For those who are not familiar, I started a series a while back called Turnover Tuesdays. Every Tuesday I like to highlight one item that I have resold. This will include profitable and non profitable sales. I hope that there is always something to learn.
The previous posts in the series can be found at the bottom of this post.
Walmart Was Going Great
If you've been playing along at home, I was hoping to use eBay and Walmart (mostly Walmart) to increase my sales and at a minimum mitigate the increased rent that I've begun to pay to allow for more merchant fulfillment and decreased Amazon storage fees. Walmart does not allow for multi channel fulfillment from Amazon so you must fulfill outside of your Amazon inventory. That requires space and a team to fulfill orders (or more time from you).
For a while, I was very excited about Walmart. For the first couple of months I was getting a lot of orders on Walmart's platform. Not all were very profitable, in fact some were actually losses but at least I was selling old inventory that was much less profitable on Amazon at that point (I wish I had been willing to lower some of them more as the price on some have continued to tank).
I was also selling some items that had great profits.
I was sure that the future was bright.
eBay Never Really Did Great
