most of it is hardly ever worn stuff that my lo wore once or twice and then grew out of. I'm feeling a bit gutted that I have to sell it anyways so don't want to just give it away to someone but not sure what would be reasonable price to put on it in local paper/Tesco
i was going to, but, if i start it at say 99p per bag (just as an example) and only 1 person bids 99p, then I'm going to be really gutted about clearing it all out & won't have much to show for it iyswim.
bundles tend to sell really well - make sure the stuff is clean and ironed and take good pictures - name any designer stuff or 'good' brands to get people interested. If you are worried about low bids then you can start the bidding higher or put a reserve on it?
It is a risk you take, but having a low start price means that you pay a lower listing fee AND you attract more bidders who are out for a bargain. Have your auction end at a busy time - 8pm Sat / Sun night is a good time, right at the start of a month when people have dosh. And use a courier so you know what the cost will be for postage - I use parcel2go who do a service for Ebay that is £7odd. Put in your listing that it will be by courier. Put other important things that apply and attract customers, if they apply, such as smoke-free home, pet-free home, washing in non-bio etc etc.
Well start it at a price that you will be happy for it to go for.
You either want small bundles that weigh less than a kilo for cheap 2nd class post or huge bundles that you can send cheaply by courier.
If you have any very expensive stuff like Monsoon etc then make a small bundle of that then a huge bundle of everything else. You need to sell it at the right season too so you could do a 0-6 months autumn winter bundle in a couple of weeks time.
I think you should be looking at around 50p per basic outfit/cardigan but less for vests/tights/t-shirts. Really car boot sale prices.
thanks for the advice, will start separating & ironing tomorrow now it's all washed and maybe just try a few items to start with to see what I get for them. I just don't want to end up feeling cheated, even though my lo has had her use from them and they are just lying around!
wotulookinat was going to put 2nd class or pick up only for larger bundles if i did list but will have a look for a courier as well. thanks
Things like 4 or 5 "outfits" should weigh less than a kilo (use your kitchen scales to check & remember to allow for wrapping/tape) starting bid of £4.99 plus postage so if they sell it would at least be a £1 per outfit hopefully quite a bit more.
I sometimes think individual things don't sell for much because postage is so high.
