I used to charge a flat 40% and paid the fees but it really depends on what you are selling.
I can't get 40% for baby clothing, but I can for antiques.
But in the end-I only sell for me because most people who want you to sell their stuff have an inflated value in mind and are not happy with the price you got.
There is nothing more fun that selling a $300 antique plate and having the owner refuse to sell for that much. Not worth any price.

In my area it's usually around 30% if they're selling from their home - up to 50% if they have a store with rent to pay.
