Ebay?

Do you think that I would have better luck selling my inventory piece by piece on ebay or in a gift bag with a few items together with a bow on it?

  • I am an AVID ebayer, and I can tell you i rarely buy things individually unless big purchase items. Selling whatever you have as a "lot" is probably a better deal, especially with the cost of shipping these days, it can eat into your profit. JMO

  • IF YOU SHOW WHAT ITEMS ARE IN THE GIFT BAG, BUT IF YOU DO PIECE BY PIECE AND CHARGE SHIPPING AND HANDLING YOU COULD MAKE MORE $$

  • I would probably make linked auctions. if you had a lot and I didn't want everything in it, I wouldn't buy it.. you can offer combined shipping.

  • I don't buy big lots. Two or three outfits at most. I prefer full outfits with a few coordinating pieces. Oh, I will buy pajama lots.

  • I was wondering about make up and body care. Single items or gift wrapped sets? Thanks

  • i'd want both options but that's just me so you can do the combined shipping. i use that often. sometimes i don't need one item or have plenty of it etc so i prefer to buy single items.
