What We Flipped In April To Make $8,420


Thank you so much for spending your time with us! We would be so grateful if you could take a minute and leave us a review.

It’s time to talk numbers for April! We’re going to dive into what we sold to make $8,420 in sales. We’ll share the shipping costs, eBay fees, and of course the profits. The cool part about these numbers is that we only sold eight items to hit those sales.

Item # 1 – The Valve

I had no idea what this was when I first saw it, but I knew it was stainless steel and could sell for more than $10 alone just for scrap, so I went for it, looked it up, and got it listed.

Sales: $900
Fees: $118
Promoted listing Fees: $9
Shipping: $48
Cogs: $10
Profit: $715

Item #2 – Car Rear View System

We bought a car a couple of months back, and they gave me a mirror that was never installed. It was one of those rearview camera kit mirrors.

Sales: $115
Fees: $12
Shipping: $12
Cogs: $0
Profit: $91

Item #3 – The Airdyne

I was going to have to take this one apart to ship it and I realized the buyer was local. So we made the trip to the buyer and also used it as an opportunity to source another item. People told us this bike was not going to sell, but the buyer already had another one of these bikes and just liked them. That goes to show you never know what someone will want to buy.

Sales: $600
Fees: $77
Shipping: $0
Cogs: $75
Profit: $448

Item # 4 – The Water Valve

This was another item that I got for free. A buddy gave a bunch of them to me and this is my third or fourth one sold.

Sales: $400
Fees: $52
Shipping: $98
Cogs: $0
Profit: $250

Item # 5 – Tortilla Maker

We picked this item up on our road trip last year.

Sales: $1,100
Fees: $142
Promoted listings: $39
Shipping: $93
Cogs: $25
Profit: $801

Item #6 – Baby Scale

This was our second go-around on this bad boy. The first time we listed it we didn’t realize it couldn’t be converted to pounds. It was a kilogram-only scale. But once I listed it, it sold very quickly.

Sales: $145
Fees: $19
Shipping: $21
Cogs: $7
Profit: $98

Item #7 – Ballast

This was a GE Ballast. We were given a box of these for free, and they are selling well because everything is on backorder.

Sales: $160
Fees: $33
Shipping: $14
Cogs: $0
Profit: $113

Item # 8 – Jet Skis

This one was not sold on eBay, it was two jet skis sold to my nephew for $5,000. I had gotten these for free from a friend.

Sales: $5,000
Fees: $0
Shipping: $0
Cogs: $0
Profit: $5,000

That’s it, eight sales to generate $8,400 in sales and total profits of $7,516. If you take out the jet skis we’re at $2,516, but this is for just eight sales. Not a lot of time was invested into the flipping business this month to get that profit.

Robert Stephenson

I grew up in Central Florida and have lived here my whole life. I first got into buying and selling items when I was 16 years old, and have been hooked ever since. It has mostly been a hobby that makes some extra cash, but sometimes it serves as my main income as well. I don't plan on stopping any time soon. I find too many fun toys for my family (or myself), and just love the whole process.
