Today, after much pre-preparation, I did my first listings for Ebay prints. It was encouraging to find out that I'm not alone in thinking this is a good idea. This little article was written ten years ago, and so it is noted that postage costs have sky-rocketed since then, and now, using Canada Post's most basic shipping, it's not cool that the postage charges will be a lot more than what I'm going to be asking for my prints. On the up side, Ebay has reduced their listing fees to "free"! They only charge now for extras, and then a small charge when the item sells.
So here's how I'm doing my "priced to sell" breakdown -
- 4" X 6" for $3.95 + $4.00 S&H to Canada and USA (in a bubble envelope)
- 8" X 10" for $6.95 + $15.00 S&H to Canada and USA (bubble envelope plus cardboard backing and wrapped for protection)
- 8.5" X 11" for $7.95 + $15.00 S&H to Canada and USA (bubble envelope plus cardboard backing and wrapped for protection)
- 13" X 19" for $12.95 + $25.00 S&H to Canada and USA (mailing tube, rapped on both sides for protection)
