While this sale took a lot longer than I had hopped I am very happy to report that it has finally been dragged across the line. I won’t outright say I will avoid weights in the future, I did make a 50% profit in month, but I would have preferred a much faster turn around time.
I tried several different approaches with listing the weights. I tried listing them altogether as one lot with an asking price of $200. I tried breaking them up into smaller lots with slightly higher rates, and I even tried once with a post selling the plates individually at $0.60/pound.
In the end it was a post with no pricing that said I was accepting offers of cash or trades that got the job the done. Within 24 hours of posting I had an offer to trade the entire lot for a brand new pair of $300 work boots, I did decline these, and a few hours later I connected with the eventual buyer who offered $150 cash.
I am now on the hunt for some new items to get this cash into so the flipping can continue on. Stay tuned!
