This week we summarize eBay’s workshop designed to help sellers adjust to electronic-only payments and review eBay’s policy requiring sellers to specify shipping in listings. Plus, we highlight four alternative selling sites.
During the workshop one seller did ask if eBay would charge a Final Value Fee (FvF) based on the total of the item price plus shipping once eBay migrated to all electronic payments and checkout. Currently, eBay sellers do not pay a FvF to eBay that is derived from the cost of shipping charged to buyers, only the item sale price. Neither eBay or PayPal representatives answered this question, which was repeated by other sellers but seemingly ignored during the remainder of the workshop.
