Is it really that slow, or is it me?

Everything I look at seemds to be selling for close to retail, but the things I've listed, well below, I don't get any takers.

Is it really that slow, or is it because I'm new and only have 1 feedback?

Re: Is it really that slow, or is it me?

Two things stand out to me:
1) Lots of people, myself included usually, won't bother to click a link to see pictures. So I'd add the pictures of each below your description.

2) People generally like postage included in the price (ppd) rather than having to PM for shipping quote, wait for a quote back, request PP addy, etc.

I agree with happygirl. Make it as easy as possible for the buyer and things will sell better.

What if you can't post pictures right on the listing because they are too big or you just can't do it yet?

I download all mine to photobucket and direct link them that way. (So, the photo comes up directly in the thread.) But, if you can't for some reason, then I guess you have no choice but to use a link. Just be aware that it might take longer to sell because it's not as convenient for people to have to click on something as it is for them to just look in the thread. Many buyers won't bother with links. It's just how it is.

I put the pictures directly into my posting and still have gotten no interest. Must be me then.
