(Mods, if this is in the wrong category, please accept my humble apologies, and move it to a more appropriate one.) eBay has increased their listing and final value fees for their online Stores. They did this to make their core standard auction listings look more "advantageous" over store listings..but these latest increases in fees may kill the small dollar items and drive sellers out of eBay. I sell a lot of small parts on eBay, mainly Transformers accessories. This latest round of fee increases means I'll be earning even less for each item I sell. eBay charges a small fee currently (2¢ per item) to list in my eBay store, and then they take a higher percentage of the final value when it sells than if it sold through a standard auction (currently 8% for items selling up to $25, soon it will be 10%). And they get you with a $15.00 a month store fee, too. Not only that, Sellers get socked with a fee when accepting Paypal payments. Of course, Paypal is owned by eBay, so it all goes to eBay in the end. What this has force me to consider is what other Auction sites are out there that would make good sense for a seller like me to list with? I don't do this as a means of primary income. It's mainly a hobby for me, and a way to make a little extra money to spend on purchasing more Transformers. But in order to make money, I'd either have to stop selling small dollar items, or increase my prices/add handling fees to cover these increases. This would almost certainly have the effect of chasing away buyers, and eventually, I presume I'd have to close my auctions altogether. So I need an alternative to eBay. I have found 3 that look promising, but I'm not sure which is a good option.... Yahoo Auctions offers free listings and no final value fees, but currently I could only find 232 listings from a search for "Transformers", and only 98 in the Transformers category. It seems like the best option, but I'm not sure if items will sell quickly... ePier is basically what eBay used to be before it got too big for it's britches, much lower fees than eBay, but they don't have a relisting fee, which means you can pay one listing fee, and relist for free forever if you need to. I listed 50 auction there for 6 months and never sold a single item. Currently, there are 3 items that show up on a search for "Transformers". OnlineAuction is billed as a refuge for former eBay sellers, with a simple $8 a month membership fee, free listings and no final value fees. There doesn't seem to be as many listings there either, my last search turned up only about 4 items, and 3 of them were there 4 months ago when I had last checked out the site. These three seem like good alternatives for eBay, but only via their 'potential', not in how they are now. Does anyone know of other auction sites that would be good, or maybe one of these three would be better? Which would you choose as an alternative?
