Anyone selling anything on eBay? I sell a few things here or there such as jeans I buy and then decide not to wear. Since I mostly thrift shop I usually get a deal and then end up even if the items sell on eBay. Right now I have about 4things up, all of which have been up for about 15 days, unsold. I also enable the feature "best offer" which must be new - buyers can name their price and I can accept or decline it. Right now I have 5 or more watchers on all of my items and I have for the last week or so. But no sales and no offers. Weird! And kind of frustrating since I want to downsize my clothes. Do you sell on eBay? Do you have sinilar frustrations?

No I don't sell on ebay I was thinking about tho.. but it is the same way with the Facebook groups that sell stuff.. I have some good stuff on there but they are not going anywhere.

I agree about the Facebook griups. And the people on there are so flaky!! At least in my groups. Ugh.

@maezee yeah they are hear as well or they will try to get you way down on price or not show up when they say they want to buy it.

@hillhjill Exactly. I have zero luck with selling clothes on thise groups too. I do notice that household things and furniture seem to sell rather quickly!

Did you check if there is any similar jeans on sale on Ebay? Are they cheaper than yours? What about feedback? Do you have any positive feedback on your profile? Maybe it's due to feedback and cheaper competition. On top of that, Ebay is not what it used to be.

All good points. My prices I think are a little lower than others but I do have positve feedback, not many but I think 60.

Maybe your jeans product is too large, or it could be outdated. Some subliminal marketing messages on the product description may help to sell it. Maybe!

True. I am sure there are some more popular sizes and whatnot than others.

Some years back I bought a mini icecream maker which I have never received up until today. Frustrating
