Don't be fooled by Ebay's new advert on the radio...!
20 odd free listings per month ay!
How can you resist, not, to sell on their site!
But resist you must, because this is a con!
Previously I had sold a few things on their site and when it came to paying my bill...I found it to be exorbitantly high!...I had a butchers at my invoice...only to find 'in horror' that not only had they charged me a final value fee, but they are also now taking a 10% fee on the postage that I charge!
Hmmm! I did not know this! did you?
so if you have found that a lot of items are rather expensive on the site, it is because sellers are now forced to charge no postage and add the cost of the postage onto their items!
In fact when I ranted to the help desk about it! that is what the guy suggested for me to do!
Why would Ebay do this??...he offered an excuse, something about large companies charging high postage and low retail price, so as not to be charged any fees!...
But why should the rest of us suffer...surely just target those sellers! not punish the rest of us, especially us smaller sellers, which surely are their bread and butter!
So next time you decide to sell on Ebay...remember! nothing is for free!
Ebay might be letting you think that! but it is a con! they are getting their money back ...in fact they are getting double if not more than what they would of charged you in selling fee's...it's a win win situation for them...they charge you postage fee's or they get a higher final value fee!
I thought I would bring this to your attention, just in case you didn't realise!
So I would like to ask you...
Do you think Ebay is overstepping the mark here?
Do you think they are getting to big for their boots?
Have you fallen out of love with Ebay?
Where do you sell now? if at all?
Looking forward to hearing your views...
