This information is on how your loosing money by selling a 1p picture on ebay. Sellers Beware you must not sell 1p ebooks to boost your feedback score or you could be suspended or blocked from ebay for 3 months or indefinitely. So DO NOT use this information to get feedback.
1. If you are selling a buy it now item for 1p eBay will not let you list a quantity of more than one item. You have to have a minimum of 99p to use buy it now with a quantity of more than one. This is a problem because every item you list costs a minimum of 25p to list. You could list 100 buy it now items at 1p each, but after they are all sold you owe ebay £25.00. Are 100 sales worth £25.00?.
If you list an item in your eBay store you can have multiple quantities of a 1p buy it now item! And you are only charged a one time 1p listing fee, (you could have a quantity of 1000) you are charged 8p per every item that sells. So if you sell 100 of these items you will have 100 sales and you will owe eBay £8.01. thats £8.01 loss not profit!
2. If you list the item in your eBay store - the item is not shown in search results and therefore hardly anyone will see your 1p listing unless they can somehow find there way to your eBay store.... There is a way to have your buy it now 1p item on the regular search results with multiple quantities that will be purchased from your eBay store. Let's say you list a picture you would put "1p Picture wallpaper and screensaver!" it's a great title because it has the exact keywords that someone will use to find such an item. You found it!
