    Ebay selling Offers - Stitch up or good value

    Ebay selling Offers - Stitch up or good value 13th Apr 18 at 2:20 PM
    I accepted sell for a 1 offer in March. In past used 1 other selling offer, a few months ago no issues.
    I listed a fair few items in March about 100, but sadly many haven't sold, (LP genre probably not appealing to the wider public, as previously). On my March statement loads of 0.29 insertion entry fees. Though these are items, which have not sold yet. Makes up about 80% of the invoice.
    When I listed these items, I am convinced the listing fee said 0.00 at the bottom. I always check this to make sure. I bet if I sell these items in April, I'll have to pay a full final fixed fee, as probably out of the timeline for the selling for a 1 offer.
    OK I know it's probably probably deep in Ebay T&C's somewhere. I can help feeling being mislead and stitched up on fees. It's hard enough make money on ebay without being shafted by them.

    Do the fees shown relate to each item, ie you haven't mistaken the items you are being charged for?

    If that is the case then is it possible you mistook what you saw when you listed? If not and you otherwise complied exactly with the offer, ie only in one category, no automatic re lists etc, phone ebay and complain.

    I am looking at the itemised invoice via CSV file. There is 0.29 against items, I am still currently selling. So I still have the item and already been charged for it. Though I bet if they sell now I will be charged again.
    This is what it says. [Insertion Fee;Promotional rate 0.29]

    I think I might of worked this out. The 0.29 is the rate I supposed to have saved. It's the way the CSV file lays it out. I didn't think I sold that much for such a high bill. Though, at say 10% (and 4% of paypal) all round I suppose it adds up fairly quickly.
    Sorry for the confusion.
