No.   I looked into it once and its to spendy.

As shown below, Consignorís minimum commission is $10.00 per auction listing (if it doesnt sell, ou till owe $10)
When an item sells, Consignor shall deduct commissionís % from that portion of sale. If the item sells for $40.00, the 1st $29.99 commission % is 45%, and the remaining $10.01 is at 40%. The current commission schedule is as follows:
$ 0.00 - Unsold
Minimum Commission is $10.00

$ 00.01 - $ 29.99
Commission is 45%

$ 30.00 - $ 49.99
Commission is 40%

$ 50.00 - $ 74.99
Commission is 35%

$ 75.00 - $ 199.99
Commission is 30%

$ 200.00 - $ 499.99
Commission is 25%

$ 500.00 - $ 5,000.00
Commission is 20%

Relisting Fee:
$2.00 Per Auction Per Listing

Considering I mostly "pick", I mostly do "smalls"....
An item that sells for $29.99 has close to a 14% ebay/paypal fee.  And that's without shipping. Add just $5 shipping and your pushing 16%.

Now I'm down to about $25.  They take 45%; now Im at $13.75.   Minus the cost of item....?

Thanks for that info.

Not sure if that is what I meant -
I am looking at the software that helps you List your items - rather than just using the eBay lister.
I used one years ago - made life a lot easier for listing and relisting same/similar items.

I probably named it incorrectly.  Or if that is it - you are right - no way.

Am I making sense?


thanks

Ohhhh.   Okay.

Yes, there is software to do that but I ebay so little I haven't looked into it.
You can set up templates in ebay to make listings faster but, again, my little use, I've never done it.

If you've read past posts, I've only done ebay on my own starting this year.  Before that it was my ex's job, after her I paid a friend.   So I know a lot about ebay but hands-on experiance is limited.  Very frustrating when I know something can be done but takes me forever to figure out how to get it done!  lol

Just google: ebay template

You'll get a bunch of results but I can't recommend any.   But now I'm curious so I'll look around and if any look cool I'll update this post.

Thanks for the Help!

For anyone else - I found "Turbo Lister".
Are there any others that are better that you would recommend?

I only list 10 to 20 items a month and sell maybe 10 to 12 a month on a regular basis, so I don't need turbo anything. I use the templates and that is useful as you can save about 10 templates I think and pick the approach for any given item you are listing.

If you have an item listed and have others that are similar you can just click on the original item's "sell a similar item" link and then change the content and pics as necessary.

As in many thing in life the KISS strategy might apply....Keep It Simple Stupid.

Going to have to agree w/ MovieMan.
In last couple days - I have listed directly on eBay and w/ Turbolister.
eBay was EASIER!
It may make a difference if I have massive amounts of items. 
So far, around 12 or so.

for those of you interested in trying out a listing service inkfrog is a service that has a free element, more advanced parts you have to pay for. its kinda nice in that you can do things like automate leaving feedback. i have like 10 messages that are randomly left after people buy things so its not the same message everytime, looks more personalized. i can also print all my ebay orders in one click instead of having to go line item by line item in paypal. if your only selling a dozen or so things a month maybe not worth it but when you have 50+ orders comming in a day and hundreds of listings itss a big time saver.

I would say blackthorne pro is the best software I have used for Ebay and I pretty much tried them all. Its desktop based but super easy to use and tracks inventory

Hi, guys new here, first post, anyway, I have used eBay directly and also turbo lister, they both have their ups and downs, The thinkg that I like about turbo lister is that a non-store user gets 50 free listings a month(no listing fees) unless ebay sends out a promotion like 500, 5000, 1 million etc, etc. Anyway it takes a long time to set up that many listings, and they only usually give you 4 or 5 days, mostly on a holiday weekend(go figure). Anyway with turbo lister you can create your couple hundred listings over a couple of weeks and then have them sitiing in a folder waiting to upload, then when they have theri promotion, open turbo lister select you couple hundred listings and hit upload. wala, taking advantage of their promotion and you don't have to spend your whole weekend setting up hundreds of listings. Just my 2 cents. On a side note; I really am enjoying reading the different discussions in these forums, keep it up.  ;)
