    A very simple spread sheet will work this out for you on a product by produce basis. Basically selling price minus cost of sales = margin! Don't forget all the %'s that ebay and Paypal, etc take as part of cost of sales. I would also use excel to work out month by month/product by product cash flow. If you fancy accounts package then MYOB and Quickbooks are fine, but I'd wait 'til, I knew my sales volumes and turnover were worth the cost/effort. There are also a few ebay management packages around, but I've never used them as jusr a casual seller.
