April/May eBay Sales Update.

If your eBay sales are not doing well  here are a few things you should do to improve them

  • List at least one item a day.
  • Update at least one item that has not sold
  • Do you have updated item specifics in your listings?
  • Offer Free Shipping
  • Offer Free 30 day returns

Here are the stats on the 2 ID’s I am responsible for their sales.


I realize that not everyone can ‘do’ 30 day free returns, or free shipping.  YOU CAN list items everyday or update your old  listings.  I promise this will make a difference in your eBay sales.

When You Buy a Pallets of Product.

I buy pallets of products from different companies to re-sell.  I NEVER seem to take any photos of  when we unload the truck, unbox the merchandise etc.  I promised myself on Friday that I would do that this time… But I didn’t.

In this photo you can see some product in the front.. and #6 inside the box.. with Elvis smelling it.  Before I went to bed Saturday #1 asked me what I really wanted done that I didn’t think I could do on Sunday.  (We had family over)   I told her I would really like to get the boxes out of the living room and the stuff sorted by brand and put in totes.

I woke up Sunday and Look what she did!  Now to carry them all to the “working” area.

Odd eBay Message?

I received this message today.  (I’ve never been messaged by this buyer)

“You know what is funny? A friend of mine was looking for a cookie jar… she loves to bake, she found this one on line here, neither her or I had thought The 51 inches was a circumference measurement. As it turns out she has cats… who would have guessed that? I was on the phone with her today when she realized it was for cat treats. Kind of wish the jar had a reference to its size in a picture. I had paid for that for her, and now will likely not get my money back out of it.”


What do you think she means?

Here is what I think:

She purchased a cat treat jar for her friend.  She thought it was a cookie jar, her friend thought it was a treat jar.  Both of them thought it was 51 inches around?  She would like to get the 18.00 she spent on the jar back because it was not 51 inches around.


Here is what I wrote her back:

I am so sorry this was not what you expected.  I show it is 5.25″ around.  I would be happy to refund your money if you’d like to send the item back.  We do have free returns.

Corona Virus + eBay = Wild Returns

Sometimes I get some crazy eBay messages from eBay buyers.  This message was a little off to me.

Purchased a lawn chair, in February 2020

Message from buyer:

I’m contacting you in regards to the above aforementioned items. I received the package it was in fine condition I open up the box and remove the folding lawnchair. I have two friends come over if I’m lucky weigh 150 pounds each and they collapsed in the chair. The screws that it hears the chair together in the middle popped out that was very dangerous I had to help these ppl up. Fortunately neither was injured.

Please contact me with what you would like to do with regards to this situation. I did not want to leave a bad review on this.


My message

I am so sorry this item is broken.  Could you take a photo of the damage?

Message from the Buyer:

No I do not have a camera. Just send me another item.  The Corona is going around!


My Message:

I am so sorry this happened to you. We have a 30 day return policy, and I see you purchased this in February. If you would like to return it you can send it to: XXX and we will refund your money.


Message from the Buyer:

Seeing the covid 19 has been around since January, it would kind of you to extend the return policy as well as credit me and send a new 1.


So she can’t send a photo, and can’t send the item back because of the Corona virus.. but can have friends over to sit in 1 lawn chair not 6ft apart?
