Aww don’t give up his new mommy is out there!

Auctions never do well for me. Have you tried a BIN? Some people just don’t want to deal with auctions. When I do a search, I only look at BINs. Could be worth trying.
I would totally do away with the plates since they don’t fit. A buyer may feel they are paying for something that doesn’t work.
Have you thought about getting an auction template? I know some won’t consider looking if the seller hasn’t invested in one.
It may sound like I’m being critical, but I’m only trying to help.
He should sell for $250 easily, if not more. School starting is a huge drain on the pocket book for most. Sales normally don’t pick back up until October. If you’re not in a financial crunch to sell, he may be worth putting aside.

Thank you I considered not using the plates and getting a template, but wasn’t sure how to use the template. When I resist I will do this thanks again​:heart_eyes::heart_eyes::heart_eyes::heart_eyes:

I agree a nice template will make the presentation much better. With the belly plate so small, it would be better to omit it.

If you need help, I would be happy to walk you through it. Once you have it set up, I just hit the “sell similar” button and just replace pics and details info. I have two templates…one for the girls and one for the boys.

He has been there now for 15 days two separate times I guess it’s only fair I let the action end, if he doesn’t sell I will get a template and change it​:heart_eyes::heart_eyes::heart_eyes:

It would be a shame if he sold for only $99. :disappointed:

My daughter does my templates for me. I’m too computer challenged.

Don’t give up! It literally took my Corbin about 2 months to sell and he was listed on eBay and Reborns.com.

I would not show the photos of the bits. I would only show him dressed and maybe the belly or bit of a bottom showing. I would never show a photo that does not at least try to make the doll look like a real baby. So, get a template, some new photos, and then list as a BIN (you can do best offer accepted), and then wait. Some dolls take a long time to sell; I had one sitting there for about a year. Others are gone withing hours of being listed.

Sorry you had problems, Nikki. It should be as easy as copy and paste. I had to have the template maker walk me through it so I understand the frustration doing it the first time. I am not computer savvy.

Don’t give up, nothing is selling right now. Probably won’t start up again till mid Sept. early Oct. I got a template on eBay by Lynn, and she gives great instructions on how to use it so that even an old computer illiterate like me can use it. :wink:

Diane, how can I contact her?

I just go to eBay and type in templates in the search box.
