Highlights From This Week's eBay Underground Discussions

Here's a feature I've gotten away from for some reason...

Our boards have been extremely active this week. It's so encouraging to see more and more new posters and lurkers coming out of hiding! We've covered some great topics this week. Many are ongoing, so if you have any thoughts or information you'd like to add, please stop by!

  • Several of our members have experienced several drops in their sales now that the holidays are over. A lot of buyers overspent for Christmas and have just gotten their credit card bills. January and February are a slow time for a lot of sellers. Come and read some tips on how to deal with slow sales during these months.  

  • eBay Top-Rated Seller evaluations just went through. Several of our members were excited to announce that they have joined the ranks of Top-Rated Sellers! Join us in congratulating them! (Tina has a great 10-part series on how to become a Top-Rated Seller in under a year. Check it out!)

  • When is the best time to list certain items? Find out when our members list seasonal items.

These are just the highlights. There have been lots and lots more topics going on this week. And as always, if you aren't interested in any of these topics, feel free to stop by and strike up a new conversation!


  1. This is great! I hope you continue this update with the highlights.

    Question, when I used the link and then signed in, I was unable to find the discussion about when to list. Could you give the the specific title? I went through a few, but was unable to find it, or under which subject heading? One of my weak spots is that I am always off on my timing for listing. Thanks.

  2. Arggghhh! Never mind. Sorry about that. Apparently if you are not signed in and use the link, it brings you to the main page, but if you sign in FIRST and then use your link, it does bring you straight to the article.

    Learn something new every day, I guess.

  3. Glad you found it, Annie! I plan to blog about the discussion board highlights at least once a week. When there's a lot of activity on the boards, it can be overwhelming to decide where to start!
