this has got to be a joke

so lets say you sell something, and it has to be a bargain to sell, what little profit you 'make' they 'take?' (plus a whole lot more $$'s besides?)

Which is why I stopped using ebay over a year ago. I refuse to give them my money like that. It's not worth selling there.Trex 550 V-BAR, Trex 700 V-BAR, N5-os55VBAR, TREX700E V-BAR /X9503

Man I buy on eBay here and there but haven't sold on there in years. I've only used PayPal. Those fees are ridiculous. They can pretty much kiss their butts goodbye because they're not going to have much in the way of a base of sellers for long at that rate.Regards, Brandon Bartolomucci; Team Synergy; Team Scorpion; & Team Bavarian Demon; AMA# L939231

Don't forget paypal (which is now owned by ebay) is now the only accepted method of payment... and as a seller you lose another 3% in the paypal transaction fees.

I haven't sold on ebay in a couple years; I bailed on them as soon as the fees went sky high and paypal became mandatory. For small margin items the new fee structures eat up all the potential profit.

For items with larger profit margins that cover the final value fees ebay is still a great place because of the amount of traffic and exposure.

I have been a long time supporter of ebay but even I have finally got to throw in the towel. They (and paypal) take too much from every sale. This is also reflected in their bottom line and their stock price.

I quit Ebay a couple years ago too. You would think with their high rates it would be a good opportunity for someone to start a new auction site.

They don't call it FeeBay for nothing!

For every $100.00 dollars you make on Ebay
you give them back $12.00 with all fees
included. Your net profit on a $100.00 sale
is $88.00

It's a buyers market for sure, the sellers only
lose money.

It's not how much money you made on Ebay it's
all about how much money you Lost.

Don't forget they do a great job of protecting your transactions. I personally have been helped by paypal and ebay. They have great customer service.

Try your local auction house. They charge a 10% sellers and a 10% buyers fee.

Remember, they are a business and it's not free. They offer buyers protection where RR and Craiglist offers nothing.

These things come at a cost and it also pays peoples salaries.

We can't be that cheap can we? So cheap as to deny companies from making a profit to pay our fellow Americans?

No doubt you people are Walmart shoppers LOL

Wait till you send money to a crooked ebay and see how much they help. If the guy cleans out his account, then you get NOTHING back. The crook gets a mark against his user name or it gets deleated but then he is right back under a false name.
Which is worse, ignorance or apathy? I don't know and I don't care!
