Had a ton of listings end tonight... most had at least one "watcher" (which I know doesn't mean anything except that it has been viewed) but *nothing* sold. Really nothing.
So weird... had tons of sales last week and this week... nada!
Anyone know what's going on?
I sold two things today on buy it nows. I think that yesterday being Father's Day might have slowed down sales. I have several items that have been viewed over 100 times and have over 10 watchers but no one is bidding. I know that if you have one or two watchers, it could just be other sellers, but I figure with over 10 watchers, someone must be seriously interested. eBay has been slow for me lately.
Summer is notoriously slow. It is usually a buyers market.
Sorry it's been slow for the sellers, I'm mainly a buyer.
I've been scoring some amazing deals on eBay the last 2 weeks that were just too good to pass up and couldn't figure out why/how I was getting them so cheap.
But ok that makes sense now, I just thought I was just extra lucky lately lol.
Summer is generally slow. Its always been a slow time for me. August and September are usually good months and when things start to pick back up. But it all depends on what you are selling, some items are more seasonal while some listings do well regardless of the season.
Also- I've posted in here before that eBay no longer sends me notification emails when they have free listing days. As a result, I check announcements every day. Surprise! Today's a free auction listing day. So if you don't have a store, list today for free. It doesn't specify this, but it also allowed me to add on BIN for free too.
I'm not a seller but as a buyer I don't get to spend as much time on the computer (and eBay!) because schools are out for the summer and my kiddos are home! I also think that many buyers tend to slow down a bit because of added expenses during the summer months such as vacations, camps for kids, outings during the week (if you are a stay at home mom like myself). All that adds up.
Haven't sold much the past couple weeks, it's been disappointing. I almost never have to relist my items, but I've relisted some of mine multiple times I bought some expensive items from a website that has the worst return policy ever, I'm really hoping I can sell these items this summer.
