Sold An Item On Ebay

January 23rd, 2012 at 07:39 am

I sold the item I listed on ebay. I'm now waiting for payment. The buyer is new to ebay, so fingers crossed they can figure out how to pay me. The item sold for about $10, so I'll net a little under that with fees.

I also received my deposit from Paypal today, in the amount of $32.78, for surveys and other ebay proceeds. I'm waiting for nearly $19 from Half.com, too.

The profits will go to the Christmas Fund!

In other news, it snowed overnight. I have to go out and shovel. It will count as my exercise today, since I have the girls home and don't want to venture out on the roads just yet.

It might be a good day to look for more things to sell or earn points on Swagbucks. Smile

    Awesome! I have my fingers crossed that the buyer pays you soon

    Creditcardfree - how does delivery of bulky items work on ebay? I'm feeling guilty that I've been giving away things for free that could probably be sold for a small profit instead on ebay if I better understood how transactions involving items a little too big to mail are handled. (Like a never used dog gate and dog crate as an example.)

    @ERJ, bulky items are hard to mail on through USPS, and would be better sent by UPS or FedEX. I only sent one really large item and it honestly was a pain. It was very hard to estimate shipping. I would suggest selling the items you have on craigslist.org to someone more local looking to buy those items. I usually have people come to my home to pick things up and provide cash. It works pretty well and it's free!

    Oh my gosh, how right you are! I can't believe that never occurred to me before.

    Craigslist I understand - I'm listing both dog items today!

    Thanks! (blushingly typed!)
