March '09 - Not Selling On Ebay Anymore.
moment I've got a DVD on ebay and someone's
made a bid but after it's sold I won't be
selling anything else on ebay, not for a
quite a few Project Ako DVDs and other animes
but I'm going to have to sell them by other
problem is it's got to the point where ebay
fees are higher than the cost of the product
I'm selling. Ebay has a new rule stating that
if you sell a DVD or game then you're not
allowed to charge for post and packaging. It's
supposed to stop people selling a DVD for 1
penny and charging a high postage cost. This
rule doesn't apply to video tapes so it is in
fact more profitable to sell VHS tapes
instead of DVDs.
adding the postage cost onto the price of the
DVD means the fees for selling it are higher,
so it's difficult to set a proper price
because ebay are making money out of the
postage price too.
item doesn't sell the first time round then
ebay still makes money and I've been charged
£4.07 to sell an item for £3.99, and I have
to add £1.50 postage cost so I'm £1.58 down.
To make a profit I wold have to increase the
price and it wouldn't sell.
the future I'm not going to sell anything on
ebay, maybe I'll use another online auction
that doesn't rip people off!
are lots of other people complaining too, do
a search on Google for ebay complaints and
you can see what has happend to people by
this simple rule change.
