Hi all. I finally finished my quarterly taxes for 2018. I was quite shocked with the sales I made considering I haven’t been working on reselling as much as I wanted to. My husband works so much more now since his promotion, so my reselling life has always been prioritized less. My son of course is #1, My home and family time is #2, and Reselling is always last.
I do feel a little burned out but I think it’s from not managing my time well. I am glad I sold more compared to 2017. It shows I made more profit, and the inventory I sold definitely has a higher average sale price ( ASP ). I’ve honestly just been sourcing better.
Even though I have been reselling part time for years now, I still feel like I could curate my inventory better. I still don’t know who I’m catering to. I pretty much stick to 25-55 year old women.
Poshmark has been good to me 2018. I’m just surprised how much it has added to my sales. I roughly sold 7,000 there so I’m happy. Ebay has been good in terms of sales since it is still the platform I sell the most on. Though Poshmark had a few months last year it beat out eBay and I can’t believe that even happen considering I still have more inventory on eBay. Right now both platforms have almost the same amount of inventory. Ebay just has more in terms of auctions because I do get 500 free auction listings a month ( it’s part of my subscription).
So for 2019 I will be sharing just numbers with you. Nothing special, no hauls, just numbers. I hope 2019 will be better for all of you. Btw I won’t be sharing my store names. I know a lot of people hate that but I’ve seen how the internet is with resellers, and I don’t want to be stressed out with my algorithms. Perhaps I’ll explain it more in the future in my next post.
