Has anyone taken the time to put together a spreadseet of fees for the various auction sites? I will do it, but wanted to know if someone already beat me to the punch.

Thanks! [img]smileys/smiley1.gif[/img]

Nope, maybe I'm just lazy, but with all the advertising and popularity of eBay, I just stay there.

TBH fees are relative, you may save 'x' amount by listing on 'y' but in the end the only real site that gives the traffic is Ebay and IMO their fees are really quite good all things considered..Edited by: AuctionDreams

There was a guy who did this right after the fees went up last year. He posted the link on the message boards.

I've been trying to find his site again through a keyword search. He based his calculations by even dollar amounts ($1.00 item, costs $0.35. $2.00 item, costs $0.35)and then added another column of the FVFthat they take when the item sells (he did not calculateadditional pictures, features, etc., just a basic listing) and your final result in two more columns -for example, they take X dollar amountand X% of your final bid price.

It was a great spreadsheet and I lost the link. I would love to see another one. I think he did it in excel with formulas that he just copied and pasted. He definitely knew what he was doing - I could never figure it out! He had it for the auctions and the basic stores.

I'm still looking though! Julie
