There's a daily deposit drop into your bank account. Usually takes about 2 days to get your money after payment. Still don't see itemized deductions for fees though. Itt just deducts automatically I guess. I won't be surprised to get a bill at the end of the month even though it says billing has been discontinued on my accountHow's is it working? Does the money automatically show up in your bank account from each sale? Just curious, I was thinking of listing something and wondered how it was going.
It’s called a captive audienceDoes anyone else think eBay's fees are way too high? If it were an auction house and they were promoting, auctioning and posting your items then yes, 15/20% is fine, but what does ebay do for their 13.6% ?? I think 5% would be a fairer.
I've noticed in the last few years more sellers are now selling on facebook groups. Personally, I sell common items on Facebook and harder to find on ebay and do most my buying on ebay.
Sounds like shill bid account.A good friend has a larger ebay account that is on managed payments as of Sept , but then they have a second Ebay account (smaller account, sell a little on it , but also buy on it) but that account isn't on managed payments yet ( so smaller sale payments are going thru PP). Pre Sept 2020 , both were on PP payments
Could be - I don't know Adam's friend. Personally, I think it's a bit rude to cast dispersions like this, though, and by extension, to me, since I had asked the question that Adam was responding to.Sounds like shill bid account.
Didn't mean to cast anything towards you or your friend. Whenever I hear someone has 2 ebay accounts , just throws a red flag for me. I can't think of any reason I would need 2 accounts.Could be - I don't know Adam's friend.

We talk all the time about shill bidding and most of us believe that it goes on. There are other sites that have mentioned users that have gotten flagged by eBay shill bidding activity and shut down. Ebay tracks the IP addresses that accounts use (even though it's argued to what level they can and do), in addition to other geolocation techniques, so unless Adam's friend regularly performs rerouting and other methods to hide the second account, shilling often and frequently will get caught.
To be clear, we've got seven accounts in our household for different individuals and different purposes. We have never shill bid.
omg a “scalper”! Wait till the moral police climb down from their horses and condemn this immoral behavior. How dare anyone buy and sell things for more than they paid. Except for them of course, who collect solely for the good of the communityIn other words, he's still performing WORK to then make some dollars in the end. He obtains the items in a legit manner ( Buy it now, or by bidding....and winning the auction). He may put out $70 to get the item, 40 minutes in time cleaning them up, fixing a part , resists them on ebay for $140 . To some consumers it beats paying $225- 400 for a new item , so the buyer still benefits buy getting the item for about 1/2 of what it would cost new ( yet it may be used ... maybe 10-15% less life left in it in comparison to a new item).
He knows the market , he's passionate about the product to the Nth degree , and he knows the marketplace of what a certain model is valued at . He sells year round , but it's pretty much March thru October is his strong months.
