What I've Sold on ebay Recently

March 29th, 2010 at 04:40 pm

I wanted to figure out how much profit I've made over the past few weeks on ebay. Here's what I sold and how much profit I made on each item. Some items I actually made a dollar or two more on because I seem to make my shipping a little higher than necessary but I'm not including that in my totals. The text books I actually bought a month ago on ebay in hopes to make a few extra dollars reselling them. I bought about 6 of them and have sold 4 already.

Rock Band-17.60
Mario Party 8-20.07
Legend of Spyro-7.76
A book, cd, and 2 dvds that I made about 50 cents on each-2.00
Grand Theft Auto-6.11
Physics Textbook-3.86
Business Textbook-23.46
Management Textbook-11.34
Accounting Textbook-27.44
Rollercoaster Tycoon-3.65
Xbox 360 Hard Drive-11.86
Estee Lauder Cream Samples Lot of 2-6.93
Exorcism of Emily Rose UMD-1.18
Estee Lauder Cream Sample-1.05
Evanescence Anywhere But Home DVD-2.00

That comes out to 150.50. I know I said in my last post that I've made close to $300 but I remembered I had to refund an $130 item. Also, I sold an Xbox 360 but I highly doubt the buyer is going to actually pay for it so I'm not counting it yet. We'll see what happens with that one.

Currently I have two broken Xbox 360s listed, a broken cell phone, and a Playstation game up for auction. I have a couple of other things I'd like to sell but I need to borrow my sister's camera to take some pictures. Honestly, I just want to make a few extra bucks, get rid of some of the junk I'm not using, and get some more positive feedback. I've ordered a couple of items that I'll be testing to see if I can make a good profit on within the next couple of weeks. I'll keep this updated when I find out how well these items sell. Crossing my fingers!

    I make approx $400/mo selling my old stuff on Ebay. I aim for $100/week. Currently I have 11 auctions going and the total is at $53.95 with 5 days to go on this batch.

    Just keep listing stuff. What happened with the $130 item you had to refund?

    It's hard to turn a profit on Ebay. I'm not sure what items you ordered to sell but just be careful. The only items I have made a profit on are items classified as collectibles that have increased in value since I originally bought them.

    The seller sent me back the $130 item because one of the cords was broken. I'm trying to resell it (obviously for a lower price).

    I'm just testing different things to sell. First I tried buying broken Xbox 360s to fix and then resell and then I failed miserably at fixing them. Then I decided I'd just go to yard sales and thrift stores every week and try to find good items to resell. I decided against this because I might find a couple of items to resell but I know I couldn't depend on yard sales to provide a good amount of profit every week. Then I decided to make t-shirts. I took in consideration the cost to make them and then picked a competitive price. But then I had second thoughts because I would need to sell 20 a week to get $200 and I was unsure of the quality of my shirts compared to others on ebay so I decided against the t-shirt thing. I don't want to say what I'm planning on doing right now but if it fails, I'll be sure to post about it on here. If it works, I would need to sell 4 per week in order to make $200. My friends and family always told me I was too smart to work in retail for the rest of my life. So I'm putting my brain to good use right now. Smile

    Yeah, it's hard to find stuff at yard sales. But I did find a wine stopper at a flea market last year for $3 which is currently at $10.50 w/ 5 days to go (and the same 2 people seem to be fighting over it lol) so you never know.

    Good luck! Keep us posted!

    We buy a lot of game systems/accessories/games on Craigslist (low) and sell (high) on ebay. A LOT of people with a pile of games to sell, but not wanting to go through the ebay hassle.

    My spouse doesn't spend a lot if time on it and nets around $100/month. OF course, the perk is all the free accessories and games. If he sold EVERYTHING, I Am sure we would come out much further ahead. For him, pays for the gaming hobby, and then some.

    If you put the work into it, I know a few people who have done quite well on ebay. It's just, you get out what you put in, generally.
