    How are Sales?
    Traffic is high but the sales are low for me.

    They are cooling off compared to earlier in December but traffic is still strong. January usually is sometimes on par with December so things will probably be kinda slow for the next week and then start to pickup closer to the end of December.

    Ground shipping is over for most of my merchants but today is still great at CJ. Many sales and last minute big spenders are showing up. I like it.

    This month is the best month for me so far. I haven't seen the sign of slow down yet.

    I haven't seen any sign of things letting up yet, although I expect it to happen soon. Today is the last day for 2nd Day Shipping for most merchants .

    Monday and Tuesday were surprisingly strong for me.

    Also, my conversion ratio this month for most merchants has been about 50% higher than usual (which is typical for December).

    I have seen a slow down today so far but it has been very good, better than last year for Nov & Dec.

    One thing I have noticed is a lot more buying but of lower priced items.

    Market reports have said discount retailers like Walmart have been doing better this year than high end retailers. Online retailing seems to be having the same trend this year.

    So I am expecting another good January next month much like last January as I think a lot of people holding back spending will let loose in January on bigger ticket items on sale.

    It's been a great month here but things have started to let up just a bit this past day or two. I've never had such a large assortment sales from so many different merchants. This has given me quite a bit of insight into what merchants convert better than others and what items convert for these merchants. Can't wait to see what 2006 brings!

    Had a great month, starting to slow down just a bit as expected. January will be great when people spend the cash they got for Christmas or buy themselves anything they didn't get off their Christmas lists

    mine stopped yesterday noontime. but what's funny about that is that i had a great morning yesterday then everything stopped. plus, what people were buying were not christmas stuff. so i blame this one on cj. i guess it's my turn again to be on the wrong server.

    darn, even amazon is rocking, but not cj.

    time to make linkshare links.

    Mine are still pouring in and that surprises me, figured they would flatten out by now.

    I finally saw a slowdown on Thursday and Friday, almost down to normal non-holiday levels. I expect today and tomorrow to be a little lower, then for things to pick back up on Monday. Things should continue to be somewhat higher than "normal" until the January credit card bills start arriving.

    my amazon sales are good, but orders have slowed down to the same as the other places. I guess they're just shipping the things people ordered a while ago.

    I had some great sales on the 23rd, but they pretty much dropped off for the 24th and the 25th. Traffic is up quite a bit today and I hope to see some nice sales this week.

    Down month for me. Most people are buying Christmas presents, so they aren't spending their money on Ebay crap like they should be.
