O/T E BAY SELLER FEES

Post by morganman » Mon Jul 06, 2020 1:39 am

What a rip off- Between flea bay and PP the fees add to 20-22 %
Guess their learning from the old heritage auctions at 20%
At least heritage works at selling and does negociate on larger deals

This coin deal is a mess,with rough mkt and designed to steal collectors /coin owners
hard earned cash, by whatever means possible. Why would a seller due all the work
of pictures, descriptions and e bay rules, just to be shafted with 15-30 days return policies

Sadly fleabay is many sellers only way out - supplying exposure to help sell
Small to medium size collectors are simply screwed. ADD tax issues to coins and WOW
Rip off America at its best- It feels like being robbed at worse than gunpoint
MY RANT IS OVER NOW scott

Have not used them yet - but Greatcollections.com - 5% for coins under $1000 and 0% over $1000. Might be an option. Jim

Not a thing wrong with a good rant now and then especially when it's all true. eBay has been ripping everybody off for decades. I keep expecting them to disallow anyone from ending auctions early. Thanks Scott.🐍

I agree. And could add a few of my own horror stories.
To compound difficulties, they are no longer answering the phones (as though COVID is transmittable over phone lines.)
My image of the future includes more coin shows where the middle man is eliminated.

This is the perfect time for this rant as
My account was suspended yesterday
Accused of selling fake/counterfeit/replica coins
BUT there are genuine ANA coins
I even showed them to vam world first!
Got a consensus then listed them,
But someone complained and fleece bay took their side over me a 22 year seller/member!

FLEECE bay...
I’m done with them!

Hopefully others will see that they lie, and are extremely dishonest!
Hopefully fleecebay will become the NEXT Hindenburg... to crash and burn
Burn baby burn!
Use fleece bay at your own peril, you
Have been warned!

After 22 years they did that? Who can we complain to at EBAY? This just seems a bit extreme.

Thanks @blh74
I believe that writing / calling will do nothing, but if we band together and boycott that could be a wake up call for them, or maybe not!
Besides when you call your transfered
To a call center usually in India or Pakistan, and Ahmed doesn’t understand or really care, or his hands are tied, He Also will say I can’t connect you to someone in America that cares, even though this happened here, and not there!

Boycott boycott boycott
I like that we are allowed to sell our coins on vam world, even though it doesn’t have the reach fleece bay has, BUT, their is no middle man, that’s gotta be worth something!

Anyone remember the customer always being right? Not anymore!!
Fleece bay is always right, anyone else shut up and take it!

Not me! I say F U to fleecebay!
FORGET YOU....sure others were thinking something else!
My rant is finished!

I used to sell celeb. candid photos there decades ago, before all the magazines had them. If a celeb complained ebay would warn you and take the listing down. All these photos were outdoors in a public venue so tell me how they can complain. So one idiot celeb, I won't say Jack Black's name, complained. They yanked the listings. I had 3 sets up. That got me kicked off. Can't have three complaints. Even though these were all put up the same time. Screw ebay. I made them a ton of money and then I'm gone because of one idiot that doesn't understand what in public means.🐍

I signed up and it was real easy, only took a few minutes. A better deal for buyers and sellers.
