Thinking Selling Up - Any advice? Values? Suggestions welcome !

So, I am considering selling up either on here or on eBay.

I do have a minor disability that makes organising things a tad hard and I have never done anything like this on such a scale before, so I am a tad lost for ideas. So I hope I'm not breaking any rules here?

My list is below, and where I would like a quick and easy sale as I need the money fairly quick, I guess that might not be possible when considering the amount and perhaps the projected value I have placed on them.

So I thought a mass ebay cull would be best maybe?
If I sell on here I would of course be putting them up in the classifieds on a first come first server basis - or maybe a single bulk lot (£2500) or maybe even split lots.

I may even decide to keep the ones in italics !

(Please do not ask me to reserve you any titles in this thread or by PM - this isn’t a sales thread, its a discussion!)

You'll lose more money on eBay (and through PayPal) but you're guaranteed a sale. Maybe bundle up the common ones to try and get over £75 for one bundle so you don't lose 10%. Or sell them in the classifieds if you aren't desperate for the money. Also, some of your prices are way off.

Values are based on eBay sales - what people are willing to pay I guess. Which ones are out in your opinion ?
Thanks !
 
I thought the rule for classified on here was that you couldn't charge any more than the original retail price, has that changed ?
I also remember lengthy discussions about not being able to charge buyers for the postage it would cost to deliver the item.
In other words I would forget about selling on here if you want to make the kind of money you have written above unless the rules have totally changed and I am not aware of them.

Yes - good point !

I'm leaning towards various lots on eBay

And you can charge more than original RRP if title is over 6 months old, just depends on whether anyone is willing to pay it, which they often aren't.

You may get lucky with some but I think most of them are overly optimistic. A film can be the dog's proverbial's one day and a worthless piece of sh*t the next. It's odd. Good luck with the sales anyway.

A mate sold his sealed HMV Captain America on eBay a few months back and got £29 for it. Minus fees and you're looking at a few quid more than he paid for it. Had you have been selling up 9 months to a year ago, you may have made closer to the sort of money you were looking for but in this day and age, people aren't as interested in paying extortionate prices.

As said before, anything less than 6 months from release has to be sold for face value on here and some of your prices are over what the retailers are charging for stock.

I think the only way you'll make as quick a sale as you're after is by giving them away at bargain prices.

Best of luck!

Try the classifieds, I put up 170 odd on wednesday and have sold about 30 and gotten £450, haven't even sold that many rares as I'm keeping them.

Good luck though!
