    Hope you guys can help me out here. I am selling Mockingjay Pins on ebay, but I am not making any sales. I set up two listings, one a Fixed Price Listing and the other an auction listing, with a link to my fixed price listing. Its not price, as there are others who are making sales charging more than I am. Here is a link to my listings so you can check them out:

    I can't post links yet. My ebay ID is icemantbi so you can check out the auctions I have and tell me what I am doing wrong.

    When did you post the listings ? And also is your ebay account brand new ? If you had posted them a few hours ago then i suggest you to wait for some time. It might take some time for the listings to appear on the search results.

    I posted them two days ago. My auction has 80 views and 8 watchers. I am not really concerned about the auction, because i know bids are coming on it. I am trying to figure out why my Fixed Price listing only has 29 views and no sales yet. There is a guy who already sold 5 of these pins today, and his price is even higher than mine.

    I have 102 feedback, with 100% positive rating.

    From my experience fixed price auctions usually get less attention. Try setting your auctin with a low starting bid and a reserve for the price you want to sell it for.

    If I just do auctions, its going to cost me more in the long run as I have to auction off each individually. Not to mention the fact I could get more for the pins with the fixed price format

    It sounds about right, especially as you only have a 102 feedback. Your delivery is quite a long time, any chance you can get this down to 1-2 day?

    This is what I do when I'm working out my sales:-
    Take a look at your competitors auctions - eg item 261045419453. They've sold 349 based on 4320 views, so 1 sale for every 12 views. That's way better than you, what can you do to get your sales rate that high? Don't forget, the main thing that gets people to click in the picture, you have a photo of the pin in its packet where as the example has a high quality close-up. Clearly, this is what people want to see.
