{ ME vs. debt }


Check out my guest post today on Man vs. Debt ---- How I paid of $15,000 in school loans in 9 months by selling 'stuff' on ebay.

ps. Thank you Colgate for the wonderful (albeit expensive) education. However, I am equally as thankful to finally done with my school loans. Hooray!

That's wonderful that you finally paid off your school loan. I never tried Ebay but wondering how do you pack them and going to have it shipped?

Hi Christy - I have a scale to ship orders so I just weigh it once packaged up and plug the weight into paypal multi-order shipping which is linked up to usps.com - then print out the labels... Good luck!

Okay I just read your guest post and I am inspired. A good purge would help pay for future projects.

Question:

If I have about 3 weeks to sell the following items (about 40 items @most):

-books
-dvds
-anime toy collectibles
-clothes/shoes

And I've never sold anything online before, which is the quickest method for a novice to unload all these items? Like what do I need/ don't need?

Strongvillage said...

Oh wait, I have another question:

If I'm just selling these items to fundraise my moving out of state (it's just a garage sale to me), do I need to get a seller's permit? Or will I get in trouble?

Strongvillage said...

Ok, LAST QUESTION. Promise!

(pulled all-nighter so not thinking straight)

Does eBay charge you even if your listed item doesn't sell?
