I was under the impression that selling on Ebay was cheap. A cost of "pence" has been mentioned by almost everyone I discussed it with. Ok I thought lets join the 21st century. I have just sold an item under the impression that my total cost would be the insertion fee. Bid mistake! I did not understand that Ebay would also take 10% AS WELL! Caveat emptor.
Selling on Ebay may be cheaper than some other methods but it is more expensive than it first seems.
