    Listings that make $$ for EBAY & us

    As longtime ebay sellers, my wife and I were always very busy putting up listings that only lasted a week and a few months ago ebay gave us monthly listings! We have a much better sales percentage. More important to EBAY; their "take" of our sales increased to about 11% and their paypal "take" is about 3%. Now they gobble up about 14% of our sale and 3% of the postage. It is alright with us as sellers because our sales volume is way up and we profit more as well as EBAY. Now, I'm an oldtimer at the market as well and my hobby is trading. 2 weeks ago I sold a bunch of naked puts on EBAY with a $25 strike for Oct. for $1.36 because I think their upcoming earnings report at the end of the month will have a nice surprise because of their "monthly listings" tactic. Insiders will know beforehand and will drive up the price with their "leaks". (As well as the fact that their "cash cow" paypal is doing better and better all the time.) Peace, Ed
