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

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

Comic Collector Live: Membership is up over 14% in the past year.

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

Bonanza‘s number of listings have fallen over 10% in the past year.

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