    Sorry I jsut need a little rant!

    i had no clue that you had to pay 15 % Vat to Ebay for anything you sold :( I have jsut sold some concert tickets for face value, because I am no longer able to go ...and now I lose out by £16 because I have to pay a stupid fee! i know i doesn't sound a lot but it is to us right now!

    If i've have bloody known I would have tried to sell them a different way and not thru ebay :(:(

    You can cancel the transaction if the buyer agrees and ask them to collect them then you dont get stung for fees.

    not sure the selling fees are 15% vat, its usually 10% of the finalvalue fee, which does include vat but they cant actually charge you 15% vat

    yeah its stupid you get charged to list it then charged to sell it.

    My mum listed something starting at £5, and it ended it £5 but ebay still took 50p *not much i no* but that left her with £4.50 so not even the starting price :dohh:

    Im sure ebay still charge for cash on collection items to.

    So you pay to list, pay to sell it, and pay to get the money into paypal..

    So 3x XXX amount to the same company :dohh: :nope:

    yip, hence the reason i stopped using ebay regularly to sell things its just a huge rip - in the early days it was fab too :(

    my little brother got truly stung with the final value fees, he never knew about them, or didnt pay attention when he should of and sold over a grands worth of stuff in the summer - took the money from paypal and 3 weeks later got an invoice to the tune of £127
