eBay announces (another) fee structure change
Responding to concerns from sellers, eBay has announced yet another fee structure change. This time, the listing fees for media including books, music, movies, and video games will go way down. The price for listing an item with a starting price less than a buck drops from $0.20 to $0.10. Sellers with starting bids of less than $10 will now be charged $0.25 instead of $0.40. And if you've got an item with a starting bid of under $25, you pay $0.35 instead of $0.60.
Since eBay is still raising the fees on final sales, in most cases sellers will still wind up paying owing eBay a little more. But today's announcement softens the blow. A little.
