Well, maybe. My wife and I have been selling actively on Ebay for about a year now and have finally made the move to a Ebay Store. This will give us the ability to list a greater quantity of items for a greater amount of time and hopefully help with our sell through rate. Currently, our sell through rate is in a sad range of about 30% and at that rate the ebay fees for keeping things listed and relisted was eating up way too much of the profit.
With an Ebay store, I pay $15.95 a month and $0.03 a listing. Each listing lasts for 30 days. Each listing is also only listed as a BIN, or Buy it Now listing, with the Best Offer feature turned on. This gives us the ability to hopefully make a little more money on each item that sells and at the same time, let our customers haggle with us a little.
