Default EBAY UPCOMING BUSY SEASON? What to expect?

Hi! I've been selling on ebay since last February and haven't really seen any huge gains like a holiday push could bring. Just curious will it boost sales on average a good amount? I know it varies on what you sell etc. etc. but I'm talking more so traffic to the site in general? I do make money on ebay don't get me wrong but just wondering what the later months might do sales wise?

How long is a piece of string?

That's the generic reply.

Risky to assume how great or how poor ebay will be.

Traffic to the site will increase quite a lot but... if you sell swimsuits or ice creams it is not something that people will buy much around Christmas.

Yep, Thanksgiving can be the door opener.

Get all the accounts in order and trade well.

As others have said it depends what you sell.

Think of the gifts you typically buy others are christmas. Those are the ones that sell better.

Its a good time to diversify.

And becareful last year all the shipping companies could not handle the rise in online sales and priority mail was taking 13 days , Big mess, and with new metrics, could kill your account

I stopped selling December 12 last year , my last shipment went out on the 12th and arrived the 24th, so I got lucky and this was priority mail

With Christmas your Package needs to arrive before the Holiday , and you will get lots of Buyers concerned about this

You can lose a lot of accounts if you do not manage urself right in December, because UPS, OR USPS, keep selling postage on eBay regardless of late shipping but your accounts will be gone

@dmshark25 Thank You!
Thats the type of stuff thats really helpful to know. Are you planning on stopping this December 12th too? I figured there would be delays, not that much though.
@glacier922
I had around 8 of my new accounts getting 0/0's now I'm not...just mc999 account restriction which is the new mc999 call in for new accounts. Have to be verified on paypal, and linked to pass.

So would USPS First Class mail after Dec. 10th be unwise to do?

Yes I'm definetly giving myself that 2 week cushion, because every year there has been an increase on package delivery and online Sales
And I'm not going to put my accounts in the trust that USPS or Whoever are more ready to handle this years holiday

Last year was very busy, I would sell out on my account limits in one day with accounts that were 100/5000, it was like that from December 1 on for me

But we will see this year, I have no idea how it will be, something is definetly wrong with there search and traffic , I don't get it

But Amazon has been really busy already so I'll get the sales one way or the other

I was trolling through the Official Ebay forums this Morning and from reading past posts / experiences... Im sitting the holidays OUT.

1 the new 180 day rule with ebay/paypal (this is gonna bring out all the scammers)
2 alot of DUMB customers causing Extra Problems
3 shipping is going to be a mess

seems like selling during the holidays is going to be a disaster waiting to happen smh!

I you think it this way.. If you had a actual store you WOULD have people who would steal from you. Every store deals with shrink. In a way thats Ebays shrink, the online version.

If they do follow through with the one day transfer it will be great but of course they needed to balance it out with this killer of opening a SND case 6 months later
