If they keep raising their fees it could take forever! Now they want 10% of shipping fees too! On a recent $525.00 sale the costs were: Listing - $6.50 - Final value fee - $47.60 - Final value shipping - $4.95 - PayPal fees - $15.84 - Actual shipping cost - $50.50
So a $525.00 sale nets me $400.00 on Ebay. A $525.00 sale on craigslist nets me $525.00. Hmmm, which should I use in the future? If you disregard the actual shipping fees Ebay-PayPal are taking more than 15% off of the top of every sale.
Agreed. eBay is not worthy of $60 per share. Too many internal problems, like the recent opting-in of sellers to "eBay managed returns", they sure fixed that quick after widespread outrage. However, they did invalidate their TOS opening a loophole for Class Action.
