I don't know when this practice started But I noticed a rise in my account charges. I closely checked my account balance and noticed a fee charged on shipping. I phoned Ebay and asked what this charge was and was told by the customer service rep. that it was a 1 percent charge. Doing simple math would easily tell you it was not 1 but 9 percent. If I charge the customer actual shipping now I am losing 9 percent on every transaction. This practice does not seem fair for those of us who charge honest shipping rates. The fee obviously was instated so ebay would make money on those people who charged way more for shipping and sold their item cheap to avoid high final sale fees. Putting a charge on the shipping was not the answer as it now drives up shipping rates for buyers. Volume sales for Ebay should be the key to higher profits NOT GREED and higher rates.

courtnie green, United States2 years ago Comments: Yes, I was receiving very high seller fees and went on to see why they were so crazy. It showed that my items sold were being charged insertion fee, final value fee(after item was sold) , and a final value fee on my shipping amount I charged to send the item also. In other words my low shipping charges to keep my buyers happy and my stars looking great is costing me. I am actually in the end paying a % of the buyers shipping cost myself. Wow, that is just not right! How is a person to even make it selling on Ebay anymore? Courtnie
