Just complaining for a minute! I've been doing pretty good decluttering and selling most on eBay and just using that money to buy anything that's have been a necessity or transferring the rest to the bank. But man the eBay fees sure add up!

Re: Ebay fees

Yep, but it's the price you pay to target a ton of people basically. You might never sell or else wait for a long time to sell your item otherwise.


They do add up really quickly though.

I love that there's no fees for selling in the cloth diaper section though

Re: Ebay fees

ebay fees / Paypal issues are discouraging, so I have not tried the ebay international yet.

This is me too. I sold a pair of shoes for $12 or $15 (can't remember) but by the time I was done with shipping and fees I think I made $4? Even a recent diaper sale for $6 only returned $3. I go back and forth about whether that 3 & 4 $ are worth the time.
