I recently listed and sold an item on eBay (buyer pays shipping).

This is how it went down. See if you can follow this without seeing eBay as the *** that they are.

The item sold for:


eBay charged the seller $26.55 shipping for a total of

= $76.55

eBay then appropriated a commission of 12,55%, of not just the item's sale price but the sale price PLUS eBay's phony shipping price, ebay pockets $9.61 instead of $ which they were entitled.

($26.55 - $19.01) = $9.61

So the bottom line is this:

eBay screws the buyer charging them $26.55 for a $19.01 asserted cost

The seller get screwed netting only $46.54 for a $50 sale (buyer pays shipping)

While the retail cost of shipping for this item is less than $14 via the exact same carrier.

So eBay netted on this transaction:

76.55-46.54 =30.01 -14 (likely less) shipping = 16.01


= 32% take

When they already could take a risk free, nearly costless 12.55% take.

Who needs to be involved in organized drug trafficking when this kind of theft is legal?

ebay charged me $19

User's recommendation: Don't sell on eBay.

Monetary Loss: $100.

Preferred solution: Let the company propose a solution.
