Ebay buyers - help me out

i have a massive collection of maternity clothes, i dont know the best way to sell it on ebay -- like small groups, like 5 pairs of jeans, tee shirts, dress pants, other categories, single items, or just in a huge lot of clothes, if you were to be buying maternity clothes on ebay, how would you prefer to get it?

  • I would say lots too...just beware that sometimes lots do not sell as good as listing items singly. I know that when I list items as a group they don't always sell...but then when I relist them individually they sell. Try it both ways. Good luck

  • all at once. you can say its a bundle deal. its so funny that you would have a ebay question about this bc my SO just went to work and took the Credit Card and said no more ebay shoping we have enough stuff.... but i like bundles.

  • I agree that "lots" are nice, but I usually search for one thing at a time, like a lot of shirts or a lot of pants (I don't mean a bunch I mean like a group).

  • I would rather get them in groups of type of clothes. Like all the pants of one size, all the shirts of one size, etc. This is mostly because I am big in the hips and thighs so I have to buy size large maternity pants but then I wear size medium shirts. So if someone was selling all medium clothes, I wouldn't be as inclined to buy them.

  • if you have too many you can;t list hem all anyway because you are only allowed 12 pictures. What most people do is pu them in outfites and have 2 outfits in each picture. Most people do want to recieve a huge lot and you make more int he end.

  • If they are all the same size, then list them in outfits. maybe 2 outfits in each lot. If they are not the same size, then separate them into size lots. Thats just the way I would do it. You can only list 12 pics per listing so keep that in mind. good luck.

  • I always sold mine grouped as sizes and seasons. Sell them as a lot of.... If you have something really great that you paid good $ for and is in great condition sell it separate and take a great picture up close and make sure to iron it. Wrinkles distract the buyers. Crisp and clean helps selling :)

  • Probably single pieces for me. You might do small groups 2-4 pieces. I'd do like items though. Maybe just pants or a couple of shirts, possibly an outfit if you have things that go well together. Some ladies are picky and buying a large lot may not be what they want.

  • Advertise it as HUGE LOT of maternity clothes and start your price low enough to get attention. Make sure you've included the correct shipping amount---clothes weigh up fast!
    The final price will be what they value 9x out of ten, so don't mark them too high or nobody will even look.
