|Our girls are horse lovers. Last Saturday I was back from the sales in time to take my #2 to a horse party!|
You seemed to enjoy last Friday's post that shared a little about how I only list on ebay once a month. Today I want to tell you that I am the laziest, most procrastinating-ist ebay mommy out there. Which means if you are a lazy, procrastinating type mommy like me ebay might just be for you. As I write my thoughts in the blog posts to come in the near future, you'll see just how truly lazy and procrastinating I really am!
You might think that if you list something on ebay, you HAVE TO ship it out the next day to keep up good feedback and to keep your customers happy. I'm here to say that's just not true. In fact, on my listings I specifically state that I will ship within 5 business days of a cleared payment. Now, I usually end my listings on Thursday nights (this week was different because we are leaving soon for vacation). If I end my listing on a Thursday night, I actually have until Wednesday night of the next week to ship the package and keep ebay and my customers happy. And you know what? Sometimes I take that 5 full business days to ship, because my family comes first and I'm a serious procrastinator. Usually though, I have most of my items ready to go by that Monday morning. But I NEVER put pressure on myself to mail a package out right away. I keep my 5 business day promise and that just has to be good enough. And you know what? I've never gotten a negative feedback.
So relax. Be lazy. Procrastinate. It's gonna be just fine.
