PayPal fees are not the same as eBay fees, those come about a month later @15% of the selling price comming out of your bank account when you least expect it.

            True. I haven't sold on there in forever. Always seemed like more trouble than it was worth.

              ebay fees are ridiculously expensive. In order for me to sell a set of tail lights and still get $50 after fees, I need to sell the taillights for about $65-70 depending on if there is incentives running at the time or not.

                I sell a lot of stuff on ebay but I only use the BIN option. That way I can incorporate the fees into how much I sell for. The last few times I listed auction style I literally lost money. I really hope we can figure this out on here. That way we all have a chance with some of the cooler stuff. I try to get on here as much as possible so I can sometimes be the frst to see what is [FS]. Even then I have still missed out on stuff I would have doubled the sellers' money on.

                1. Honor system for buyers with a 250 post minimum (potentially shows tenure), negative feedback for non payers.
                2. Honor system for sellers also with a 250 post min.
                3. $1 increments under $50
                4. $5 increments under $150
                5. $10 increments over $150
                6. Every item must have a very explicit description with non blurry photos (both of these should eliminate any issues)
                7. Price and location is a must
                8. Shipping cost is a must
                9. Photos deleted at auction end.
                10. entire transaction is completely between the 2 involved parties
                11. PayPal only

                  ^ I see this, as it might work, with some rules applied, like above.

                  Still who would manage it all? Would this require a separate moderator? or would this fall on the shoulders of the FS area mod?

                      Admins can change your username so you keep all your posts..... I might have that ability now as well but I haven't tried

                      If no one from the future stops you from doing it, how bad of a decision can it really be?
