    paying ebay fees hint

    i just figured this out the other day after i got a ebay message saying I owed nearly $200 in ebay fees for the month. So for now on i am going to my account and paying the fees after the item is sold. Not sure if its a trick or Im out of the loop. you tube has a video on how to do it.

    I have had the same thought and went to account for the reason I was being billed for a huge fee. It turned out is was the record of the fees I had been billed during the month and was not a bill to be paid.

    Good luck.

    $200 means you sold $2000 that month. I just got my bill for $65. I always just leave extra in my paypal account knowing it will be pulled in the middle of the month.

    they REALLY should be doing it like the old days where it automatically pulled the amount off the sale...you would get a true NET proceeds. Granted some people like to float this money, but it should be an option. I am sure it has to do with fees or similar from credit card companies or any number of others ways they felt they could improve profitability.
    PROFIT is made when you BUY/ACQUIRE NOT when you sell

    I usually pay at the end of the month but had to use the money for an emergency and lost track on how much i sold so hopefully on regular work payday I will get it paid and get caught back up.
