I am new to selling on ebay, and I am trying to understand how much ebay and paypal fees affect a selling price :shrugs: .

Does anybody know, for example what percentage of a final selling price I would I have to pay to both ebay and paypal for using their services, so that I can work out what the starting bid for an item can be?

In other words, how much do I have to add to the amout I want to get from one item :confused1: ?

Thank you!

take advantage of the cheaper listing days, when ebay sends out emails with reduced listing prices... it'll save you a little bit! And try to use your own server to host the photos instead of paying extra for additional photo hosting thru ebay. Every little bit helps!
