   I can’t endure to be put on hold for another 30 minutes!

These Sales Look Promising

With that in the rear view mirror I can finally look forward to several auctions that I’ve been keeping a close eye on.  I have a few that are ending within the next few days that look REALLY promising.  I’m talking 12, 14, 18, 22 watchers so I’m hoping for some nice fireworks when the auction ends.

Wednesday is one of favorite days to go thrifting because it’s slow, which usually means that the stores have time to recover and re-stock.  I got my sights set on Savers in the morning and then Goodwill later on tonight.

Wherever you’re going thrifting, I wish you the best of luck and a jacket rack full of $1000 Canada Goose jackets…authentic ones of course!

Talk to you soon,

Meinard

 

 

 

Finds of the Week (March 13, 2015)

 Here Comes the Weekend!

Nope I’m not excited about hitting the town or going out for a few drinks.  I’m excited because the weekend (Sunday’s especially) has been an absolute goldmine for me the past few weeks.

Sorry, I saw the word “excited” and the Saved by the Bell fan in me couldn’t resist to put this in here:

Sorry about that….actually, I’m not – that show is still AWESOME!

Anyways, I’ve hit some amazing numbers and I’m hoping to keep the streak going.

I went to Savers and Goodwill  yesterday and I found some amazing items that should get the bids rolling.  There were some great shoes yesterday and I’m particularly excited about the boots.  Why?  Well, let me put it like this:  cashmere is to sweaters what snakeskin is to boots.  Hopefully that makes sense lol.

ShoesI just finished cleaning them so now it’s all about taking pics and actually getting them up on eBay.

By the way,  in my previous posts I wrote that I couldn’t remember who it was that let me know about the Canada Goose brand.  I believe in giving credit where credit is due so I want to take a second to thank Chris for letting us know about that great brand.

 

Related post I Just Found a $1000 Jacket…Too Bad it’s Fake!

Hopefully we all can find an AUTHENTIC one during our next visit.  If you’re on Twitter be sure to follow Chris (@ChrisLoupos), great guy and very knowledgeable about reselling!

Happy Friday and I hope your smartphones are chiming off the hook with bid notifications and BIN sales!

Talk to you soon,
