I AM WRITING THIS GUIDE IN DEFENCE OF EBAY SELLERS, I HAVE JUST SPENT AN HOUR READING REVIEWS FROM PEOPLE WHO THINK THEY ARE BEING RIPPED OF BY EBAY SELLERS........THIS IS NOT TRUE

 

I HAVE TO EXPLAIN HOW THE SYSTEM WORKS

FIRST OF THE POSTAL CHARGES WE HAVE TO PAY GETTING THE ITEMS HERE I CAN HONESTLY TELL YOU AND I HAVE PROOF TO BACK ME UP THAT ON AVERAGE A BOX OF ITEMS COSTS ME 150 DOLLARS TO GET IT HERE, AND THERE IS NOT THAT MUCH IN THE BOX

 

SECOND CUSTOM CHARGES IF U CHECK OUT THE INLAND REVENUE WEBSITE YOU WILL SEE THAT ANY GOODS BROUGHT INTO THE COUNTRY HAVE TO BE DECLARED AND DUTY PAID ON THEM THIS IS LAW EVEN IF U BUY ONE ITEM YOU HAVE TO ADD THIS TRUST ME YOU DONT WANT TO GET CAUGHT

 

THRID VAT THERE IS NO VAT ON CHILDRENS CLOTHES BUT THERE IS ON EVERYTHING ELSE TOYS HAIR BOBBLES STICKERS EVERYTHING, I AM VAT REG SO THAT MEANS I HAVE TO ADD ON THE COST OF VAT I HAVE TO PAY THE GOVERMENT AS I BUY OUT OF UK I CANNOT CLAIM BACK MY VAT ON GOODS I PURCHASE SO I HAVE TO COVER THAT COST

 

FOURTH EBAY FEES, IF AN ITEM DOES NOT SELL FIRST TIME IT COULD BE RELISTED UP TO FOUR TIMES AGAIN AT APPROX 1.00 A TIME YOU HAVE TO ALSO ADD THIS

FIFTH PAYPAL FEES,  I LOVE PAYPAL ITS QUICK ITS EASY BUT THEY CHARGE EACH PAYMENT I RECEIVE I HAVE TO PAY THEM AND ITS NOT CHEAP

SIXTH EBAYS FINAL VALUE FEE AGAIN AS WE ALL KNOW NOT CHEAP

SO ON AVERAGE THIS IS HOW IT WORKS OUT THIS IS JUST A TYPICAL EXAMPLE

USA COST EG DORA TOASTER 7.90

CUSTOMS 50P

VAT 1.00

LISTING FEES 2.00

PAYPAL FEES 1.00

FINAL VALUE FEES 1.00

TOTAL 12.50

NOW I ONLY SOLD THAT ITEM AND YOU CAN CHECK FOR 13.99 SO MY PROFIT WAS SMALL

 

I HEAR YOU ASK WELL HOW DO I MAKE ANY MONEY, ITS NOT THE PROFIT PER ITEM ITS THE OVERALL PROFIT THE AMOUNT I SELL THAT MAKES ME A PROFIT PEOPLE SEEM TO THINK ITS A LOT BUT ITS NOT ITS HARD WORK FOR LITTLE MONEY BUT I LOVE IT

ONE LAST POINT I READ IN ONE REVIEW WHY BUY FROM EBAY YOU DONT EVEN GET A GAURNTEE WELL THEY SHOULD CHECK BEFORE THEY WRITE THINGS AS FROM SOME SELLERS YOU DO AND I AM ONE OF THEM JUST BE CAREFUL WHO U BUY FROM ALWAYS READ ABOUT ME PAGE CHECK FEEDBACK ETC AND ENJOY

 

THERE IS SO MUCH FUN TO HAVE ON EBAY AND ITS HIGHLY ADDICTIVE

IF U FIND THIS HELPS EXPLAIN PLEASE ADD A BIG TICK TO THE BOX

 

THANK YOU SO MUCH
