I'm hoping to start selling a fair number of games (100+) and wondering whether people felt it was better to sell all of them in one big auction, or to break it up into smaller more manageable auctions.

The one large one seems to make sense as people might be more inclined buying as they can combine shipping. But trying to pack and sell that many games might be difficult especially with my work hours.

The smaller auctions would be easier to manage but likely make less money as less shipping benefit would reduce interest.

Any other considerations I'm missing?

And a poll just cause.

You stated my thoughts already. One big auction is definitely the one I would like AS A BUYER. But you would have to be ok with doing a ton more work. I'd guess you would probably make more and sell more from a big auction than a bunch of little ones. There's plenty of people that won't bother buying just one game unless they are desperate or the price is amazing. Anyways, good luck!

I would do one big one, as you said people would like to combine shipping. However if you are worried about being able to ship them all in a timely manner then just make sure you are clear about that in the auction rules.

Shouldn't be an issue if you warn people ahead of time it might take you a bit of time to get everything out.
