Ebay fees are too high
Saturday, 20 February 2010 08:59

After selling a few unwanted things on ebay.co.uk the invoice arrived and I was shocked to see how much it had cost.

Ebay is now (Feb 2010) charging 10%, yes ten percent of the final value as their fee, plus the listing fees.

Some will say that is no more than conventional auctions, but it's a massive increase since the last selling done on ebay, by the time you add on the listing fees and PayPal fees to receive money you will find that you are paying ebay around 15% commission.

That is a lot of commission and fees.

The message is clear, think twice before you sell it on ebay, it is no longer the friendly low-cost way to sell those few unwanted items.
