Found 8th Jul 2008
Evening all.
I have loads of Doctor Who Marvel Comic Monthly from September 1980 all the way to April 1984 including Summer and Winter Specials.
I am about to list them on Ebay.
Do you think I should bundle them up into each separate year or sell the whole lot as a job lot?
Trying to do it this evening sometime - 5p listing day!
Thanks in advance.

I would try to do it together as it makes the bundle more open to everyone and then people can offer to buy seperate if the sale isn't going too well

i think u would get more money listing them seperatly

try specialist comic shops like The Forbidden Planet ...

Hiya Kippy. Thanks for that. I have had these for ages and I tried ringing round some comic shops last year, they didn't really show much interest. I'll probably get the same reaction on Ebay!!! :roll:

More money listing individually as people will always look for a discount for "buying bulk"..
(You can cover all your listings/Paypal fees within the P&P charges)

BUT more hassle both listing & sending out if you go that route.

Comic stores would be a watse of time as they've still gotta make their mark-up...even after getting mugged by Ebay you'd still be better off......

If you're looking at listing seperately then just load a load of "blanks" (right category, no title & put "description to follow"...price at £100 then edit price down & add details at your your convenience) onto your account tonight for 10 days & then you can take the time to check completed listings to work out the best price.....

Thanks Charlie. Why didn't I think of that (don't answer that!!). I think I might list them in batches of a year at a time. Have also got about 50 of the Target Dr Who books which I am going to list.
Of course, if I had been more organised I would have had all this ready to go when I found out about the 5p listing day last week!!! Instead of scrabbling about at nearly 10pm trying to get it done. :w00t:
Hey ho - still got my housework to do from last week as well!! :whistling:

Thanks all who replied. Rep given. :thumbsup:

Only thing to watch for is I'm not sure if you can change from a Buy-it-now listing to an auction & vice versa as part of the editing process so you need to decide that up front.....

good luck shibi din!

I've got loads of blank listings up there. If I remember rightly you can add a BIN to an auction listing, not sure about the other way round. I have listed them as auctions so I should be ok if I want to add BIN. Thanks C32.
