Default Ebay Listing Fees

Did I miss something? When did a 99 cent item become 30 cents to list?

Is it just me that 30 cents is showing up as the listing fee?

Changed May 1st bud ... everyone gets 50 free listings in any style per month, after that it's $0.30 per.

Trying to keep the cheap stuff off and get people to buy Store subscriptions each month (you can list more for free with a one-ear subscription).

Hopefully this slows down all the low balling 0.99 sellers with free shipping. These guys are destroying low end sales for the rest of us. How can you compete with .99 and free shipping? I realize these are PWE sellers but now they are losing money for sure so hopefully they stop.

So I'm guessing this is better for $10+ cards especially bin/Bo right? What was it 15% for bin and 10% for auctions before?

Agreed. They don't give a shite about sellers, don't care much more about buyers. They sure as hell care about their bottom line though. People continue to put up with ebay's crap though, so maybe it's us who suck!

You know you guys are all free to sell on other sites? eBay is not a monopoly....there are plenty of other sites/message boards to sell on. Instead of being on here b*tching all the time, maybe make an effort and do something different for once.

Well lets start hearing other options of selling online besides Ebay from the people who think Ebay "sucks". In addition to your list of other auction sites please include the sites total member count, daily traffic, payment options, etc. Then for extra credit please find me a well known auction house that charges less than a 10% fee.

Why does everyone want something for free? Case breakers want to flip their cards on ebay and call it a business but complain about ebay fees??? I'm pretty sure other businesses have to pay rent and utilities and they dont start threads on message boards about how commercial real estate and landlords sucks. STFU already about ebay listing fees and how ebay is bad.

Check Out My Collectibles - COMC

I recently added my first submission (~700 cards), bought a port (~650 cards) and am about to ship off another submission (~500 cards). It's a great site and I'm glad I listened to others here and tried it out.

I have to do barely any work and it costs a grand total of 25 cents per card. If the card sells for 50 cents, I pay 25 cents. If the card sells for $100, I pay 25 cents.

Check it out. Way better than eBay for cards.

COMC? Their fees are worse than eBay. They charge you 20% on withdrawing your money. 25 cents to list the card, and appeals to a much smaller group of buyers. No thanks, I'll stick with eBay all day and twice on Sunday.

You only pay 20% if you sell a card and cash out right then. I probably pay around 2% when I cashout. Reinvest to lower your percentage or buy a card to have it shipped to you and sell it on ebay. You are really missing out if you choose to overlook them alltogether. Each has pros and cons.
