I started on eBay selling small value items for fly tying so that fishermen could buy reasonable quantities of materials at fair prices. Now with Ebay and Paypal charges coupled with postal costs it is almost impossible to sell small items at a reasonable cost. If I sell something for 99 pence I pay 10p for the insertion cost and 10p to Ebay when sold. In addition there is a Paypal fee of 26p and postage for large letter is 58p, envelope 2p, label 2p and additional packaging 2 p. These costs add up to £1.10 and that does not include materials.
Does someone out there know a better way to sell small items without everyone else making huge profits out of us?
