    somewhat OT: what's with ebay's monthly seller charge?

    I did not sell one friggin' thing last month, yet ebay hit me with a "monthly recurring seller" charge.

    Is this one of those policy changes that came into effect? Am I going to have to list my stuff on Craig's list instead?

    One last question: is there a classified section on this site? I think a classifieds would be great on this part of the forum.

    Do you have an eBay store, or do you just have regular seller status?

    eBay's new fees suck. With shipping rates already being higher, it's hard to stay cheap as a seller if they're charging more as they are now. If there is indeed going to be a "monthly seller's fee," I'm out. That's bullshit, considering the amount of money they're already taking in (with PayPal as well).

    They're putting the squeeze on of late. I read an article saying that eBay is reacting to low new buyer registration. So it seems they're doing more to favor buyers than sellers now, and in the process they're driving sellers away. eBay has been my big source for gear hunting, shopping, and selling for the last couple of years, but I see the writing on the wall.

    I suspect a classifieds listing on VHLinks might pin Brett with too much liability, either formal or informal.

    I did sell one friggin' item last month.

    No, I am just Joe Blow selling off my guitar and music crap. I don't have a store on there.

    I got charged $11 USD for selling a $60 pedal!!!

    I'm telling you- e bay is going to die if they keep pulling crap like this. Also, they don't have any domestic help who speaks good English if you have an issue.

    I was curious what the monthly charge was? I had been considering selling a couple of custom shop wolfs, but not so sure now. I have only purchased on ebay in the past. Thanks!

    ePay has become a pain in the ass. Have a few friends that used to have eBay Stores for their home run businesses, but have all left the place due to the "back end" fees. They were lucky if, in the end, they made any sort of profit at all.

    Mikey - Do you list just in your city/state/ I have not had a lot of luck listing locally here in CO. I have a couple of custom shop wolfs that I want to list. Just curious to get your feedback. Thanks.
