Construct a LEGO brick model of one of the world's most famous palaces. Located in the heart of London, Buckingham Palace has housed Britain's sovereigns since 1837, when it became the official residence of Queen Victoria, just three weeks after her accession to the throne. The building has since played host to state visits, investitures and private audiences, and in 2015 opened its doors to the general public, offering state room tours. This detailed LEGO model focuses on the palace's monumental, neoclassical facade-designed by architect Sir Aston Webb in 1913, and features the famous balcony, forecourt and palace gates. A section of the Mall including a red double-decker bus, black cab and the Victoria Memorial completes the model, capturing the essence of the magnificent palace and one of the world's most dynamic cities.

It's very expensive. I would need to charge 4,250,000 credits. I can do it in about 2-3 weeks. I'm still ordering things on credit. I need my bank account to catch up.

Well it's relative. One good trick to learn here on Listia, is if you sell e-Gift cards under the Other Stuff category, you can get like 2,000,000 credits for spending $25-35 on an Amazon Gift card...Check it out: https://www.listia.com/search/gift-cards?location_id=111&gin=1&sort=highprice

If you offer a bargain, say 2,200,000 credits for a $35-40 Amazon gift card, you won't have to wait long I think, someone will buy your listing. Then go on Amazon, buy an eGift card in that amount and send it to one your alternative non-Amazon Email addresses. Pull up that Email, get the code and then post it to the winner...Either that or ask for the winner's E-mail address and send it directly to them (ignore any exchanging E-mail warnings Listia posts, which I think are automatically generated I think to guard against selling stuff directly to someone without listing it on Listia).

Would you take 1.8 mil for this?

No. Most of the credits I get, I sell back to Listia. After GIN (10%) and credit selling fees (another 20%), I would make $47. This cost $49. My profit margin as it is, is slim.

I just saw it for $46.99 on eBay, so I brought the price down to 2,000,000. The listing on eBay won't last I suspect, so I'll have to raise my price again, so let me know if you want it at the price it is now.

yes, i know... it is $80 if i wanted to get 2,200,000 credits now... but if I was to sell 2,200,000 credits, i am guessing I get maybe $40... i know... I have over 2 million credits... but then, I meant if i did not have any credits now, it will cost me $80 to get this... thus... i am not good at selling and getting profit on listia... the way I do this, is... when i see cheap movies that i like in the store, i usually buy 2 copies, 1 for me, and 1 to list on listia... i do not have to worry if i lost money or made money... :D but... I am watching this... if i am still awake when this ends, i might bid on it... :) thank you for listing...

one last question (i think)... how do you do this? once this ends, you order online and get it shipped to winner direct from the source... or you bought this and you have it now? (by the way, disregard my last comment about waiting for it to end... i forgot this was a GIN)... he he... sorry...

Yeah, that's right, on this one I wait until someone buys it before ordering. There are some other of my listings in which I'm selling things I have like Christmas gifts I don't use and like you, duplicate things I have or I guess, bought specifically for Listia.

To find out what to charge on something, I multiply the price in dollars by 1.4 and then multiply that total by 27,500. After that, I add like 300,00 - 500,000 credits. If I have the item already and am trying to get rid of it, I don't add the extra credits...

I have the ability to sell credits back to Listia. They gave that ability to a select group of us as an experiment, but they are putting a new limitation for us as to how many credits we can sell at one time. For me that limits is 6,000,000 credits.

I bring up the selling back of credits to Listia because it explains why I use the 1.4 multiplication. So when someone buys a GIN, there is of course the 10% GIN fee that LIstia keeps. Also when I sell credits back to Listia, they take another 20%. So 2,200,000 credits X 0.9 X 0.8 = 1,584,000 credits that I can actually cash in and 1,584,000 credits divided by 27,500 = $57.60. On Amazon the lego palace is going for $49.73 + state tax that I have to pay which in MD is $2.98. So $57.60 - $49.73 - $2.98 = $4.98, which is my profit.

Basically I price my stuff to make only $2 - $20 even with the expensive gold coins I used to sell that I was putting out $400 for on some of the listings. I'm not at this point making a living from this :-|.
