The other day, I finally got around to selling some of my stuff. I've had this long-time ambition to rid myself of possessions I no longer need, but I was short on motivation. I attempted this a few times, but became overwhelmed with the flurry of options. eBay didn't seem permanent enough, Craigslist is still foreign to me and CAG is still to infantile. I choose to go with Half.com since it's listing are permanent, get a fair amount of traffic, and everything works like a store. ^_^
On Sunday (or Monday), I listed 23 items, but for some reason... it didn't update. I waited an hour... nothing. I waited a few more hours... nothing. I checked their forums and apparently they've been having servers problems and were incredibly back logged. I continued to wait. The next day... nothing. The next day... nothing. Yesterday... nothing.
Finally, this morning I got an email. "Your item has been sold!" Splendid! I checked my account and all my items had finally appeared in the system. Only a few hours after being live and I already sold something! By the end of the work day, another had sold!
Have a look for yourself. Here's my Half.com Shop.
Listing items is far simpler than eBay and doesn't cost anything to list! You just enter in your item, assign a price and up it goes. When someone buys one of my games, the money goes into my half.com account and then pays out twice a month to my back account. Pretty spiffy.
So far, I've sold Final Fantasy XI and Ar Tonelico. Final Fantasy XI sold for $10 and Ar Tonelico sold for $50, both at a $10 profit to myself. ^_^ In fact, the $40 price tag is still on Ar Tonelico. hahah
Anywho... so this is what I have listed so far:
And this is still what I have to list...
23 down... about 1000 to go. I'm still not sure how I'm going to list all my Japanese games..
