I was just reading the previous poster re limited to 100 99p items per mont
unless you upgrade to business seller.

That is a bit of a nuisance as I started to clear out loads of old stuff
prior to me selling my house as I dont want to take the stuff with me.

So I have approx 150 CDs / DVDs
approx 80 knitting patterns
approx 20 vinyl records
approx 90 old cookery and other books.
approx 60 other assorted items

So listing every week that would be over 1000 listings per month so easily
would have �100 listing fees, I dont earn that from these items.

I dont after looking at their criteria come under `business` as it is all
`old` personal stuff not bought for profit nor handmade.

Now rather than chuck in the bin I sell for 99p + postage so make very
little, I used to put on for 7 days and just relist what hadnt sold. looks
like it will be easier just to bin the stuff than try and keep track of how
many I listed. If I start to incur listing fees I would soon run at a loss
as many things never sell for a few weeks.

Ah well it was fun while it lasted. A pity as a lot of this is in pristine
condition.

Can't you just use multiple Ebay accounts?

Yeah I suppose I could and probably will with whats left come June, although
I will probably still have restrictions I probably require around 400
listings per month, I will just have to make it a max of 25 items per
account as I list say every week (7 day listings).

I wonder of though if they will start to link up different accounts via
paypal and or email or IP addresses or whatever way they do that.

Sounds like you'd be better off listing the books, cds and dvds on Amazon.

I tried Amazon a few months back but cant get used to it, as I am not
worried about making too much money I will just stick with ebay as long as I
can.
