December 13th, 2006 at 07:06 pm

One of my items on eBay sold at the 'Buy it Now ' price of $24.99 + $7 S&H. I'm so pleased! I might have been able to get a better price had it just gone through auction, but I 'm happy to have the sale. The item up for bid was a gently worn pair of women's Merrell shoes. My research indicated that shoes of this type are a popular eBay item, so I had a feeling someone would bite the 'Buy it Now' price. I've had the shoes for ~2 years and never really liked them, so I won't miss them one bit. I walk past the Post Office on my way to campus, so mailing won't be a hassle, either. I can see myself getting into this!

For any other ebay neophytes out there, let me assure you the process is easy. I downloaded the free Turbo Lister Software and was able to figure it out without having to read the instructions, but if you're not terribly familiar with computers / software I'm sure the tutorial does an excellent job.

I would recommend reading the fee schedule before you list, including all the optional feature fees. I failed to thoroughly do this. I now realize I could have saved myself some money by NOT listing a subtitle. The pricing list will also guide you in number of photos you can post for free and related issues.

After I mail the package and all the fees are charged, I'll post on just how much (or how little) I'll actually make in the end.

    Thanks - I just sold my first 2 ebay items - $80 & $420. Was a good end of year!!!!

    I really for the most part had no idea what the fees were - not exactly clear. I bookmarked your link - Thanks!!!!!

    It seemed so scary before I tried it. I have quite a few things to sell now... moving to some of the lower-dollar items...

    I love Merrell shoes! They are so well made, congrats on your sale--Ebay is great if you know your prices and have good items to sell

    I love Merrell's, too... but there was something about this pair that didn't look right on me. Oh well-- someone else can enjoy them!
