Just that really, I'm pretty new to eBay and they don't email to tell me, thanks smile

Also does free listings apply to anything, I'm just looking to sell clothes.
If they don't sell, I take it you just don't pay anything?

I think it's this weekend

Check Announcements* each friday at 6pm or join the selling challenge threads here to get notice. I expect it to be this weekend or the one after.

*ps, sometimes we get an unannounced FLW confused.

Thank you I' ll have a hunt for a seller challenge thread.
Am I right in thinking you just pay the actual end percentage price at the end of a sale?

You still pay for any listing extras (like extra pictures or reserve price fee), you still pay paypal fees (3.4% of total including P&P, plus 20pence fixed charge), and you still pay 10% of the "sale" price.

oh i was wondering this too

ProlificWillyBreeder Fri 08-Feb-13 09:14:01

Ok thank you, I finally understand.
It's still worth doing though yes?

Zero fees this weekend, I think it just came online in last few minutes(!?)

ps: sorry just saw last Qs: yes still worthwhile, but research your item carefully make sure you get postage fees to cover your costs. I put extra pictures on another website to avoid paying fees on them. I schedule listings weeks in advance and then send them live on FLWs to avoid even 6p schedule fee. I use start price as reserve and wait for FLW. Little tricks like that.

Do you mean to add the

Do you mean

ProlificWillyBreeder Fri 08-Feb-13 15:06:01

Argh! Right what I'm trying to post is: do you add your postage fee bit to where it states postage under the bid bit?
I have already been caught out by this by not putting enough and I ended up paying myself!

ProlificWillyBreeder Fri 08-Feb-13 15:07:17

Also what does sellers feedback mean? What should I say about the people I posted to? I don't understand?
Thanks so much for replying I feel I'm a tad late to the eBay party!

CuttedUpPear Fri 08-Feb-13 15:09:05

Just say "Great ebayer +++"
That's what I do anyway.

CuttedUpPear Fri 08-Feb-13 15:10:43

Obvs wait until they have paid up before leaving feedback. Feedback is that number next to your name which increases with each transaction so that people can see you've made lots of ebay transactions successfully.

(I take it I upload tomorrow)

ProlificWillyBreeder Fri 08-Feb-13 20:00:06

My next eBay question: I have looked at my summary for fees I owe about a fiver but it doesn't tell me when I need to pay and how I do it?
Please help blush

I think usually you find you have already set things up so that payment comes out of your paypal account.

Postage: it's one of the fields you fill when making the listing.

Feedback: I don't give mine until buyer has filled in theirs; Because I don't know until then that they are happy with purchase and I won't need to fix a problem.

ProlificWillyBreeder Wed 13-Feb-13 12:04:01

Someone bought one of my items! Hurray!
They haven't paid yet, I haven't experienced this before. From a complicated google search I take it I wait 4 days then email them asking them to pay? If they don't then I open a dispute case? Is that right?

fergoose Wed 13-Feb-13 14:12:49

no point emailing, just open dispute on day 4 - they still have another 4 days to pay before you can close it.
