Not sure why I started thinking about eBay tonight. I haven’t bought anything from eBay in years. Then I thought back to the two and only two times I’ve sold something on eBay.

Back in the summer of 2004, I sold two invitations to participate in the Gmail beta program. I think I had ten invitations at the time and I didn’t know what to do with them. Then I read somewhere that people were selling these things online. Since I didn’t even have to ship these invitations, I thought it would be a no hassle sale.

I put up one invitation for bidding and I wound up making about $20 of profit from the sale. Excited, I put another one up for bid. That invitation didn’t barely made my minimum bid and I believe I made $5 from that. I stopped putting up invitations after that.

Have you sold anything on eBay?

One thought on “SOLD!”

  1. I’ve sold quite a few things on eBay, just not in a long time. The biggest profit I made was on a PS2 copy of Bubble Bobble, which I bought at Wal-Mart for $20 knowing it would fetch me $65 on eBay. Which it did. Looking back I should have bought all the copies from Wal-Mart.
