I was wondering if opening a ebay store was cheaper.It seems to me that the fees are the same if not more,and you have to pay a monthly fee For example how much would it cost to sell something for 500.00? :s Thank you for any input.
Thanks allison, I was checking on ebay and I was a bit confused on the fees I read in one of the help areas on fees that it would be 10% + 7% for final value fees.It sounded like to sell a item for 500.00 It would cost around 100.00 + they will charge you 3% pay pal fees?Way too much!
I believe Ebay charges more final value fee for stores but you save on the listing fees. I prefer Auctiva. Normal Ebay fees, but a LOT of functionality and free. I'm not connected to them in any way except as a happy user. I'm VERY impressed with the service, 'specially for no charge.
i have a store and i love it. the difference is something can sit and wait for the right buyer instead of the immediacy (sp?) of an auction. you list an auction and no one buys, list it again no one buys, youre out all the fees. put it in the store and it can sit for months with only the 11 cent or 13 cent listing. the fvf are higher but i think it all works out in the end. hth.
auctiva is a site that you list your eBay auctions through. It saves your money because they have their own picture hosting, it helps you with HTML, and it saves all of your listings for you, even after they sold. It's free to use.
