I know that the recession might be playing a major part of that, but I was wondering if anyone else has slower sales.
Any ideas why or how I can improve my sales?
Most Ebay sellers notice a slow down in sales beginning in April/May and then it generally picks back up in August/September.
You may be able to drive some traffic to your store by participating in the Ebay forums and groups. I use to spend a lot of time there answering questions and make a lot of friends (and sales) but I don’t go there anymore since I now have a website that I own and run from home.
You should research ended listings to see what kind of products are hot right now, that is a good way to know what the market trends are.
Good luck to ya!
