    People might say that I am taking advantage, but if I don't, someone else will - but ALL the DVD's I have bought over the last few weeks have cost the seller more in postage than I paid for them (with free P&P)

    I have noticed a big increase in P&P in the listing though for DVD's - I can't be bothered argueing, so just don't bid on them. There are plenty of what ever you want to just ignore these.

    If you list a DVD starting t more than 99p is there still a listing fee?

    Of course, items at 99p and under are free to list on a private account. Therefore items over that attract a listing fee.

  • Have just seen this on ebay after not having been on for a while...

    http://pages.ebay.co.uk/sell/private-sellers-pricechange-march/

    It states on the page
    • " If you're a private seller, it's free to list any auction-style items starting at £0.99p or less
    • It's still free to upload your first photo
    • It costs you nothing if your item doesn't sell
    • We only apply a 10% final value fee (max. £40) if you sell your item
    • You can set a reserve price for a small fee"
    I can't remember how what percentage the final value fee was before - is this a price hike which has been hidden by enticing us with free listing?

    Thanks

    No its a price hike that's been made fairly clear as there has been a wholesale change in listing prices and final value fees over the last 18 months or so. Depending how you sell the price changes may even be a drop in fees rather than a raise.
