Ebay Advice

I want to sell a bunch of older dvd's, mostly ones that have already been re-released with better versions and also some that I don't want anymore. There's going to be about 12-15 total. Should I list in one bunch or seperately?

separately, if you want to maximize value.

together, if you want to get rid of them quickly.

Yeah I was thinking seperate. It would cost me about $4 more to list them all seperately, but I guess I can make that up in shipping costs for the individual titles.

Another vote for separately. Check the current prices (and completed auctions) for the titles you have to get a sense of how to price your items - you don't want to have a started price of $8 on a DVD that has been selling in the $6-8 range, for example. Also, keep your shipping/handling charge reasonable - a single DVD will not be mre than $1.29 for First class mail, so I charge $2.50 to cover packaging, etc. - and that's still less than what a lot of sellers. charge.

I vote for separately also. I also suggest that you start the bidding really low, at $0.01 or $1. One of the keys to eBay, is to try and create a bidding war for your items.

I always start bidding at 99 cents and charge $4 for shipping, because I ship priority mail.

I suggest listing them separate...actually, try listing them one at a time... and in the description for the first disc list the others that you are selling and that the winning bidder of THAT auction gets first dibs on purchasing other discs on the list.

That reduces shipping costs for the buyer. And could speed up the process should someone be interested in more than one.
