    Do you see Amazon as becoming profitable? How long have you been on AZ?


      I absolutely see Merch by Amazon growing and from day 1 it has grown week by week and am hopeful and excited to continue to watch the upward trend.

    Thanks so much for sharing that. People usually only share the sales profits not including the expense . You must use excel to keep track of it? How long have you been selling on ebay ?


      Your welcome Nilly! I use Outright by Godaddy. I have been selling on eBay for 3 years

    Those are great numbers. Congrats on doing so well. Been reselling for 29 years and the last 15 full time and only do 10% to 25% of your gross sales.


      Thanks! I just sorta picked it up after hearing someone else talk about it!
