Default Can anyone confirm if EBay is taking 30%

Hi, new to the site, I am seeking opinions on just how hard EBay is screwing sellers. Itís difficult to asses the percentages they take seeing is they split charges as well as counting shipping costs as profit to boot. My loose tally of one months percentages show EBay taking 30% of sales. Does this sound right? Thanks. Also any thoughts on alternative selling platforms for vintage household and clothes. Thanks.

15% is more likely

Welcome to the forum friend.
I agree with yankee.
How did you get to the figure of 30%?

Ebay Final value fee for the item is 10-12%,if you are a poor seller,you could be paying 14%.
If you subscribe to a shop,.your fee could be lower,if you are a top rated plus seller,you get a 10% discount on item FVF but not shipping FVF.
Shipping fee is charged FVF as well,as back then when it was free,sellers decide to ask 99 cents for item and $65 for shipping,it is called fee avoidance,so now they split FVF between shipping and item.
There are fees for extra features when you list an item,like listing in 2 categories,promoted listings,but nowhere would it add up to 30 %.
Paypal also charges fee 30 cents transaction and 2.9-4.4 %
if your buyer files INAD,you will pay return shipping.
if he files a chargeback and you lose,there is a $20 chargeback fee.
if you did not pay the correct postage fee ,USPS will figure the extra postage fee,chargeD Ebay and Ebay will charge your seller account
