    Default PriceCharting.com 0% final value fee VS eBay 10% final value fee

    I could be wrong about this but I just signed up for pricecharting.com and from what I am reading, they don't have a final value fee. All there is is the PayPal fee of 2.9% plus 30 cents. Unless I am mistaken and they mean to say that pricecharting.com takes 2.9% AND PayPal takes 2.9%, but even if that's the case, that's a hell of a lot better than eBay's 10% (plus PayPal's 2.9%)

    well eBay it was nice knowing ya

    Very interesting. I'll give this a try in the not too distant future.
    Though I deal with eBay, it's always a pain in the ass when they try to "improve" things for sellers. I mean, right now, I can go into my seller's listings in at least three different ways, and each displays things differently. WTF, why so confusing and unuser-friendly? I recently tried to list an ipad and accessories for a friend on his account, and I had no fucking idea what was going on, it was so aggravating and took almost an hour to get it how we wanted it - we were including the Apple Pencil so eBay forcing the iPad to be listed under "accessories", among other issues. And I have no doubt that eBay's algorithms for returning search results to buyers are weighted to favor certain sellers. Fuck eBay.

    I have noticed that over the last 12 years since I signed up for eBay, the design has changed, things are harder to find, etc. My main beef with eBay is that they legitimize counterfeit video games and look the other way when people complain.

    I will still use eBay for buying but I will be selling video games on PriceCharting.com whenever possible from now on.
