I buy and sell on Half.com. I have sold around $300 worth of stuff. I find that there are definite lulls in buying activity -- I don't think I've sold anything there in months, but sometimes I'll make three sales in a day.

The two things you can do to help move your sales are:

1. Price your item below everyone else's. All my stuff is either in Like New of Very Good condition. Even though I underprice people who are in lower categories, I'd rather sell the item then worry about getting an extra buck or two -- and possibly never selling it at all.

2. Wrap your packages well and mail them promptly. Enclose a friendly note thanking the person for buying from you and remind them that if they had a good experience they should rate you. This contributes to a higher seller rating, which in turn gives people the confidence to buy from you.
