I have just finished selling my old direct sales demo items and business supplies. I spent the week posting auctions, watching auctions and shipping 23 items. The whole week! What am I doing wrong? It must be something or people wouldn't be doing this for a living.

I'm not sure what you mean by doing something wrong. Ebay is a lot of work. I sell vintage clothing and electronics with my husband. It means going to the warehouse to get the stuff, taking pictures of it, thinking up write ups for each item and listing them. Then there's the packaging and shipping. It's pretty much our job and our hobby. It's definately full time. We try to sell 50-75 items per week.

Maybe I wasn't doing anything wrong. Perhaps just inefficient. I'm not sure. I certainly is a lot of work. I give you a lot of credit.

You do well with it, then?

What tips would you give to someone thinking about selling on ebay regularly? Is it easier to do one item and a time? Or all the photos first, then listings, etc? Do you designate one day for shipping? I guess my biggest difficulty with it was the shipping part. Do you keep an inventory of boxes, etc? Do you have UPS pick up? How did you find out about the warehouse where you pick stuff up?

Sorry for all the questions. I'm just very curious about it all now.
