They might expect some trouble after the change to the feedback system, I don't think sellers are happy about after the 15th of May sellers will no-longer able to leave -ve feedback. That is fine in 99% of circumstances it will make sellers up their game, but their are a couple of twisted buyers out there. My friend had one buyer that left a negative last year that said: BAD - item took 19 hrs to arrive, I wanted it in 10 mins

(For an item to arrive within 10 mins is impossible!!!!!!, she posted same day they paid & it arrived next day) and she was really upset, as she had under 100 feedback, so it really affected her feedback score.

surely she could have this removed by ebay - ridiculous!!

i didnt put this up as a deal - i put in misc were i thought it should have been :thinking::thinking:

The fees ebay are charging to sell now is ridiculous, they take a nice % of what your item sells for too, ****ing *****s
#6
Myself and a mate worked it out that you will get charged 4 times if you sell via a certain route:

Charge #1 - Insertion Fees (not massive but all adds up)
Charge #2 - Final Value Fee (this one can be a killer!!)
Charge #3 - Paypal Fee (won't let you list unless you add Paypal)
Charge #4 - Values under £50 are charge 25p if you wish to withdraw from Paypal

Absolutely appalling amount of charges. Hope they go bust!!

I would rather sell my item on here or to some random on the street for a cheaper price than i couild get it on ebay. I dont even buy stuff from ebay any more. The fees they charge are just unreal

first off you have your listing fee then your final selling price fee and THEN paypal fees. They even charge to upload pictures? how can imageshack do it for free and yet ebay, who make a considerable amount more than imageshack, feel it nescisarry to charge a fortune to host a 45kb file... I think i read somewhere that paypal has to be offered on every listing now, boosting ebays profits even more

I used to like ebay and use it all the time. Now it is just an expensive hole filled with useless **** from china and fakes

Sorry this is a cold deal for me - eBay have become rip-off merchants recently and sellers are leaving by the ship-load. What they don't tell you is that the final value fees and other charges have gone up and they are forcing you to use paypal which means they again take an extra cut from the sale and less money in your pocket.

Yep. Ebay really really need some stiff competition. Google, Stelios, even Branson, please get on the case!

It is simple to host your own on photobucket for example and not pay anything for extra photos. And you get decent size pictures then.
#12
I'm amazed an effective competitor to ebay hasn't appeared yet. The time is really right for one too.

Though I suppose Amazon marketplace has taken a bunch of Ebays sellers.
#13
Ive been selling on ebay for 5 years and in truth they have always been expensive to sell on, unfortunately you dont have alot of other options. Playtrade and amazon marketplace are also expensive, playtrade is shocking when it comes to charges.

yeah i know this, but others dont and this is why they do it. my point was that they are ripping people off
#15
Ebay can be pretty expensive with all the fees especially if you use paypal aswell!

If you are a regular seller like i have been in the past then you should really consider opening a shop, the listing price is cheaper, although it is like £6 or so a month but that isn't that bad if you regularly sell stuff.

Hosting your own pictures makes it cheaper also, plus you can choose the size you want the picture at! :-D

So Ebay are not charging you for including a picture of what you are selling in the listings of their auctions.

You really need to ask yourself - should this not have been included in the price you pay them already?

There are some other online aution web sites I've come across - ebid.net seems to be getting a good rep, though it seems at the moment there are more fixed price auctions but by the looks of it it is virtually free.

I guess there are a few others out there people may know about.

thanks for posting this deal.

if you had posted this same deal 5 years ago it would have been really hot.

back then ebay was a place where buyers and sellers turned to to beat high street prices.

now people are going back to the high street stores instead of ebay

ebays high high high high fees, appualing and poor customer service and a feedback system which is worthless has made people hate ebay and seek new places to buy and sell.
ebay will never be the same company agian

on first may 2008 their price shares fell nearly 4%

4% is a huge amount for a company like ebay, but they deserve it

maybe if they stopped paying sky news, bbc news and some newspaper for publicity headlines then thier share prices would be even lower

classic example for a news story i read on ebay went along the lines of:
grandma for sale on ebay

im sure PR bosses at ebay have something to do with this.

but basically ebay is run by people with bananas in the wrong places

and i sure hope another auction site takes over soon

I agree that ebid is cheaper all round but the problem I'm finding as an occasional seller on ebid is that there aren't many buyers and I always list with very reasonable prices with no reserves.

I also agree that ebay have been taking the p with the final value fees and compulsory paypal.

If only people would start shopping & selling more on ebid, we ould teach ebay a real lesson! :p
