Good idea but Ebay/Paypal has gone "Overboard"!
A review by jitterbug37813 written on Jul 10, 2007Full review
Due to excessive fees I could not sell on Ebay. Buyers complain about the high shipping & handling costs but what they fail to realize is the outrageous charges that Ebay & Paypal places on the Sellers. When I tried to keep my shipping at a reasonable fee I actually lost money. Also when a payment is processed through Paypal, Paypal takes their fees from the whole amount paid INCLUDING the shipping charges paid by the Buyer. They do NOT take their fee from the ACTUAL PAYMENT that the item sold for. I feel this is not right. The shipping charges is paid by the Buyer. It is not Paypal's money and it is not a profit to the Seller. So, with Ebay's listing fees, then their final fees(if an item sells), and Paypal's excessive fees it is almost impossible to make any money on this site & still be fair to the Buyers. And, you can't blame the Buyers for not wanting to pay excessive shipping & handling charges but they need to blame Ebay & Paypal, not the Sellers. Plus Ebay is making it harder & harder on the Sellers with their messed-up feedback system & now this new "review a Seller" system they have put into place on their Website. Without the Sellers there would be no Ebay! Shame on you Ebay & Paypal for what you are doing to the Sellers and the Buyers!
