    eBay final value fee for cash on collection

    I'm selling something of fairly high value on Ebay and i'm asking for cash on collection with no option for paypal. I'm just wondering if eBay still take the final value fee? I'm guessing they do right?

    You agree sale with a bidder who pays cash on collection you then cancel your item, job done. Loads of people do it, but rubbish when you are trying to bid on an item though.

    Depends, if they contact you and you agree to end the listing and they come and pay cash, then no you wont have to pay a fee - this would be the best outcome.

    If the auction finishes then you will have to pay the fee

    Good idea that, I guess the buyer would need to mutually 'cancel' it too … Good idea that, I guess the buyer would need to mutually 'cancel' it too right?

    No.
    You would list the item with immediate payment,but also state they contact you first before buying (hitting the buy it now button) due to you having to accept a date for collecting.
    When someone messages you,only cancel the item once they have paid you cash in hand & they will not need to mutually agree anything.

    If your not happy paying ebay's fee's try the local paper first or carboot, or even a notice in the post office with details of what it is your selling.
    Personally i HATE it when someone puts something on ebay i'm interested in and then takes it down cos someone made them an offer, ( it's happened 3 times this past week actually ) but i do also hate the fact ebay and paypal fee's for a sale are now around 15%.
    There is also another web site you could try your item on the site is called preloved, type it into google and you shoudl find it, i've sold several things on there instead of ebay and bought as well it's a good site.

    It's for a Bugaboo stroller which I've listed here … It's for a Bugaboo stroller which I've listed here now:http://www.hotukdeals.com/for-sale-trade/bugaboo-cameleon-charcoal-grey-red-travel-system-stroller/886513They tend to go for around £400 which hits the £40 max charge nicely If I accepted Paypal that'd be even more robbed from me, then add the listing fee into that... it's scandelous



    I agree with you, Ebay/Paypal fees have got to a level where its hardly worth using them any more - And i must say, ive noticed Ebay has become a lot lot quieter the last few months, i really think people are cottoning onto the fact Ebay is a complete rip off for sellers - not only the fees but the fact the buyer is ALWAYS right no matter what problems they cause...its put a lot of people off.

    Well that's why people cancel the item before bidding ends.
