eBay cuts prices to woo more sellers

It appears that eBay is feeling the heat from competitors Amazon.com. Amazon has racked up a huge number of buyers and sellers thanks in part to the company's successful Prime service. EBay is still the most popular online auction site out there, but over the years has raised a significant amount of ire from sellers over their high fees and practices at both its auction site and its PayPal payment portal.

As a result, eBay has announced that it's lowering its fees for sellers by simplifying its final value fees with a percentage fee levied on each item sold that varies depending on product category. As it stands now these final value fees are a percentage of the items selling price. The online auction giant has also announced that some of its listing fees will also be eliminated with most changes taking effect on April 16.
 
"For most of our sellers the complexity of our fees were keeping them from being on eBay and preventing them from having full transparency into their profitability from selling on eBay," said Michael Jones, vice president of merchant development.

Sellers who list fewer than 12,250 items during any given month will see lower fees according to ChannelAdvisor CEO Scot Wingo.

Under eBay's new plans, sellers will get 50 free item listings per month and if the item sells, eBay will take 10% of the sale price, which still seems rather high. High-volume sellers will see new final value fees that range from 4% to 9% depending on the product category.

What are you whining about? You get an average of 5 new processes on your PC...for free!

Mac users would probably be charged for them. Which they would happily do.
