  1. Was just wondering how everyones seller fees were since the fee increase.

    It actually worked out better for me, I often have to relist an item more than once before it sells so I like the lower listing fees.

    I made a little over $1200 more this month than I did last month and my fees this month were $40.73 less!!! I qualified for the 15% powerseller fvf discount wich was a savings of $22.99.
     
  2. Well that's great for the PowerSellers around here...

    I've definitely noticed that the FVF is more. Maybe I'm just more aware of it now than I have been in the past with all of the discussion? But I sold an LV Pochette for $237.41 + shipping, and I only saw $200.00 of that sale. After paying off my seller account (had two listings, one completed that were paid out of the sale of that Pochette) and shipping...
     
  3. I only get 5$ back from being a powerseller. I cant get my darn shipping above a 4.6 no matter how hard I try
     
  4. I did notice that the listing fees were a good bit less, I'm a Power Seller also. The final value fees were not as bad as I expected. Paypal fees, there I saw a noticable difference.

    Cheers,
     
  5. paypal fees are lower? and ebays are higher?
     
  6. Not much good thing for me since I am not a Power Seller... the final value fee is really high for small regular seller like me ...
     
  7. I haven't sold anything since the increase.
     
  8. i sold a bit over $1,000 last month, paypal and ebay took about $100 off me all together... sigh...i wish i was a power seller, seems like you save quite a bit.
     
  9. I saved before I got the PS discount....I just saved more with it. I don't sell $1000 dollar items, just a bunch of items anywhere from $9.95-$500. A lot of my items don't sell on the first or second listing so I have to re-list.
     
  10. Do you have to apply to become a power seller or will ebay automatically upgrade once you sell enough in a month?
     
  11. I thinks it's if you sell over 1k for 3 months in a row or 100 widgets per month for 3 months.

    You must maintain 1k a month to stay a PS. One bag a month has done it for me. Love Chanel!
    Cheers,
     
  12. You also have to sell a minimum of 2 items per month. If you meet the requirements you can contact them and they will send your invitation.
