Insertion fees were always a smaller part of the fees. Over they last year, the announced a couple of 5p decreases. In the small print, final value fees increased over 200% to approx 10%. Then there are the massive paypal fees on top.

Ebay has also sold out to big business, advertising companies OUTSIDE Ebay, taking customers from its loyal users.

A company with no morals, or loyalty and motivated by greed, They now also seem happy for people to bid and not buy and ignore complaints, not to mention Paypal taking money from you if a buyer requests it, meaning you have no goods and no money.

Now thats off my chest, i will still vote hot, as you have found a deal.

Gah, I posted 58 items on Sunday. Damn

Good deal but be aware you now have to offer free postage on many items so make sure your starting price will cover the postage or you may still end up out of pocket on the deal. Many Ebay newbies are being caught out.

If there was a decent alternative I would definately not sell on Ebay. Dont even get me started on some of their descrimate policys towards sellers :x

That said its s good opportunity to list items with cost if they dont sell :thumbsup:

This is a good deal but personally I'm sick of eBay. It's so unfair towards sellers and the fees are out of control IMO. I got sick of being ripped off as a seller, losing stock AND being forced to refund the people who were clearly taking the ****, losing the ability to post negative feedback, being FORCED to offer free p&p etc etc. It's just a horrible place to do business now. Can anyone suggest a good alternative?.

Why take the choice away from sellrs? Exactly what I mean about policy towards sellers :x:x:x

Bend over take it up the ....... and we are going to charge you twice as much for the privalege

Since when has this post been remotely hot? should be ice cold, ebay are continually taking advantage of Joe Bloggs by charging massively huge fees, if I ever post on ebay its as a last resort.

It's a good deal, I have a load of stuff to put on there at the mo'.

Here's hoping they lower their final value fees one day too:whistling:


Yea! the final vaues are quite rediculous tbh...
I remember once, when I actually stopped to see how much they were taking out... Shocked as hell I was.

Another Ebay disgrace - free postage means you have to hope the final price is higher, or you lose out big. If the final value fee IS higher - Ebay make more profit, as they only used to make profit on postage from Paypal.

List an item and it finishes at say £1.99. If the postage is £1.49, and you cannot recoup this, just what is the point?

whats this about most items need free p&p now? i sold a 2 things for the first time, last motnh and was allowed to post p&p charges (one was a £35 BIN and other £110 aunction)

They are introducing it by stealth as usual, going through categories and changing it.

I listed an item at £7.99 and £1.59 postage last month. It didn't sell, so i relisted it, and was shocked to find i could not charge postage this time. I emailed them and they confirmed its gradual introduction.

There is a way round it - list in the wrong category. It will still show in the search. But you should not have to, and eventually it will reach all categories anyway.

They recently made it so that items such as video game, dvds, smaller items etc have to be offered as free p&p. It doesn't apply to all items but most now have to be listed as free postage. Reason being eBay never used to make money on the separate postage charge which was at the sellers discretion. It's a horrible system which now allows eBay (and Paypal) to take a chunk of your money which is supposed to go towards postal costs.

And get your item removed by Ebay as this is against their rules. Do it 2 or 3 times and you'll lose your account...great eh :whistling:

No, because they were allowed to drive QXL out of town, and then they had a monopoly to abuse.

Wheres the monopolies and mergers commission when you need them?

The sad truth is that there aren't any real alternatives, not with any where near the same level of audience as this site.

Bearing that in mind, it was originally designed as a site in America to offload old crap and make a few quid and it has been exploited since the launch of international sites by large businesses using it as their main online outlet (for example Cash Convertors) and people who simply want to make money out of nothing or rip others off on items like concert tickets and must-have toys or gadgets at christmas time.

Ebay themselves have been the victims of exploitation to some extent, but they have loved it and are now thriving it. They may have been responsible, along with Amazon, for propping up the Royal Mail's revenue over the course of the last few years, however like many I still await the day when a real contender comes along and they crash and burn. It couldn't happen to a more deserving bunch of greedy animals.

Disagree, for example I sold a book the other day which is meant to have postage limited to £2.50 I think. This book was massive and very heavy so I was well within my right to choose that option. If the option wasn't to get used it wouldn't be there

This banner should be printed out in HUGE size (about 100 foot square) attached the Big Ben and then set on fire just so the whole of the world realises how most people feel about Ebay and their complete rip off overinflated fee structure.

I have to laugh when they say its 'FREE TO LIST' - which yeah is BRILLIANT if your item doesn sell...but as the whole point of selling an item it to (would you believe) SELL IT, then as soon as it is you are hit with a SHOCKING fee which has just gone through the room these past years.....i wouldnt mind the fee increase so much if it wasnt for the fact that every time they put the fees up they send announcements out to say they are REDUCING fees !!!! - its the insulting way they think everyone is too STUPID to see through their pathetic two faced emails!!!

haha of course....it goes with the territory.

Its an automatic reaction now....whenever i see an email from Ebay say "WE HAVE IMPROVED THINGS"...they mean "WE HAVE MADE THINGS WORSE"

Whenever they say "ITS NOW CHEAPER TO LIST" it automatically means "WE HAVE INCREASED THE FINAL VALUE FEE BY TRIPLE WHAT WE ARE SAVING YOU IN THE LISTING FEE"

99% of people can see right thru Ebay....they are a disgusting company with no morals and poor customer service

Agreed, the EU needs to get it's finger out of it's beuracractic **** and do something about Ebay.

Nobody gives a toss what shape bananas are, why not work to punish a multi-national corporation which openly rips off your citizens and flouts competition laws like they don't exist instead?

It's a reasonable final value fee compared to traditional auction houses.

Ebay sold out about 2001, I used to make a fair bit of wedge back then with a sellers market.

Fee's have more than quadrupled, they've introduced no postage charging (games, dvd;s and soon cd's) and can any believe paypal used to be free...oh thats right, ebay bought them lol
