#802 I sold a health care goods and a book in “mercari”.
Finally I sold my stuff in “mercari”
Finally I sold my stuff in “mercari” which is an online buy & sell service.
The memorial first ever sold item was a health care goods. It is hard to describe what it is. It is a cylindrical tube, not very heavy, about 16 cm tall. It is made of hard rubber. You can put it on the floor and put your leg on top of it to massage your calf or thigh. And also other parts of your body.
I bought it for about 2000 yen 6 months ago. When I used it, on my arm, it felt quite painful so I gave up using it.
I sold it on mercari for 1500 yen, but I had to pay for shipping for 700 yen and mercari charged 10 % commission, so I only got 650 yen back. Of course I am not making money. But I was not going to use it anyway. Leaving it at home will only take up space in my house. At least now I get some money back and I hope someone else can make good use of it.
I also sold a book.
The same evening, I also sold a book to another customer. It was a book about investment. I finished it so I don’t need it anymore. Well, if you asked me what it is about, I would tell you that I forgot most of it already. But the truth is that I don’t think I will ever pick it up and read again. So it is a good idea to sell it.
I am very happy that I was able to sell 2 items in such a short time. I want to sell more, so I made more postings but so far I haven’t got any reply. I better learn how to improve my selling technique.
