eBay Sales For August 2018 (Yes, August)

It Was The Best Month This Year!

I’m sorry I haven’t been posting much lately, but I have been focusing my time on my main side hustle, which is eBay sales.

I was able to take two weeks off of work and focused a bit more into sourcing stuff to sell on eBay. Thankfully, the last few days of the month have been big selling days and that managed to make August the best month so far this year.

eBay is still a part-time thing for me, but I do enjoy the hunt for new and profitable things to sell. I might not sell too many high priced items, but anything I do find costs me very little. I normally pay 89 cents per pound for the stuff I find.

Anyways, on to the chart for August.

Total sales of $2,657.23 from 96 items. That’s an average sale of $27.68.

I aim to have a profit of at least 50% and can often find my profit be around 60% of total sales. Most of my cost is shipping and then fees.

For instance, I paid $377.11 to thrift stores this month and some of that cost was for personal use items.

My selling costs that are tracked by eBay came out to $784.32. That means a rough profit of around $1,500.

Also, I started picking up DVDs and CDs to sell to the Decluttr app which are sitting in a few boxes right now.

All I can say is that reselling is a great hobby. I enjoy the hunt and the sale, it is only the listing and shipping that feel a little like ‘work.’

What about you? Do you sell things online? Do you enjoy thrifting?
