i'm selling on their right now. most i've sold is around $100 or so at once. they've made some changes since i last sold on there though, like honest shipping prices.

if u don't have a clue what to start your item off at, check for other like items and get a feel for asking price.

i'm not an ebay power seller in the least but if you need help, pm me and i will do my best to help.

Older games that aren't classics will not sell for more than $5. You won't get more than $0.99 for most games. Great place to buy.

Its all about demand. Lots of people want to get rid of things, but they wont turn too much coin unless its a product people want. Like nexus said, you are likely looking at getting a buck for games if they are non popular games. 20 bucks is highly unlikely per game. It might be smart to bundle crap games with a good one if you want to unload all of them. But generally, games dont turn too much profit. Its possible to turn profit on ebay, i do but not at a big rate, as long as you sell something people want.

Do some research and see what the going rate for your games are on ebay. The best you can do is see whats selling and go with that. Check if game bundles are selling well. Also, buyers take into account your rep and how many items you have sold. If you have no reputation or selling reputation, then I would start off by selling the crappier games you dont want at cheap prices and get some good feedback. The better your rep, the better your chances are at selling your items and it will also improve how high the bids get
