Auction Stores Do EBay Selling for You

Stores Are Convenient but Costly (chart)

As expected, we made the most money from the pair of items we sold ourselves, but we also spent 8 hours on our auctions as opposed to 15 minutes at each drop-off store. AuctionDrop was most efficient, while Sellers' Market yielded the best return. (Because we auctioned new items, we ended up buying high and selling low; you'll probably get a better return on items you already own.)
