Looking for some advice for anyone who has done this for a while. Made about $1k profit in the last month sniping on UK eBay at low margins. 95% of it is automated so the low margins didn't bother me - until I factored in VAT and then I have to almost double my sales to even hit that same profit after that threshold.
Possible but then there's the extra dealing with customers... I'm starting to rethink strategy (for the UK account at least). Either start listing higher margin snipes with a lower # of sales on the original listing or swapping to optimization.
Either way the overall conversion rate for the account is going to take a beating which I can't imagine will be a good thing. So I need to find the balance between getting enough low selling/high margin listings up to make it worthwhile without going nuts and uploading a thousand in a day.
Any suggestions appreciated.
