DON’T SWEAT THE PRICE STICKERS
If the thought of putting a little price sticker on each and every thing you want to sell sounds exhausting, ‘save yourself gobs of time and skip it’, says Hammond. Instead, ask people how much they’d like to pay. (A good rule of thumb for what you might get for most items: 10% to 20% of what you paid.) That short cut could prevent you from underpricing items. ‘You want to get rid of that blouse or that book, so you might mark it at R20, while a buyer who wants it would be willing to pay R50,’ she says.
