    Don't forget the listing fee too. Oh and for a lot of items like DVD's and Games, you can't charge Postage and Packaging charges.

    The only thing Ebay is good for is the buyers, the sellers are screwed in every possible way
    Even if a sale goes wrong, the buyer is always in the throne and may threaten negative feedback or something.
    I hate the company more than any other. If they charged say 3.5% only then it wouldn't be so bad and they would still be rich.

    Because it's their site and you choose to use it?



    Ebay have quite a large monopoly. So there is no logic in going elsewhere.

    Agreed, if you don't want to pay the fees, don't use it....
    You are paying for the exposure..

    Still greedy though, sold my girlfriends dad projector & had to pay almost £50 in ebay & paypal fee's!!
    The forcing of free postage is what gets me they could easily just cap it.

    They know its clear they don't want people to get away with moving the money over into there postage. Some people just list it in other ways.

    Yes that's a good point, they need to just cap it, not make it free only.
    Ebay needs to look after the sellers more than the buyers, not the other way round as the sellers are the ones that provide Ebay it's cash.

    stopped using it now, all together, buying and selling, just to much hassle..

    I hate using e-bay now :x
