I'm just curious to know. I listed my first item because I just want(ed) to get rid of it! (this auction is still active, so hopefully I will get rid of it soon!) I highly doubt I will get what I paid for it, so it's definately not about the money. I listed a few other things and one sold, I was hoping to make a few bucks out of it since I got it for more than 50% off and it's quite popular. Unfortunately, I got LESS than what I paid and that's not including the listing, final value and paypal fees! I was actually SUPER HAPPY to have sold my first item, I didn't even care that I lost a few bucks. It was so fun! I want to continue selling for all the above reasons, but I honestly hope to make a few bucks on the way!
