eBay cuts seller fees—or does it?

(Page 3 of 3)

Sellers of low-priced items could

pay a lot more. A CD merchant,

for example, who sells a $3 CD and

charges $3 for shipping pays eBay

45 cents (15% of $3) under the current

structure, whereas a month from now

she will pay 78 cents (13% of $6). An

extra 33 cents may not seem like much,

but for sellers who sell 100,000 CDs a month this could

have an enormous impact.
