eBay‘s number of listings continues to hit all-new highs. It’s worth noting that the percentage of sold listings vs active listings has begun to decline.

Atomic Avenue: This marketplace is still struggling to reclaim the number of listings it had over 5 years ago.

Comic Collector Live: Membership is up over 16% in the past year.

HipComic‘s number of listings have flatlined again. No major growth from last month.

Bonanza‘s number of listings have flatlined. No growth from last month.

Ebid‘s number of listings have exploded since we began listing our items there this month.
