Start selling your junk on eBay
All of this drama. Let me tell you something, it is very good to be prepared. Very good to pay attention to the news as well. BUT DO NOT BE LIKE I WAS. I wasted about 6 years on BS. I stayed out of the market after 2008 like a tard because the collapse was right around the corner. Obama was talking my guns, and I was slated for the FEMA camps. All bullshit.

Now here is what I do. Watch this and see how I turn my trash into money to then invest and pay down debt. Do you have any idea how much money you would have made if you just chilled out, paid debt and invested. Jesus people.

Back when we sold on eBay I got the free flat rate priority mail boxes.
It cost around $5.00 to ship anything that would fit in that box.
Now it cost $19.00 to ship it !!!!

Yeah just doesn't work with the ungodly postage rates. Nobody is gonna pay 18$ to ship a 6$ vintage glass insulator. If you just have baubles to sell, do the garage sale thing.

As it is now, you have to lower your price to offset shipping.

I was a seller for a long time and got out of it for a couple years. Started back up this year and am pleasantly surprised that I can still make some extra bucks. Fear of germs is not stopping anyone. Kids clothes are money in the bank. It adds up!

Anything over 1lb HAS to ship Priority Mail.

Also, make sure you weigh your item with packaging prior to listing so you know what to charge.

Get a free pirateship.com account and it will save you tons on shipping. You just have to print your labels from there.

EBay stopped using PayPal. Kinda sucks because eBay sends funds directly to your bank account now and it can take several days before they release the funds, then several days for the funds to show up. Sometimes the customer will have our product in hand before we even get paid

Yes, eBay offers discounted shipping, too, just have to print their labels. The small flat rate boxes don't fit much, but if you have small items, it is a great way to ship. Also, the flat rate envelopes are larger, and can be folded into a shape of a "box", and is economical too. Just be super careful about shipping fragile items in the flat rate envelope.

Thank you for your info. I have not sold anything in a while. I see they changed their sales terms.

Making things more complicated. Shipping is indeed costly, even local, much more so if international.

I am only dealing collectibles/memorabilia. Facebook comes up with really good trade/sale groups sort of like "meet your own kind of people" groups.

Items we have can make other people happy.

Yep box it as you go. I keep all the old amazon boxes my wife gets and reuse them.

No need to inside out them or anything either.

get a good scale, and an account with ups. they even give accounts to low volume folks. saves a lot.

buy the bubble roll from wally world. saves a lot.

Also, go on nextdoor and ask if anyone is giving away bubble wrap or other packaging materials. Same on FB groups or FB Marketplace. We got our scale with the separate display unit for $26 at Sams Club about 3 months ago.

Re: Start selling your junk on eBay
Pirate ship is the cheapest way to ship because you get discounts on categories of shipping eBay won't give you.

Be prepared for a 1099 now even if lower volume and price accordingly.

That's not true at all if you know how to buy. I put a $8 dodad on my cc 4 months ago I made $33 off of after costs this week.

I pay my ccs off monthly though. Just kicking my own butt for not buying more.

Re: Start selling your junk on eBay
I buy and sell things based on if I need to use them. I don't just have piles of shit lying around because I'm not a hoarder. I'm glad you were able to make some cash but this doesn't apply to most people. Sure I do have a lot of 'stuff' but it all either has a purpose or it gets tossed in the trash.

(I've had a lot of success selling old hobby stuff before so this is a good method, I just don't like your premise :D)

I think people have always done that, sell something on Craigslist or what ever.. and they come to your house and pick it up. I am not worried about someone coming to my house. I have security systems, camera's, I am a huge dude and I have 2 huge house dogs.. that goes nuts when people walk down my street.
