I recently purchased this pair of Bloch leather ballet flats from another Ebay seller. It was a bargain since style of Bloch flats are $150 retail. They were also in wicked great condition showing very little wear.
Alas, they were a smidge too big for me. So I relisted them in my own Ebay store.
Why did I get $30+ more than the original Ebay seller? After reviewing their original listings I found:
- Photos in poor light
- Typos in the title
- Auction based listing
I searched sold listings of other Bloch ballet flats and found BIN (Buy It Now) listings commanded a higher price. I used the average sold price, set it as a BIN, and took photos in better light. I also made sure my listing was free of typos.
And then I tweeted and tweeted these bad boys to make sure my listing received plenty of traffic.
Sure enough, they sold within 48 hours and gave me a tidy profit of $21.35 after shipping costs and fees. Not bad for buyers remorse, huh?
