  • new ebay feesby Dirk Schilling, May 22nd, 2021, 11:28 am

    The day before yesterday I sold 2 larger books for € 3.50 + € 5 postage and packaging and pay a fee of 99 cents. The telephone contact on ebay regretted this company development, but cannot help and calls for protest. Now I should only be 5 cents instead of 35 cents ... »Read more

  • Ebay fees are probably just a rip offby birgit j., May 19, 2021, 5:46 pm

    I have now sold a beautiful pillow for 1.00 euros plus 5.99 euros shipping. After deducting the fees on the sales price (1.00) and on the shipping price (5.99 euros DHL), I only have 0.18 euros in profit. For this 0.18 Euro I had to photograph the article, the article at ... »Read more

  • It was a good time, now it's over.by Martina Müller, May 17, 2021, 6:41 pm

    I received a new statement from EBay for the first time today. At first I thought that could only be a mistake. I also sell a lot of things for just one euro, so the fee is so high that, partly due to the shipping costs, I can make a profit of 20 cents ... »Read more

  • 10% of the total is not enough either !! eBay wants more!by NobbiFU, May 17, 2021, 1:18 pm

    You will be surprised, there is even 11% commission of the total amount + fixed fees for private sales. I called eBay today and had this confirmed to me on the basis of my current sales receipt. I also believe that it is a cheek that even the ... »Read more

  • Rip off through ebayby ikjo53, May 17, 2021, 12:53 pm

    Ebay has dared to cheat its sellers again. In addition to the 11% commission, ebay has also secretly reintroduced charging commission on postage. They tried that years ago and, thanks to a class action lawsuit, are condemned to it after six months ... »Read more

  • I've been on ebay since 2005by Humpy, May 16, 2021, 11:05 pm

    I sold a lot privately on ebay. Kids stuff toys and more. And now it's no longer worth it. Three cheers to the throwaway society. Before I do the job, take pictures, use them and then pay a commission because DHL and Hermes deserve something. Thank you. And ... »Read more

  • That's it with private sales on Ebayfrom Andreas, May 16, 2021, 8:08 pm

    In retrospect, eBay was a great way to get rid of clutter and valuables. I could have coped with the one percent more fee, but the € 0.35 basic fee plus 11% on shipping are too much of a good thing. I took out all the articles and will add it to eBay classifieds ... »Read more

  • paymentby Helmuth Kloth, 11.05.2021, 10:02 a.m.

    EBAY is just lousy. In the past, you bought something, paid for it by direct transfer and the delivery took place promptly. Today, collect money from the customer, first secure your own money and transfer the rest at some point. It is about time that an equivalent operator ... »Read more

  • eBay - rip offby Mrugalla Georg, May 6th, 2021, 1:53 pm

    eBay is a profit oriented Hei and he's hungry. This is where our government should protect us from such food addiction, but instead they look forward to additional tax revenue. It is to despair!!!!
