Its only the insertion fees that are dropped - but with the charges they changed recently - you are paying far more even with the discount than you were before they made the changes.

Ebay has a monopoly position which it abuses.

Also - take your money out of Paypal each time is excedes 50 quid (if that is still the minimum they dont charge for) - as Paypal have decided 18 months ago to keep just under 200 quid Quidco put into my Paypal account (until I can produce my 'ID card').

Paypal are now based in Luxembourg.

totally agree with what ibiza has said, but its a deal and just wanted to point it out to you folks who were thinking of having a clearout

Greedy ebay were recently fined £31.6m for selling fake goods.

Should have been more, the amount they make on bootlegs is outrageous, heck there are even power sellers who sell counterfeit and copyright material and ebay rarely take any action on those.

No they were not. They were ordered to pay that sum for allowing fake goods to be sold. There is a difference.

I think he meant that Ebay themselves didn't sell the goods, they allowed them to be sold on their site.

It was a fine, just because the money has to be paid to the copyright owners does not mean it was not a fine...

good to know, thanks.

Hi

Re: Greedy ebay were recently fined £31.6m for selling fake goods.

The OFT should also come down on them and make them have proper Customer Care contact phone lines.

we all call ebay but its the best way for us to sell items we would normally give / throw (in a lot of cases) for a charge which is cheaper than renting a shop - carbooting -

[color=red][size=5]Do not list "Buy It Now" items early on the 8th![/size][/color] Leave it until the evening or pay 6p extra and have it scheduled later that day. This should remove the chance of buyers buying on the 8th and sending payment on that day as well. Here's why it's important that they don't pay you via Paypal until the day after...

This will make for some interesting discussion, I posted this back in the last thread when eBay had a cheap listing day and now the following is more relevant than ever...

Received an email from Paypal on 13th June 2008 with the following extract..

Paypal

[size=3]Effective from 9 July 2008[/size], PayPal will change its fee structure to make it more attractive for our UK customers to send personal payments. We are pleased to announce that:

1) PayPal will not charge a recipient (regardless of their account type) of a PayPal payment if that payment was funded by the sender's bank account or PayPal balance and it is designated a Personal Payment

2) PayPal will apply a fee for payments received for Personal Payments or Commercial Payments if such a payment is funded by a credit or debit card, however for Personal Payments funded by a card, the sender will have the option of paying the fees for that payment

3) Also, PayPal will no longer require its customers to upgrade from a Personal Account to a Premier or Business Account once it has received a total of £250

For 1) Thank god the payment options default to bank funded and so all those that rush through the Paypal checkout will end up sending money that doesn't get taxed to hell and back once the seller receives it! No more losing 3.4% + 20p of the incoming money :thumbsup:

For 2) where it says the sender has the option of paying the fees that the receipient would normally incur; I can't really see anyone wishing to voluntarily pay 3.4% + 20p on top of what they're already paying. Ok, for low amounts of money that percentage might not be much but once you get into the hundreds that percentage works out to be a sizeable amount of extra money. Nice try Paypal but no buyers are going to fall for this one :-D

Now, the important part. Do you go for the cheaper listing fee on the 8th, or wait a day and then not get charged fees on receiving money via Paypal? The answer is obvious, I hope :)

I list something on the 8th for 5p, it sells a week later on the 15th ~ Would accepting Paypal payment on the 15th (or later) for an auction listed on the 8th follow the old fee payment structure?

i would have thought so, still going to take advantage of the reduced listing fee,where else can we go to sell anyway as ebid looks like a ghostown compared to ebay.

ebay ending fees are expensive

Assuming what you list isn't "Buy It Now" which would remove the chance of a potential sale (and payment) on the 8th then yes, that would work :thumbsup:

Advertise here - its free - and the buyer calls you on a number that pays the fees for the ad - so your own number is not displayed.

http://www.adtrader.co.uk/

Ads can be sorted on distance - which means there is no 'lost in the post' excuse as from ebay.

Visit it now - its pretty good.

Ebay & Paypal - the worst 2 companies for customer support. Hope Ebay get more and more fines.

Erm Cuddy I got that Paypal E-mail too but noticed this at the bottom:

"Commercial Payment" means a payment which is not a Personal Payment (including, without limitation a payment associated with an eBay item and/or other goods or services).

"Personal Payment" means a payment made for the purpose of either your personal, family and/or household affairs.

...so eBay item purchases via PayPal are classed as 'commercial', hence 3.4% +20p still applies?!

I think the email was more about sending private payments to other persons in general, it's not about eBay. That's how it read to me, dunno maybe you could clarify, thnx!
#21
I would rather not pay the paypal/ebay fees but where else will we get the amount of money and exposure that ebay gives us when we sell our goods ? Simple answer nowhere and No i don't like paying the fees.
#22
Last time this offer was on, each time I tried to list a Auction with a Buy it now, it wanted to charge me £0.15 pence for some reason. It was listed in the 478 motherboard catergory. I ended up listing it once as Buy it Now and once as an auction which cost £0.10 which was cheaper. Anyone know why this could be?

I wouldn't of thought so, personally (although have no evidence to say either way).

PayPal is involved with the payments processing side of things; eBaY the selling of goods - despite them being under the same ownership, they are separate entities.

Following you hypothetical situation, you'd be charged the 5p listing fee by eBaY (and then any relevant FVF's etc; at the end of sale (15th)) on the 8th, and then charged accordingly under the NEW PayPal structure, as the payment would be received on or after the 15th; which is post-9th July.

That's the logic I see, anyway.

Standard listing price for an auction in that category would probably of been 15p, thus that you encountered the fist time round of attempting to list.

The promotion usually means that you can't do dutch-auctions to qualify, and as far as I can tell, this is a similar situation for using 'two features', such as an auction with BIN attached; hence why it was trying to charge you the 15p; whereas listing two qualifying auctions (whatever the type) during the promotional period would mean a 5p charge for each, hence the 10p cumulative charge..

Does everyone have have to pay the paypal fees when recieving money from an ebay sell?. The reason I'm asking is I have sold three items over the last two weeks on ebay for the first time & cannot find anywhere on paypal w/site that shows what I will be charged at a later date. I have the basic account so am I eligible for the fees? any help would be good

Thanks!

EDIT... I found on paypal w/site only a charge applies IF a sell is by credit or debit card, Am i right on that guys?

An ebay payment does not come under a personal payment, does it?:?

if you only have the standard paypal account then you will not get charged, but you can only receive payments from people holding funds in their account, although i read somewhere with a standard account you can accept crdit/debit payments 3 times, but im not sure on that:?
