I miss the days of the analytics we could sign up to receive via eBay.
Can't remember the company (Bobby would) but it was a phenomenal service.
Where your buyer came from, what search words they used, hours/minutes they stayed on your sales page, hours of day items were bought and more.

Now, that info was helpful.

This info/analytics not so much.
To be honest, I've never done MCF.
We used to have several sellers here who were into MCF big and tied it together with affiliate ads.
Those sellers not only used eBay but also their own websites.

You're on the right track with the stats you posted though.

Gimme a couple of days to get back into the swing and I'll do more research.

I'm pleased with what I have up on eBay and it's sales and would feel comfortable with using MCF if the cost justified.
You can and could double your sales (if not more) by using this service and I applaud that you are considering.

From what I hear it works smooth as silk.

I don't work hard enough on eBay or sell enough on eBay to justify the extra $.
Blinded by the big boys?
Zilch...Not me.

I like having my little corner of the ecommerce world and you're right, when it ends it ends.
Which for me looks like it will be coming spring of 2019 or after the holiday season of 2019.
I'm getting too old.

I've been outta town taking a break for the last week.
I'm pulling my bootstraps up and getting back into the swing of ecommerce.
And not with the biggest smile on my face.

It's nice to get away.
I'll have to check our cabinets and make sure.
Thanks for posting.

Ok, so I'm looking at using MCF for some eBay sales and potentially other places as well.

What are the characteristics of products that would provide a cost benefit over the cost of shipping myself. For example, almost everything I have in my inventory is under 1 pound and the cost to use MCF is consistently more expensive than if I shipped the inventory myself by at least $1 and in many cases more than $2.50. So I know that for those types of items, MCF does not make sense unless something is at a really high price point.

I just haven't figured out what type of products are good for MCF or some common characteristics that would make sense from a cost-benefit analysis. Any help would be appreciated.

My You Tube selection pretty much says it all.

I manage a FB business page for a friend. Here's a snippet of the analytics behind a post that I shared with the page's owner along with the comment "FB analytics aren't worth the paper they'd be written on."

The three main areas of the business world that I am an avid reader of is 1) stuff that has to do with the financial crisis of 2007-2009, 2) mergers and acquisitions, and 3) antitrust issues.

The WSJ noted that companies that could go public are choosing not to do so. In fact, there are thousands less publicly-traded companies today than there were 10 or even 20 years ago. Many companies choose not to go public because of the horrendous costs of regulatory compliance tied to the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 (SOX) and instead are grooming their companies to be bought out by behemoths such as Walmart, Amazon, Facebook, etc.

For those companies that don't play ball with "the big boys", they get decimated by the highly unethical (and most likely illegal) actions of the big boys. Look no further than Then, they are bought out by the big boys that decimated them for a fraction of what they were offered initially.

For those that are blinded by the allure of being rich and powerful, this is completely acceptable behavior. To the rest of us, this is why we hold many of these so-called big boys with such disdain.

I will use Amazon just as it uses me. When the party crashes (all good things must come to an end), I won't shed a tear for Amazon. I won't shed a tear for Facebook, Google, Netflix, or even Apple. They hosted the party. They can bear the cost of cleaning up the mess that follows after a raucous party.
