I think some stuff just doesn't sell. In my experience, I could've listed something and it took 2-3 weeks for it to sell...or for it not to sell at all and me end up taking it down and putting up again later. You could definately try bumping them up for offers...I dunno....

Honestly, I'm not sure. I like the blue aplix one but I've been overspending lately and as of this morning, I'm on notice.

If I were you I would try retaking the pictures in a more lighted setting. A lot of them look kinda dingy, but it seems like that might just be because its pretty dark in the pic.

Good luck!

I agree about the pics. If you have any type of photo software on your computer, you could try brightening them on that (rather than re-taking them all).

i think this just happens sometimes...i've had a bjm soaker up for grabs for several weeks now...nobody is biting and i figured it would've been snagged up really fast!

Re: Why arent my daipers selling?

I actually have your FSOT thread saved in my faves so when I find out the sex of this baby next week, I could see what you have left. My DH mentioned that I need to keep my spending down for a few weeks, but I think I can talk him into getting more after we have the ultrasound.

Hang in there. The other girls are right. Sometimes dipes just dont sell. Sometimes you need to give it a few weeks and try again.

Ill keep you on file for next week, okay?

Re: Why arent my daipers selling?

Diapers that aren't super popular don't sell as quickly - i looked over your listings and none of the types of diapers you listed are in the 'top five' for their category on diaper pin and don't have well-known brand names (like proraps pull ons - most people are familiar with the aplix, but pull ons are less highly rated).

I hope you're able to sell though! I would just keep bumping every few days. Maybe see if there are people ISO similar things in the ISO section.
