Title: Need Help With a Starting Price - Walking Dead Weekly #1-4 Auction
Post by: EmeraldWarrior420 on February 23, 2014, 02:42:20 PM
What should I start this at?

It's NM copies of Walking Dead Weekly #1, 2, 3, & 4.  I'm selling them in a lot with bags and boards, of course.

I see the lowest copy of #1 going for $70 at Buy It Now. But then I've seen a completed listing of #1 on the low end at $35.99. #2 for about $20, and the other 2 for about $10.

I've never really sold this high priced of an item before and was looking for some input.

I was going to start it at $29.95 plus $4.95 shipping. How does that sound? Higher?

I would at least start it at the low end of the highest issue, $36.  I would probably start it at $55 for all four and see where it goes.  Your shipping price is reasonable.  I wouldn't change that.m.

If it doesn't sell you can always re-list for free at a lower starting point.

When it comes to stuff like that .... that has a decent sell point, another option is listing it for a pretty decent price (for you) under "But It Now", let it ride for a month, but include the option to take "best offer".

That is what I have done for those DVD comic collections. Things that are too costly, there is no way I would risk taking my low auction starting price for, I use that. (As rare as that is)

Of course what Jeff said is also more than fine.  :)

BTW, if a Hero Realm member wins this auction, free shipping as usual for that member. Just let me know who you are via message through eBay before paying for it, and I'll send you a new invoice.

Ends next Sunday. 7:01 PM Pacific Time.

This is the latest bidder to bid on my item:

0 feedback, and started an account today. That really scares me.

BTW, this ends tonight at 7 pm Pacific.
