£100, try to put a highish postage amount on it, to reduce the final fee :thumbsup:

it only goes by what the item sells for not including the postage, i wouldn't suggest putting a much higher than needed postage on it as you would end up with negative feedback ....

Just don't go over board with the postage, add about an extra £1 or £2 etc...

Putting too high a postage on in place of the sales price can get a listing removed my ebay.

Plus the buyer will more liekly put give a negetive or neutral feedback.

But as DLM says Ebay fees like only be charged on the sale amount (£100)

OK guys, thanks for your help.

These fees are ridiculous. I can buy something in at £113.72, but to break even I have to start at £124.48!!!

Total Fees Ebay and Paypal £10.76!!!

I see what you're saying, but half of that is Paypal! Which i am forced to accept, when there are many other ways or trading without being charged extortionate fees, Bank Transfers, Bankers Drafts, Cheques.

Totally, but many casual buyers prefer paypal as it is marketed to them as safe etc.
