After being on ebay for almost a year selling stuff, mostly electronics. I received a newsletter from ebay and I did some analysis and found out that I’ve been paying a ton of money on fees that I don’t believe profit anything. For example if I sell $100 item, ebay fee is $10, and paypal fee is about $4, and shipping fee for the item also, my cost for the item probably greater than $60, that’s not profit, this sucks!
So again I did the analysis and my volume is worth it to subscribed to ebay store paying a fee of $16 a month, yearly subscription that is. I think it’s worth for me because I mostly sell computers electronic stuff and the fee will be 4% or so with ebay store subscription. As what I’m seeing paying monthly fee at ebay store scared me, $200 a month sometime, that’s nuts!.
Anyhow I subscribed to it, since I have a little experience with ebay now, I think I make a little bit of money for kids toys LOL. It’s good because I never really need to leave my house as I purchased stuff low and sell them high, and use cheap USPS, and probably will be upgrade to UPS soon. Will see though, I had past experience where shipping went wrong, items shipped went wrong, but was able to comply with ebay policy and managed to make customer happy and fixed problems.
Will see how things goes 🙂
