    Over $300 for 3 items!:cool1: HP Touchpad, Nintendo DS, Oster Kitchen Center. Shipping was paid seperately so this is profit. Now to get rid of the second touchpad, Cuisinart food processor and palm tree bathroom set.
    Hopefully I clear $600.

    That is great! I wish I could sell and keep the profit in paypal but I spend it as soon as it's in there.

    Why are you getting rid of the touchpads? Just curious. I have 3 of them. I wish I had Ipads but I don't have the money for it. I have thought about selling 1 of them but I have 4 kids who sometimes all want to play with them at the same time.

    Just wondering, what are the PayPal and eBay fees?

    I have gotten into serious decluttering mode and have some things I have been thinking about selling in eBay (one is a Nintendo DS) but I have been reluctant because I am not sure how much I would clear after the fees.

    Great sell!!

    I've been an eBay member since 2000 and don't use it that much as the fees are insane. I sold a few things in October and paid about $80 in fees eBay, PayPal and now the shipping fees which I think is ridiculous I charged $6.80 shipping actual cost was over $7.00 and eBay charged me .50 I was out of pocket about $1.50. I only use ebay as a last resort now. I use Craigslist and a kids boutique for high end clothes.

    FEes are insane. Both from ebay and then paypal. And now shipping is higher. Everyday I hear another person tell me how ebay kicked them off. They claim for no reason. Just deleted their account.

    Good for you! I made about 200 the last 2 weeks :) there are ebay calculator apps you can download to determine profit.

    I usually figure between 13-18% in fees (paypal and ebay combined) depending on the final price of the item and whether it is listed as auction or BIN. I know some people think these fees are high, but my consignment sale fees are 30%, so 13% (and I can usually get a higher price on ebay) seems like a bargain for me.
