    I have a ton of stuff to sell, mainly TFs, but just don't have the time to take pics, list, keep track of payments, etc.

    Has anyone here ever use a service that lists your stuff on ebay?

    Basically like what that woman did in 40 year Old Virgin for those who saw that movie.

    I've not used it, but I hear they take a huge enough chunk that it's basically not worthwhile. I mean... eBay fees are already crazy, but than you pay for the extra services on top of that and I've heard that unless you're selling a high value item it's not really worth it.

    You will loose close to 30 percent of your profit, ebay, paypal and the money lister gets paid

    I'd advise against using their services unless all else fails. eBay and Paypal already take a grip from regular listings, and by using their service, you'd probably be better off donating your collection.

    If you have the time, you would probably be better served renting table space at a mall or toy show for a weekend.

    Since it looks like you're in NYC I'd just craigslist everything. You have a huge audience there.

    Or I'd sell one at a time on eBay. Listing is pretty streamlined now and only takes about 10 min. You can ship right through paypal and have the USPS pick up the package right at your door.
