Nickel Salts-advice on sales


I am very hesitatingly considering selling nickel sulphate and nickel carbonate on ebay and the like because i have lots of both and i have no use for them

I know people have previously asked for advice concerning selling chems and i have read much of the posts regarding this.

i only wish to sell the salts until they are done.

What quantities would be popular do you think and i was going to go for pricing at or around 50% of current sellers (of which there seem to be very few), do people think this a decent strategy?

I am thinking $10/100g???

Cheers!

I can buy a pound for 15 dollars on ebay, you might consider going lower.
I would suggest 5 dollars for 100 grams
Of course, the quality of the salts should be kept in mind too.

What is this strange pound you speak of? Is it something you hit with a hammer?

haha Just kidding.

i could only find one supplier of NiSulphate on ebay, selling at $25/100g, but the i am super ebay inept. I think the basic carbonate, for electroplating might be less expensive but with all its waters of hydration i think its net weight of ni is around 10% of actual weight. The spot price for the metal is around $18/kg so that makes the price you quote sensible.

God i hate selling, ill just wait until someone is really unpleasant to me and ill fertilise their property with the 100kgs, hahha, man that woukld be one expensive cleanup here in australia!!!

reclaiming the nickel and simply scrapping it is equally arduous, as it does not respond well to electrowhinning, as far as i have read and doing this to 150Kgs is likely not trivial...

What I had found was carbonate, I didn’t get a look at the sulfate. What you could do is sell the two for separate prices, but that can be a pain in the ass.
I’m sorry, I hate US customary as well!
