How much do you charge to list an item?
We charge 25% of the final selling price plus an additional 9% to cover eBay fees. From our commission we pay the 2.9% PayPal fees, shipping insurance and materials costs. At least half of our auctions sell overseas. This overseas market helps increase the final selling price of the item which can cover much of our commission.
