I've listed my Auralic G2 on eBay using the 80% off final fees offer.

If I sell it for £2650 what are my fees?

I don't know what eBay actually charges at full price without any offer, that's the problem!

My general rule of thumb is fees are 10% so 80% off is 2%. There might be a basic small fixed charge like 10p and possibly a ceiling for cars etc but generally 2% is about right.

The final value fee is calculated as 12.8% of the total amount of the sale (which includes the item price, postage, taxes and any other applicable fees), plus a fixed charge of 30p per order.

Therefore, this calc, times by 0.2 of sale value.

This is how I understand it.

I wonder if the fees went up when they moved to eBay managed payments from PayPal. 12.8% sounds close to the old fees plus PayPal fees. Just enough under for them to say sellers are better off 🧐

Although it seems wrong, from my experience the actual charge under the 80% reduced fee offer actually works out to approximately 4% of the final sale price including the postage. So if you want to know what you will approximately pay in fees multiply the total sale price including postage by 0.04
So if you sell for £2650 your fee deduction will be approximately £106.00

My logic
I recently sold an item for £1375 + £19.45 postage = £1394.45 (total sale amount)

eBay payed me £1340.60 after fees meaning they deduced £53.85 or 3.86% of the total sale price.(53.85/1394.45 X 100)

I have also recently sold two other items using the reduced fee offer and in both cases the deduction approximated 4%

My view is that 13 percent is too high a price to pay for a high ticket item but 4 seems very fair.
Bottom line, one thing eBay does is achieve market value at any given time.
