doesnt cost anything anyway



Since when - they were still charging yesterday. Have i missed something.

Heat and rep added.

Can save a lot on the higher start prices.

It's the final value fees + paypal fees that hit you.

Yeah right!
Thanks for the post I have some stuff to list that I didn't want to put on at 99p.

Anyone who as sold on Ebay will know that if a buyer wants their money back, paypal just give it to them and steal it from your Paypal account. They don't have to return the item.

To stop you taking legal action for it back, they are now making it a term of using Ebay.

So if you use them, then can now legally rob you. :x

"Under eBay Buyer Protection, eBay will, as always, encourage sellers to resolve any problem that their buyers may have. However, as part of this policy, there may be instances where a seller doesn't resolve a claim and we find in favour of the buyer. If so, we may remove funds from the seller’s PayPal account to reimburse the buyer for the cost of the item and original postage. If this payment process fails due to lack of funds or any other reason we may refund the buyer directly for the cost of the item and original postage. In this case, the seller must reimburse us in full, and in a timely manner, for an amount equivalent to the sum we paid to the buyer.

All depends on what you list - it's free to list games and DVD's at 0.99p as that's what I normally sell... the highest fee I may get charged is 5p.

It's always the paypal and FVF's that cost...

Yes, and you can no-longer charge postage, so i bet profits are big for a 99p dvd.

Listing an item of £50 costs £1, so clearly this can save you a few bob, unless u are selling at 99p start.

Its about time they started having reduced FVF days though.

I never said the DVD's sold for 99p, I said listed at 99p, and I never said that this wouldn't save some people a 'few bob', I simply highlighted the areas you can already list for free...:x

the stupid thing is, in this country we have allowed ebay to FORCE us to accept paypal as a payment method. In Australia, this is considered a monopoly or something similar and therefore their sellers can choose to accept whatever they want and dont have to accept paypal at all.

rant over.........ha ha I feel better

THATS IT.. THERE IS NO POINT SELLING ANYTHING APART FROM VERY RARE CD'S, RECORDS OR ANTIQUES. will cost you a fortune.so the free listing dsay is absoloute ******Love also the fact that Ebay "stops fake items etc being listed" what an absoloute joke..... type in Lion King DVD and you struggling finding a genuine UK shop bought region 2 dvd item... Everything is "brand new" region 1 (but there all fake lol)Ebay went down hill in 2001, its never recovered and now its completely petty with things getting worse and worse. If some one doesn't pay me why should I leave them negative feedbackrant over.........ha ha I feel better

Did anyone know that Paypal lost an estimated £30m to £60m of your hard earned cash last Oct when the big banks nearly ground to a halt.

The only reason it didn't go bust according to some reports was because of all the cash people leave on their balance (which should acrrue interest? should it not)

eBay is a mugs game, free listing is worthless it is the final valuation fees that ebay hits you with. Not to mention forcing you to take PayPal.

Not exactly a deal is it.

Yeah Ebay and Paypal are money grabbing ******s, total ******s
They could just charge say a 5% Final Value Fee or even less and still make mega millions. but around 10%? **** off Ebay

:-D Feels much better to let it out too

Top and botom of it all is that the OP posted something which is useful to save us all some money, :thumbsup:evven though its E-Bay:pirate:, so its a hot deal from me, thanks.

Simple solution to this is to charge 5% handling fee for Paypal payments. Although its unfair to deter people from using Paypal, the 5% charge will cover the rip-off paypal fee & remind people to think twice using Paypal as many have a false sense of security thinking Paypal payments are fool-proof.

not according to paypal (dont believe them though) i had this argument the other day when they tried to keep my funds for 180 days, the manager on the phone stated that "paypal doesnt recieve any interest on money held in a persons account" (yeah rite) also paypal staff couldnt work out if paypal was actually registered as a bank or not!

In the end i got them to release my money by threatening them with legal action and reporting them to the FSA. they soon backed down, wont use them ever again and defo wont reccomend them.

ebay are a bump. they take the mick with the final value fees and the paypal fees. they have clearly got too big for their boots. we should all boycott them

How much is it usually to list a car? :thinking:

Unfortunately that is against ebay rules to charge any extra which is to reimburse the seller for ebay or/and paypal fees! Utter dog sh*t!

And yeah, people do have that feeling, I did when a guy bought and paid for a mobile phone a while back and had a confirmed address in India, and contacted me in advance to arrange the delivery and costs. After a week his payment was withdrawn by his credit card company and Paypal took the money back from my account (Though I had already withdrawn it so I was overdrawn by £100)! Good job I was moving house and told them where they could shove it if they thought I was going to pay them back! :thumbsup:

Many used to charge a fee for using paypal - Ebay banned it.

Many sellers then added a bit to the postage to cover fees - Ebay are bringing in free postage.

I threatened to go to Ireland, where they had an office, along with the Irish press. I was actually booking plane tickets when they backed down and released my account.

They are a bunch of crooks.

That's right they don't earn interest as they act like a bank. What they do is play the markets with our money. Hence the huge loss when the world nearly ended lol

paypal tried to become a bank I seem to remember in 2002/2003 but was flatly rejected due to the ridiculous fees for receiving money

can a mod move this to freebies? :?

Use extreme caution if visiting the above site - both AVG and Google report exploit injections on that domain :oops:

havent had much to do with ebay in a long while, you guys are right the fees just sting too much, that and the fact that you MUST accept paypal on all listings even collection only. i recently sold some bits for collection only, they went for 99p and the b#####ds paid by paypal so i lost almost all of the measly 99p to ebay & paypal. ok i was only selling them to clear space, but still annoyed me that the buyers wouldnt bring a £1 coin with them instead of using paypal.

unfortunitly ebay is the only answer for alot of people no matter what their fvf is if ebay wasnt here the seller wouldnt make any money

the thing i hate now is they are inforcing the business accounts on people even on people that dont do it as business, and if you list loads on their free listing days they send the email to upgrade your account to business

usualy hate voting cold.
I will do an exception for ebay.greedy b*****s

Does the free listing include cars, normally £8? :thinking:

Thanks
