I swear that eBay fee's never used to be that high. 10% final valuation fee is a joke! I used to love selling the odd thing on eBay and generally speaking you'd get a decent price for it but with eBay taking 10% at the end, as well as the insertion fee, and then Pay-pal jump on the bandwagon charging you too! Its ridiculous.
There are so many horror stories out there too. My house mate sold two things on eBay, both of them went "missing" in the post. I sold something recently and it was claimed the item was damaged on arrival. Its unlikely the Royal Mail is to blame, more likely is a chancer at the other end trying to get their money back and a free item!
The layout of the website has become harder to use too- it used to be so easy and straight forward.
I'm afraid to say that i'll be steering clear of eBay from now on.
