So many scammers on eBay nowadays anyway. For now, I go to craigslist first and if it doesn't sell there I go to Amazon.

Not just 10%. For a fixed price listing, it's used to be much much cheaper in fees. Now, you pay the same.

So, say, for a $2000 digital camera, now the fee is $71.50. It'll be $200 after the new fee. Ouch.

This page tells you old and new fees:

Ebay will not make more money by doing this. Sellers will go elsewhere...

i only sold the odd item on ebay but stopped years ago because their fees were a pita

no small guy is going to use them and if they do, they won't repeat

i only buy on ebay now, but looks like that will probably slow down as finding bargains will be harder because they wipe out the little guy and the big guys aren't were the bargains are at

i love how their new fees page show how GREAT it's to have all these free listing and 5000 free auction blah blah blah and then toward the end they didn't really mention they increased the rate, they just list it -- basically.. here're some candies, here's a popcorn. Here's a ANAL RAPAGE!!!

This should be thumbed up, not down, to let everyone aware of it.
