    To be honest, I let all my listings end in the new year. Took some time off. I'll be starting to list some items tonight and will keep adding a handful each day. I never have had that many listings. At most, I might only have 20 at any given time. I just don't care to deal with the questions when there are too many listings.

    I keep between 200-250 active listings most of the year & sell between 20-70 items monthly.

    I have about 30 listed that just relist until they sell. Just the other day I get a PayPal alert that says I have $100. It was from something my wife paid a quarter for and posted summer 2017. Nice surprise. We both hate the process of listing stuff on eBay and have thousands of items that need to be listed. 30 listings in one night sounds impossible to me, with my system anyway. Set up light box. Take pictures with phone. Transfer to computer. Photoshop if needed. Come up with description. Figure out shipping (which I always guess too low on!). We sell stuff at an antique mall and much of the stuff we come across is just more suited for eBay. I guess one day when we retire or get desperate we will get better at listing. If we each had 1,000 listings up at any given time I think we could go full time. If we would work half as hard for ourselves as we do for out employers we could go full time. If...

    RW, I don’t know how you transfer your photos from your phone to your computer but if you have the eBay app on your phone and you take pictures using it, the photos are automatically there when you access the draft of the listing on your computer. This may save you some time and effort.

    I never have more than the 50 free listings - usually about 20. Lots of things to sell though. Just dont like listing as much as finding.

    I have about 220 up right now. I'm taking it easy and only listing a few items a day at this point.

    I'm with RW. How the hell do you list 30 a day??

    My system is pretty much like his. Set up photo studio on the kitchen table. Take a buttload of pics (usually about 200 in a session). Spend 3-4 days editing/enhancing those pics into something presentable. Uploading the pics to Photobucket. Scouring the web for item specifics like a model number, a MPN, etc. Writing a description (or better yet, yanking one off a manufacturers website). Editing that into something concise. And finally posting on ebay and checking out competing items to figure out a price.

    What's your ebay ID? I'd like to look at your auctions and perhaps pick up a shortcut or two I can use.

    I just plug my samsung into the USB & charge port and navigate to where the pics are. My photos always need cropping and sometime I will take 2-3 of certain angles. I will only keep one. Besides how can you tell if they are in focus on your phone, need a big computer screen to see all.

    No way will I load a program on my phone to list auctions. I like to see what the auction looks like before I hit the "list" button.

    I have 54 right now. But, these are the ones I list till they sell. I use the 50 free ebay gives, just got another 200 free. I have not paid a listing fee in many years.

    I believe ebay pushes new listings to the top of pages and then moves them down and down. What I did yesterday was delete all auctions (they had 3-4 days left) and relist using the free listings I get.

    28 listings. Difficult to find any good items. The well has gone dry here.
