We entered the month of July on a high note. As I mentioned in June’s income report, we made a rather large liquidation purchase and we were able to get it out the door and into Amazon’s warehouse right around the 2nd of the month. By July 3rd we were back to having $1k+ sales days after our slump in sales in June and on July 7th we experienced our highest post-Q4 sales day which was $195 shy of a $4k sales day. Things were going great for us up until July 16th when we received a “suspended” notification from Amazon…

Disclaimer:

As I usually preface in most of my income reports, the figures that I report below are from part-time re-selling. The hours that I put in fluctuate from 2 to 15 hours per week. My first and full-time job is my family and my home. I occasionally have the help of my husband and that equates to approximately 1 to 6 hours per week.  No week looks the same for us. Re-selling is something that we both do on the side and unless our circumstances change, it will remain a part-time venture. With that in mind, if you can dedicate full-time hours to re-selling, your numbers will in all likelihood be higher than those that I report on this blog.

With that out of the way, let’s jump into the numbers and more details about our suspension…

eBay Sales

Unfortunately, our eBay sales took a backseat once again this month. This was mainly due to processing the 8 pallets worth of goods that we liquidated in June and then dealing with an Amazon suspension. I only managed to list only a few items for the month. Here are the numbers:

This post is almost 2 months overdue (at the time of writing), but I’ve finally found some time to sit down and recap what has been going on since I last blogged.

June’s income report will be rather short. The month of June did not involve much in the way of re-selling. Instead, Hubby and I spent that time preparing for and teaching Vacation Bible School once again as well as attending graduations and taking a mini-sourcing vacation. As a consequence, our Amazon sales took a huge dip but we did have a good month on eBay…all things considered.

Without further ado, here are the numbers…

eBay Sales

I hunkered down in June to get some much needed listings up. If you can’t tell, I really don’t like the listing process!

Most of our sales didn’t take place until the end of the month once we were through travelling and teaching Vacation Bible School. Even with only 2.5 weeks worth of listing and sales under our belt, we were very close to hitting $1k in profit for the month. Here are numbers (nicely formatted and calculated thanks to Easy Auctions Tracker):

 

These numbers are the result of 56 sold listings. Our average sales price was $30.81 and 100% of our sales were liquidation items that have been sitting unlisted for quite some time. Some of the electronic items had been unlisted since January.
