QUOTE(beanschat @ Oct 1 2012, 05:16 PM)
well..almost 2 months since my last update..yesterday I went over the $500 sold plateau.  I have sold 292 items...

In September I sold 70 items for $94.51 at an average BV of 66%, which is my second highest discounted month.

Also Saturday, i shipped another 752 cards to them as it was the last to at their old pirces.  This month they have increased their price to .25 per card. 

My sales have still just pretty much covered their costs...however, I currently have 1655 cards active with a BV of $6247.15.

As a part of the increased costs, they have commited to more advertising including in every issue of Becket..so I hope to see increased traffic.

Ha, but its a fun ride. I was updating some of my stuff and noticed you had posted some new cards. I am closing in on 800.00 and have been doing really well with flipping cards. The flipping is tricky though, cause I have got burned by the recent specials and so many cards being added by others. I buy cards at a discounted price and still lose money to people who recently posted, specifically on 2012 stuff. In the end, I am having a blast and have just shipped 1800 cards to the site...I think that will be my last shipment for a while though, just too much time keep the prices competitive. Thanks again for tutoring me on this.

Hey Rodney!I do a little bit of flipping, I don't get burnt too many times though..but I shy away from the new stuff. I found a Manning RC for $5 that it took a month to sell for $8, so that covered my storage fees for the month. I also found an old White Sox team card (like 1957) that was in nice shape that I got for $2, and again a month later sold it for $8. You apparently have done better than I on selling though! Good job!

The site early in the year started selling the Beckett BV package which did not go over well with the members. Since then, sales have really flat-lined. I was up to about $150/month in sales, this month I am below $2 per day...with over $18000 BV on the site and 4700 cards. I am not nearly as happy as I once was though I have had over $2000 in sales. I have stopped sending in cards until the site can show that sales will increase again.
