I came across a video the other day on how to sell things on Amazon (yes, I’m late to the Amazon party). I’ve always used Amazon to buy things but never to sell anything.
For those of you who were clueless (like me) about selling things on Amazon, embedded below is a concise and informative video on how to do it.
The day before my power outage, I placed several books and DVDs for sale on Amazon. Amazon has a 60 day renewal time frame. In other words if it doesn’t sell in 60 days you have the option to renew the listing. 60 days seemed like a long time so I didn’t expect to sell anything for at least the first 60 days.
Imagine my surprise when I woke up this morning and received an email notification that one of my items sold! Granted, the book only sold for $5.49, but it’s better to sell it for $5.49 than have it sit on my shelf collecting dust.
Our local library has become somewhat picky about donations and I don’t blame them. They receive so many old donated books that they get a bit overwhelmed. This secondary option of selling them on Amazon isn’t so bad at all.
