My sales this weekend were up, I dropped my prices to counter the lack of demand. As far as in-demand items, I think there are many options to think about, if anyone can get a bunch of water purification tablets, this is something that I think is now in demand, I bought 100 tabs online the other day for 9.00 including shipping. To make any money though you would need to source 100,000+s of them

With supermarkets being stripped of food and toilet roll we may be moving back to a WW2 situation with growing your own veg. The seed sellers look to be doing quite well! And as for bidets?

Seriously though, people do buy more garden related and diy product this time of year and with them having to maybe stay at home much more these areas should increase.

Just a thought.

UK government hasn't helped with the poor help for the self employed.

I have a supplier now wanted 2k from me as an order of mine is ready.

I hope they understand when i tell them i will pay once all this blows over and normal selling resumes.

Thankfully besides my gym being closed and nonessential businesses being closed, my work goes on along with my biz. Sadly stocks and holdings are down but I don't depend on them so much so I'll let them sit and wait.

I went and bought a home gym just days ago as this lockdown was obviously coming. Usually, I leave these things too late and end up regretting it.

Some great no weight workout routines are being added to Youtube.

Have a gander if you haven't already.

I don't hold a great deal in stocks but I do have some.

This doesn't bother me at all. I don't plan on cashing out for decades and they will bounce back like they always do.

Glad to see I'm not the only one having training withdrawals! I usually lift weights at 7am and then in the evenings I train at an MMA club doing boxing, ju-jitsu, wrestling, muay thai, Judo etc so I'm finding myself with a huge amount of free time. I ordered some commercial gym equipment for the house, but I mostly miss sparring, as nothing gets rid of ebay related stress more effectively than a mate punching you in the face lol sometimes after speaking to ebay on the phone I have to drive to the nearest punchbag!

On a more relevant note, I'm surprised to see so many people seeing a drop in sales, as my sales have actually gone up slightly (definitely non essential items) so I just presumed everyone is sitting at home drinking wine and buying stuff lol

Rough break of your routine indeed.

As for your sales...that's awesome that it's gone up

I don't think folk are sitting at home buying non-essential fluff for the sake of it, I'd guess the opposite.

But I guess that as most responsible sellers put their accounts into holiday mode then those who continue to sell and ignore social distancing requests will have better chance of making sales.

honestly i am not touching anything in terms of healthcare and food items

I did had opportunity of Mask,vitamin c iron etc in millions THE SOURCE COUNTRY I WORK WITH HAD them dirt cheap but i turned it down because i felt like this is not good and now i am really glad that i did people are selling these mask with huge profit people who got money are buying in bulk which is creating panic in market.

We all made money all these years with help of this forum morally or unmorally

but i just think i need to give a break in such situation

I sell electronics, sales were over the roof and it caused a limitation that then caused my paypal account to be suspended last week, I have lost about 5000 worth of sales since then, I have people messaging me because there are unable to pay.

Well thats certainly what I've been doing, just sitting here waiting on my new VR setup to arrive and none of my competitors seem to have stopped selling, so I don't think that is why my sales have increased so much lately, although what you're saying does make sense.

I've had to close my car dealership, which comprises of two separate sites that will continue to charge me rent, so I won't be giving up my ebay money. Plus it gives me something to do all day.

And considering I live in a very rural area in Northern Ireland (can see cows from every window), and the local post office operates through a glass barrier, I don't think I'm putting the country at risk. I pre-print my labels, and then just leave the stack of parcels in front of the hatch and leave. Plus the post office has a free hand sanitizer dispenser and I always drink some straight from the nozzle.

One of the key parts of stealth is having a few accounts running - that really stops things like that having as much of an effect as just running a single account

Just to give you an idea of what they are buying. Sold in the last 24 hours-motherboard, filters, car parts, faucet, electronic components, supplements. No rhyme or reason. Running alot more auctions now too as it seems people want to win at something.
