Yeah small stuff like flies which can just go in an envelope are usually ok.
well with 110delivery to home country (ireland )or 2.90 to cover stamps envelopes and time posting to the uk theres only one winner,, the customer ,you hardly expect a home made padded container for that price

only sell when they offer me the £1 listing, last reel I sold was £240 and my final bill was, yes you guessed it a pound.
You must have been paid by bank transfer/cheque etc then Stephen.?

No PP fees.?

if you sell regular on ebay you will be sent the £1 final fee offer

so best to wait till these offers come up and then if you have an item that you want sell for say £200 or £50 for then you list it
you get charged only £1.00 yes you have to pay paypal being 3.5%
but work it out correctly and you will get what you want for the goods and not lose out
problem is with ebay that all traders are selling on there be it under different names as they found that they were losing out
its not like when it first started out / what is these days
I always get payment by paypal so you and the buyer are covered
there is always one rotten apples out there that may try to trick you
still a good way to get rid of your unwanted bits unless you want to stand in a Filed and do a Boot sale !

As we are talking in pounds
but this is what I am charged

sell normal day

say for £18 pounds
get charged 10% from ebay + 5% on the postal fee + 3.5% paypal
I work it out at 20% much easier

then on special day

sell for £18
get charged flat fee of £1.00 DEAD no extra:)
only on the Paypal fees unless the buyer picks up and pays cash

So £1 days are the ones to get expensive items sold (y)

I think I can safely say that I rarely sold anything on ebay not regulary anyway. I did take advantage of the final value fees of £1 though but the last offer they upped it to 50 per cent. I also noticed they have started to take a percentage of postal costs.

i have to agree with you after availing of there free listing .i believeyes its free but you,
have to be international seller
have to have shipping
have to have handling
have to have, well you get what im saying
then as stated above theres fees for ebay and fees for paypal
then theres postage fees packing fees fees fees fees every where
how on earth can you compete on ebay ?with people practically giving away stuff

so i sell a fly for approx£2.26 and pay the fees im left getting 1.40 a fly and
post , for tying .sourcing ,buying materials ,labour ,time , im at a loss before i start,
isnt this mad

I used to use ebay frequently got the post items for £1 but always paid 10% iirc of the total sale sum?
Maybe the add was £1 dunno but it was never £1 i just ignore them now.

ill have to check on it i listed them at 1.10 euro domesticand 2.00 euro international and as far as i believe you only pay postage once per order
It's showing UK postage as £2.62 if you like I'll take a screenshot for you?
You should maybe put a mention in the description 👍
Best of luck with your venture I wish you the best 🤞
