Found 1st Dec 2013
i had no idea this existed or for how long its been live. i used to use ecall website or something like that to work out my ebay fees and what id get in my pocket.
i came across this just now after a quick search on google.
easy tool, just fill in your prices and youll get a fee of how much you'll be charged for listing and selling the item.
do bare in mind that this doesnt include the paypal fee, which is about 5%.

hope it helps some, definitely helps me!
apologies if its been posted already, the search feature on hukd is terrible! lol

useful, thanks

Are you watching me? I was only using this for the first time earlier oO

ebay fees charge what the h**** they like
but heat 4 deal

Ebay + Paypal will take minimum 15% on most typical sales (below 750 quid). If your item doesn't need exposure, try to sell somewhere else.

Why not list on eBay but put it up for collection and demand they pay in cash, that way no fees!

There are no paypal fees, but the ebay fees still incur.

eBay fees are despicable, hence why I've been converted to using HUKD and Gumtree. Listing on eBay is a loss-loss scenario as you have to increase the price of your item to offset the fees. This deters potential buyers and thus you've already lost your listing fee and the time you've wasted waiting for the damn thing to sell!

why do we need calculator to calculate 10% fee?,

With the start fees, ending price fees and paypal fees it ends up to 15%

+ PAYPAL will charge You 3.4% + £0.20.

I always work on 15% of everything including paypal when selling on ebay, pretty much covers all bases

It's all guaranteed profit.

While the seller tear **** around to make a buck or two, eBay claw the lion share of any gain.

You lot are daft. Did you not know how much it costs to sell on eBay. Bet you are also the sort who complain if a seller charges 2p more than actual postage too.

For private sellers about 15%is OK unless you are selling items 500 to 750 where costs are nearer 20%

Business sellers pay a lot less.. I mean All... So much so I laugh at the mappers selling their xbox ones and ps4 for 50 or so more than cost and not realising they've made a loss

Not all... Alot

Thanks, this is excellent for directing other too when they assume I offer the same service.

...but then you are creating "supply" for HUKD and Gumtree to tap into this new demand and charge at least something. Aren't free markets a wonderful thing! Gumtree are owned by Ebay and now charge for ads, not sure for all ads though. Amazon are the same charging 17% for non-VAT reg and 15% commission / referral fees for each sale with sub fees of £30 per month for unlimited listings or free for approx 30 sales a month or something like that.

Essentialy its still free to advertise on Gumtree. Like most websitrs that offer the facility to sell stuff there are optional extras which are chargeble. yep owned by Ebay but at this time is free to use and is gaining popularity so therefore becoming a bit more viable as an alternative. No doubt as more people swith over to it Ebay will start to charge on all adds and insist you offer Paypal as a medium for payment but til then.........

Basters now charge on Postage cost as well !

They should be forced to include PayPal and Postage fees in their calculator

If it's your first time make sure you have some of this handy, it won't make it totally pain free but it's a damn site better than going in dry

There's so much talk about "forcing" on here.

Not quite sure how people can claim that eBay fees are "despicable". It's not like you're forced to use them. If you know of a better way to sell your stuff simply say "eBay is not for me ta" and go elsewhere.

Personally I think eBay is fantastic for some items. I sold a 1st gen Nexus 7 recently - Gumtree responders were offering me £70-80. After fees on eBay I ended up with £110 thanks to the final sale price of £125. Yes, they took a large slice but I just posted it on eBay and they told me where to post it 3 days later. Minimal effort on my part and a decent price at the end of it.

Yes, Preloved is still free... Takes longer, but stuff usually sells in the end.

Ironicly I had stuff posted on Ebay recently in Buy it Now format and the amount of stupid offers I got was suprising. All items were well priced and sold for the aking price. You do get the odd idiot on Gumtree but I use ebay completed listins as a guide price and then post on Gumtree & Preloved. If spmebody wants to haggle I have a 15% margin and still no worse off. Its worth noting I have not had many people haggle so overall better off.

Reason so many people are getting fed up with eBay is that it has what many people percieve as a monopoly which they openly abuse. A classic example of how the consummer can benefit if there is healthy competition. There wont be healthy competition untill people wise up and go elsewhere. Hit them where it hurts and eBay will have no choice but to change

Oh and did you know that inspite of all the fees you pay, ypu have very little protection against the fraudulant buyers? Personally think that in itself makes eBays fees 'despicable'. So yes I can and do use alternatives and will continue to encourage others to do so

bahhahahahhaha!!

i tried to start an ebay business. i failed. and was purchasing stock at 40% of final sale value (on average). honestly, i think you must have to purchase stock at 10-20% of final sale value to make any money at all.
