I think the final fees might be a killer

how much is it to start an auction at 99p normally?

Ebay have got too damn greedy.

5.25% jump to 10%.

There's such a thing as taking the p!ss out of your customers.

Strange, there's no mention of it on their site. I'll test it tomorrow though as it'll be handy to list my 700-odd books! I agree ebay are very greedy with their new high fees plus forcing you to accept paypal (meaning more fees) but there's no where else really on the net.

its only free if you list at 99p, start it at £1 its 15p. list 100 items then thats a £15 saving.
If you don't like the other fees you don't have to sell on there - but if you do this is a saving.

so people pay 15p to start auction at £1 rather than start at 99p for nothing LOL

Does that included 2 days of not refunding the buyer for something they break a couple of weeks after getting it but claim it was doa for a full refund?

Plus, if anyone's wondering just how much they save/if they're better off listing it on a 'free listing' promo, then they can use the eBaY fee calculator here..

The 10% final value fee is extortionate!! When i started selling years ago, it was only around 2.3%....I sold some items last week and was charged nearly £48!! in fees then the paypal fees on top of that!! A case of 'they are hooked now, so lets hike up the fees, daft buggas will still pay cos we got them where we want them'
At least there is some saving for the insertions fees as sometimes these come in at over £1 each depending on the start price...so there will be a saving for some people. As they say 'every little helps'....

i think the main point to this is that you can list your item this weekend without the risk of it costing anything if it DOESNT sell. thats the bugbear for me, when nobody bids and yet it still costs you.
heat addded for this, thanks

Indeed,you can list at any start price and if it doesn't sell it's no biggy.

Handy if you got some stuff to sell and want to start on a resonable price say £20 ,will save you about 50p. Some cashback sites will pay you back 40% of ebay fees if you are the winning bidder.

No! Any amount above 99p up to £4.99. From £5 listing fee increases even more. That's were you save with this free listing offer. You start with the minimum price you would accept for your item and if you don't sell you have lost nothing.

However, on those free listing days, you will find a lot of c***p for high starting prices. As a buyer I'd stay away from ebay for this week (and many people do). The only reason ebay is doing those promotions is to get the statistical listing figures up (they influence the share prices).

What a coincidence, my local prostitutes are offering the same deal on those days.

hot from me?


Don't ask ME m8.
Don't you know?

That's the reason I don't use ebay anymore.
ebay get 10% of the final sale price & I'm pretty sure PayPal (ebay) take 5%.

Hot for me... Like someone else mentioned, start at the minumum price you want to sell - if it doesn't sell you pay nothing. Could save a few pounds for someone having a big clear out.

dont be fooled
Better to list with Buy it now with best offer

I sold an LCD panel from a laptop for a friend 6 months ago, ending up costing about £15 in fees. I understand it's an auction and they take a fee, but paypal also taking a fee just bumps up the cost of selling on ebay too much. I only ever use ebay for buying stuff. It would be a good way to sell some of my guitar collection but the fees would kill me, not literally of course :P

eBay make so much money from your final fees!!

gives you a bit of a saving if selling on ebay i have used :stuff for sale: few time,s now and sold quite bit of stuff Last thing listed on ebay sold on stuff for sale first so only had listing fee to pay.I agree ebay is getting greedy now
