they raised fees not long ago. they changed their fee structure too. I remember getting the email but forgot the details.
I don't sell much on there anymore, and as a buyer i notice a lot of sellers charging higher s&h fees than before to partially compensate for the money lost in fees..
it sucks.

i feel ur pain. i can barely make any money anymore on ebay. the fees have gotten out of control. what makes me mad is that they charge u fees and then get paypal fees on top of it. guess that is what happens when they have the monopoly.

do you know if you charge buyer with high fees on shipping they also get a percentage of that shipping fee you charge, check your account every time you sell an item. just a thought.

eBay takes a percentage of your shipping charges too. They did this because they found out people were selling stuff for about .99 cents but charged $60 for shipping. I sell a lot in eBay and they really piss me off.. Paypal is just as bad!

All true! They are disgusting with regards to their fees....

 

 

Also, I remember when ebay used to send you a £10 voucher when you reached a new star rating colour. I have paid no end of fees to them and they send nothing. Other people say they have received 10% off codes but I get nothing at all :-(
