How much you take in

I was just wondering how many people here sell on eBay casually just to make an extra buck, and how many run their auctions like a business? Anybody make enough ebaying to do it full time?

I'm in the casual buck camp. Mostly I've sold items I was given, didn't want and didn't want to add to my current clutter. I've also sold off a couple of pieces of the current clutter. And, I admit it, I sold a furby for a scandalous price when they first came out. I don't have the patience with people or energy it would take to do it full time.

I used to eBay full time. At my best, I probably grossed about $100/day and netted about 70% of that. It was very time consuming and alot of work. I worried day and night about things.

Now I just do it casually.

Its casual for me. If i did it full time i would stress out. Setting up the auctions and dealing with buyers all the time would eventually get to me.

Its great when you sell stuff that was given to you, everythign you make is profit in that case.
