Your welcome and Good Luck! :thumbsup:

It would be much better if ebay just has a 10p Listing fee

It makes so much anyway for the final fee it charges

Thanks for the pointer Muhammad

cheers i will be listing a few things

sweet, heated!

Thanx brother Muhammad!
Ebay is a bit expensive to sell stuff...but gr8 for buying!!

another Ebay con!!!:roll:

This is for AUCTION STYLE LISTINGS only.....and as 90% of people start their auctions at 99p anyway, they are only saving 5p per listing!!!

Its about time someone came up with a viable alternative to Ebay cos they are really starting to take the p*ss with things now.

Banned

It'd take someone the size of google to challenge 'em.

Not really that great since B-I-N listings are not included, but still voted "warm"

got a few DVDs to sell off so will save 5p on each , all adds up

^ No no, it's cheaper to list DVDs any way...I think it's only 5p (if started at 99p) at all times, but they take more in the final value fees. In my opinion you'd be better off getting them listed either before or after Thursday, because ebay will be flooded with stuff on that day & you'll only save yourself a matter of pennies.

Was hoping for a cheap BIN listing day also, but still good for those who it's useful for (err...stating the obvious much? lol).

[SIZE=2]Looked like a good deal, I was about to embark on selling a few items for the first time but thanx to the advice here, I will wait until later next week. [/SIZE]

If you put an item on at 9pm it will finish at 9pm in either 1,3,5,7 or 10 days depending on how long you list it for.

If you're desperate to have items finishing at specific times you can use Steve's answer AND a paid for option (6p) to have your item start at a specific time (therefore finishing at the same time).
Useful if you're really that desperate for specific end times but aren't able to list at the corresponding start time.

Check on the "Selling Format" page.....
Under the Starting or Buy It Now price you have options for quantity, charity contributions, duration, private listing & finally the option to "Start listing immediately" or (for 6p) "Schedule start time (£0.06)"...click this & it will give you the option of when you want you item to start.
(PM if you have any further probs)

will do, thanks a lot man :-D :-D

I don't really understand why people are complaining about the listing fees. I know Ebay gross a lot of money for essentially providing an online template but it generally makes better financial sense and requires less effort to list on ebay than it does to sell at a car boot sale or an auction house, which often get upwards of 20% commission.

I think people are conflating Ebay listing fees and Paypal commission fees.Ebay doesn't require you to use Paypal so don't ; this will avoid paypal commission fees;-)

Ebay doesn't require you to use paypal, but it makes it pretty damn hard for you not to lol

Exactly. And now the f****** have discontinued buyer protection UNLESS you pay by paypal its a pretty sewn up market.

If this included BIN's it would be good, as is, waste of 10p.

It's just as easy to list an item on eBay with or without Paypal

...but whether potential buyers are prepared to bid on an item that doesn't offer paypal (and less bidders usually means a lower final selling price) is another thing entirely. But you can't blame eBay for introducing a system that people are happy to use. Some sellers preferred to use nochex, but that has more or less died a death when they introduced a standing charge if you didn't use the account - at least there is no charge with paypal if you don't use it!

If you really think Paypal is a burden then there is a little known rule that says you are allowed to offer a discount for payment types other than paypal - a kind of surcharge for paypal in reverse if you like. However you must do it the discount route, as surcharges are not permitted.

As a buyer you shouldn't be paying any paypal fees :?

You can always ask the seller to see if they will be prepared to offer a discount for payment by alternative means as it means no paypal fees for them and no chance of having the money pulled back off them by unscrupulous buyers/thieves - some sellers will offer this, others are happy to give the money to paypal

Who said I was a buyer? I accept cheques and bank transfer. Still people send me CASH and PO's through the post even though I STRICTLY state on my invoices that neither are acceptable due to the risk of loss. Ebayers are just plain wierd. I won't accept paypal thanks to the ripoff charges/risk of dodgy chargebacks/time it takes for me to actually have the funds IN HAND. Thats what buyers don't understand, even though they pay and its instantly in your account its NOT in your bank so you can only spend it at places that accept paypal. Bloody useless. Google Checkout is the exact opposite, you get paid, google transfer the amount to your bank. Simple and usable.

As it stands though, unless you accept paypal you look suspicious and 'risky' thanks to ebays 'improved' buyer protection plan. Fwiw i've got an average DSR for 4.9+, so hopefully that WILL make buyers decide to buy from me:)

[SIZE=2]I don't quite follow the logic here. You say you don't accept cash (which you can spend the moment you receive it) nor POs which can be cashed instantly at a Post Office (providing they are not crossed.) As a seller, I don't care how risky it is for the buyer - until the money is in my hand/account, the goods are not dispatched.[/SIZE]

[SIZE=2]But you do accept cheques which usually take 4 working days to clear after you've actually banked them.:? [/SIZE]


[SIZE=2]So why is it a problem with Paypal that either allows you to spend the money the moment its received with another paypal user (there's loads of people on ebay that accept paypal, as well as quite a few other outlets that also accept it) or you can transfer funds to your bank account without leaving your computer. Ok that may take 9 days, but by the time you add the other delays with cheques (post, banking it, etc), there really probably is only a day or so difference.[/SIZE]

[SIZE=2]Now the reason I thought you were an ebay buyer was that you were going on about eBay buyer protection. That doesn't protect you as a seller! ... and you clearly believe your previous good standing as a seller means others won't care (not sure I agree with this as one of the reasons I like paypal is I win, I pay with paypal and I expect the seller to post promptly, I've even had some items delivered the next morning - maybe I'm just impatient but I know when I pay by cheque it'll be a good week before they even think about dispatching the goods bearing in mind I need to post the cheque, it needs to arrive at the seller, the seller must bank it, and then wait 4 days for it to clear and then hopefully they'll remember to check it has so that they can consider posting my item)[/SIZE]

[SIZE=2]I have no data to support the fact, but I'm sure I'm not alone in preferring paypal (and you even hint that this is also the case for buyers for various reasons be it security or whatever) and so am happy to accept the paypal charge as I feel certain my auction items usually reach a level at least 3.4% higher than they would if I didn't offer paypal. Btw, one of the reasons some buyers like paypal is that they can buy with their credit card. 3.4% +20p (less for higher amounts) is actually not a bad rate for accepting credit card transactions.[/SIZE]


[SIZE=2]Now you obviously don't agree that your final sale figures are affected by not offering paypal (or maybe you do as you do seem to have some reservations about not offering paypal) and that 3.4% is too high a price to pay. (yet at the same time, you don't want to benefit from at least a 33% saving in your basic listing fee)[/SIZE]


[SIZE=2]Or is this just a matter or principle thing for you. Down with the capitalist state, the huge profit making organisations and all that! If so, that is quite strange really for someone who is trying to make a quick profit on eBay, don't you think?[/SIZE]

Banks in the United Kingdom Five to Seven Working Days
Free for £50.00 GBP or more, £0.25 GBP for £49.99 GBP or less

Banks in the US Three to Four Working Days
Free for banks in the US

So as well as paying ebay fees AND paypal fees I also have to pay to actually get the money into my bank account? Thanks but no thanks.

You make a lot of wrong assumptions as to my motivations, I have no problem getting what I want for what I sell and as for 'making a quick profit on ebay', NO i'm not a powerseller.

It can be more difficult to sell with no PP but I see it as a matter of balance. In my case I rarely sell items that will gross over £32 inc p&p. With paypal I would need to charge extra for a trackable postage method* and most likely (as most people do) hide an extra charge to cover the PP fees. Therefore by not accepting PP I can give true cost on postage and attract more bidders as we all know how much buyers hate postage charges:-D

*NOT for the buyers benefit, just to protect myself in case the buyer decides to claim INR as quite a few buyers seem to do according to the Ebay help boards......

Yes, but then it costs 6p to schedule it....makes the savings even less than they already were!
