Am I paying too much to sell on ebay?

July 9th, 2012 2 comments

Are these expenses normal or am I paying too much? I sold a camera for $1477. Ebay charged a fee of $62, paypal charged a fee of $58 and the shipping was $18. Is there a way to bypass or lower the paypal fee?

That is high but its all in your agreement. Ebay used to allow people to accept checks and money orders and not to offer paypal. This is no longer the case, they will only let you use paypal if you choose to sell on ebay. There is just too much money to be paid for them. Also beware, if your buyer chooses to open a dispute after receiving the camera, paypal WILL side with him and refund him the money. I sold a 3k bike frame on ebay. Buyer opened a claim saying that its not what he ordered, mailed me back a kids bycicle frame instead. Since paypal had proof of delivery, they went ahead and refunded him the money.
