Jo is a good one to ask about that, she sells heaps of finished product on ebay. Remembering each country will be different as to what people buy, card packs are always a good hit I would say.

I think it would be more worth while to sell a pack rather than individually cause the listing fees and postage would make the cost of the card too high one would think. Perhaps a pack of 10? then there is one lot of postage. you could also try jewellery and markets for selling things. Do you know anyone who has a stall that you could test the market with your wares? This might work out better to pay a small commission to someone who already sells at a market if you wanted to go that way.

Hi Paula
I find some of my things sell great others take awhile.

I have a basic store think it's $20 a month and that allows me to list things for a fraction of the normal listing costs, so I can sell single cards etc.

Give it a go, you might find your things sell really quickly etc, check out the prices things list for in your country so you don't out price yourself and something I find I get more sales from is custom orders. eg card can be made in your choice of colours etc.

Hope this helps, have a 5 year in my ear while I'm trying to think and type so excuse me if it's not the most sensible post you've read

You are so welcome for the little I could give you in that area. As I haven't sold my finished art work due to my over possessiveness lol! I can tell you that as I do supplies on ebay as well as our website and the ebay side of it is very popular. I also have a store which is gr8 if you have enough stock to offer. It helps if you can offer multiples of items so they have the choice to buy more than 1 item and it doesn't finish the auction and cost you to list another as it will keep going. The fees can really add up but ebay certainly has the traffic. Again, it is always hard to say country to country as to what people will buy but all you can do is test what you have. I also like Jo have runs on things. Sometimes it is quiet and other times I can sell heaps!! People are always looking for unique gifts for special occasions too!
Happy quilling
