Default Wow, didn't realize eBay was so darn expensive to sellers

Since when did the guys decide to charge 10% final value fee on top of the extra insertion fees. Top that with the paypal fee that is 3.9%. Talk about cutting out any profit to be made......just sold an item for $864. After fees I pocket 734.35
They get $129.65..... Any other auction sites you guys use? I have a ton of stuff to sell in the near future, but eBay is ticking me off

Are you sure about that? I thought that it is 10%, but maxes out at $50.

Yeah, I just sold some stuff too. It sucks that I have to pay extra, but hey. It's probably the best place to get what you're selling out there and get max profit. People that look for stuff to buy online tend to give eBay a chance first, before using other places.

I may be wrong. I think eBay bases there % on volume and rating.

Listing fee, final value fee, and a shipping fee. The second and last fee are 10% all across the board. Idk about eBay motors, I haven't personally sold stuff on that.
