eBay / $$ for Challenge

January 26th, 2007 at 03:51 pm

After deducting the actual shipping and various fees, I made $2.51 on the sale and $3.13 on the eBay sale. I知 still awaiting payment on the second eBay sale.

I've learned that I need to be careful when shipping. I used my own padded envelope (cost $0.50) to mail one of the items today. It ended up cheaper to mail it Priority Mail, so I could have used a Priority Mail envelope at no extra charge. Lesson learned: Don't assume First Class will be cheaper than Priority!

In keeping with my rules, I値l deduct $0.40 for the insertion fees of the eBay items that did NOT sell. In the mean time, I値l add $5.24 (total of above items minus insertion fees of unsold items) to the Challenge. I値l update again once the second eBay item is paid for.

Old Total: $486.12
+ $5.24 eBay and sale
New Total: $491.36

    I learned that the hard way as well, it would have cost me less to ship priority mail
