This topic will live forever. And I was responding to the person who posted immediately before me.

Are you using a mobile app?

I just sold something on ebay and it is the last thing I sell on ebay, they charge 10% of your final sale amount plus listing fee. I have been a member of eBay for years and liked it but now since their prices are so dang high, I will take my chances elsewhere to sell my items. Now I know why some people are making their shipping prices rediculous because they are adding shipping, handling, & listing fees all together.

The people on these boards possess a wealth of knowledge. Instead of complaining that ebay doesn't tell you the best way to ship, ask for help here. BTW, fees haven't changed in almost five year.

Ebay is getting out of hand with its fees and I think I might be done selling on Ebay. I just sold a pair of kobes and jordans and I was charged $34. Thats crazy!!! There has to be a better way to help the sellers save money or a way to guide with how to ship the cost effective way. Everytime I go to the post office to ship they tell me I could of shipped it cheaper. I just follow what Ebay says and ship according to what they reccomend what happens to be expensive. I just wish there was a max on how much Ebay can charge you for each transaction because $34 for two pairs of shoes is too much!!!!

Stay away!.. Thats my advice to you. If you want to buy something, sure, ebay is great place for that, but as a seller - BEWARE!.. eBay is only in it for themselves.. So again - Stay away!

Re: eBay fees are getting too expensive!!!

in reply to maddog1273
I've been wanting to start selling a few items on here to see if it's for me. I've been reading about these charges. I'm now more confused than ever. I cannot find anything that gets what u would call 'down & dirty' but I've got so many questions.
Can anyone mentor me & help me 2 c if I can make it on here? I'm homebound severely limited on being able to get out due to an accident. I hate having to depend on Social Security Disability Check to live. Much appreciation ahead of time!!!!

I have no idea why EBay has to be soooo darn expensive to buy anything from their site. As soon as I pay off my card with them I'm going somwhere else.

I have been a member since ebay started. I just sold 4 $70.00 items today, and after I received the bill, ebay got 25%. I really don't see how anyone is profiting here besides ebay!

Overhead is one thing....overpriced overhead for what they have provided me as a seller (which has been poor service lately) at a high percentage of the final value, is not equitable.

  Indeed, just sold my bass guitar for $2000,    $200 to ebay, $58.30 for Paypal (an ebay company) and another $50 to ship , because I offered free shipping , because if I had charge for shipping Ebay would have taken 10% of that as well, because they don't trust people to offer fair shipping costs , so all other Ebay members must pay for it, which further lines the pockets of Ebay.

    A member since 1999, I think I will start using Reverb and Craig's List , Ebay you are far too greedy , you have great exposure but at an unfair price
