Ebay fees are bit more complex for that.

Not really if you know basic math and how to properly do it.

I sometimes take a pen and paper and figure it out on the paper. But to each their own.

I only do it sometimes to make sure the fees are correct and when I am bored.

oh wow thanks, I love that calculator site. It has everything correct. Right down to the profit or loss you make.

I just book marked it to my browser. I think it should be sticky(ed).
Where is GreenBean when you need her, HEY GREENBEAN!!!!

That's what I started using as well. Rolbes had better layout, but this one is good as well.

Default Rolbe eBay's calculator is better than Newlifeauctions own

I use to always use the newlifeauctions calculators until one day I decided to use the one by Ryan Rolbe and liked it much more. One such reason is because the reverse calculator works very well and takes into account the cost of one's item.

For the newlifeauctions calculator, for a fixed price listing format, I put in $10 in the reverse calculator and nothing else above and it's telling me that I need to set a selling price of $11.96. So, I put $11.96 in the BIN field, and $0 for the item cost and am told that my net profit is $9.49 and in the reverse calculator I am now told I should have a selling price of $12.54. I go back and enter this amount in the BIN Price field and NOW I am shown $10 above for Net Profit. Why wasn't I given this price from the very beginning?

Also, if I first put in $20 in the Item Cost field and then I put $10 in the Reverse calculator, I am still told that I should have a selling price of $11.96. How can I make a profit of $10 by selling an item for $11.96, which cost me $20 to acquire?!

And finally, for auctions, it shows the incorrect final value fee for the category Business and Industrial. The final value fee for any auction is 9% regardless of the category (I believe the only excepton might be stuff sold on eBay motors).

Sad to hear of his passing. He was a valuable asset to the eBay/Paypal seller community.

Not sure I understand this at all.

I'm a 'thicko' where computers are concerned and it took me 10 minutes in Excel to create my own. What am I missing here?

I suppose his services were convenient for those too lazy to create their own Excel spreadsheets like you GT.

His stuff was updated for both EB & PP & other platforms.

Yes, I think this is really old calculator. Well I used this too before but now I found new one with similar design. The best thing is that this new tool is updated with latest eBay fees and it is free without any donations or ads. You can check out if you want.
