Selling on Ebay update

October 5th, 2013 at 02:08 pm

So after my last round of selling on ebay I was amazed at how much the costs have increased. Has anyone else noticed how much the prices have gone up?

    NE was just complaining to me about that last night. Smile He's decided to open up a store on Ebay - he figures it'll save him $50+/month in fees.

    That's a great solution!

    That's one of the main things that has ruined ebay for small sellers. Unless you are selling higher priced items, the fees destroy you. I used to sell regularly. At one point back in 2000, I always kept 100 auctions running and I did well but most of my items are lower priced like under $20. Today, doing that is impossible. Between rising fees and rising postage, it just isn't worth it. I can't sell the items for enough to cover everything and still make a decent profit.

    Yep, the fees are rising. I think I've estimated them to be at about 10% of the selling price, unless they have gone up more.

    That's about what NE has figured them to be as well - about 10%, then add on the 3% Paypal fees .. it really eats a chunk of the profit.

    I'm averaging 15% for eBay and Paypal combined. Most of my items are lower priced.
