Editing Photos & Listing on Ebay

This is how I edit photos for my Ebay and Etsy listings:

You can see I’m listing video game stuff for my son. He lives video games but decided to clean house a bit.

This is my listing process:

Hello Ebay!

Life has been so strange lately.  Have you ever had that feeling that things are about to change but you don’t know how?  I had that feeling a few months ago, and boy have things changed since then.

I used to sell a lot of my products, mostly Suncatcher Craft Eyes, on Amazon.  That changed recently when Amazon changed some of their policies.  It is no longer worth it for me to send products in to Amazon’s warehouse and have them sell and ship them for me.  It was costing me twice what it would cost on my own website or even Ebay.  So I switched to merchant fulfilled, which means my products are still on Amazon, but I’m shipping them myself.  More on that in this video:

To cover the lost income from Amazon, I started selling on Ebay, both my own products and vintage items.  It’s been a journey and a really fun one at that!  I’ve learned a lot over the last couple months, and I want to share some tips and tricks for selling on Ebay, so my new hobby is making videos while I list on Ebay.  Most of these have information I wish I’d known when I started.

Of course my Suncatcher Craft Eyes  website is still going strong, and so is Etsy.  I can’t wait to see what this new journey brings!

Take care, stay warm, and let’s hope this snow lets up sometime soon!

New Youtube video: Thermal printer review

I’ve had this Zebra GK420d thermal label printer for about a month now, and it has become my new favorite.  It’s easy to set up and print.  Printing is fast.  The biggest benefit is that the labels cost about 1/10th the price of 8-1/2 x 11 laser label sheets and no toner cartridges .

It was difficult to find instructions online how to print shipping and SKU labels for Amazon FBA, so I’ve included those in the video description.

Happy Spring!
