New royal mail charges from April mean dvds will be 76p minimum 2nd class,
Ebay don't let you charge postage on DVDS
Ebay take 10% of sales
Paypal take 2.5% of sale value
Paypal also takes a 20p minimum charge.
padded enveloped - 8 for £1 at pound shop, about 12p each


Say you sell a DVD for £1

you forgot dont paypal charge 20p minimum plus 2.5%

I recently sold a set of DVDs on eBay which had to go P&P free. I simply added the extra to the initail auction price that I was happy to receive. I may have attracted more bidders at a lower price, but I felt I had to cover myself. I'd rather give them to charity shops than risk selling at a low price.

21p loss on a £1 sale is crazy crazy. Something needs to be done with ebay.

How quickly does stuff shift on Play?

Yeah ebay are eating the sellers profits. Ebay never seem to listen to what the people want. Do not know why they do allow negative feedback.
If you list an item for under 99p it free but they also take a 10% fee. Plus you have to pay your paypal fees.
