    Before I jump off the deep end.......

    Is ebay out of control?
    I just sold 2 items for a total of 302.00 & the ebay fees are 205.00!
    1 item sold for 150.00 the other 152.00 both are seadoo parts.
    So, before I write a nasty letter (like it will matter to them) whats my recourse?
    I've used ebay since 2000 & have sold LOTS of parts worth 3 times as much & NEVER have I had this huge fee!

    I never saw anything about final value fees!

    Ebay is in trouble big time

    They just announced laying off 10% of their workforce. The power
    sellers are leaving in droves. The rules are driving people nuts.

    Amazon, Craig's List, reg ecommerce sites rule!

    The market has spoken!

    So, am I screwed here? Can I just cancel the sale or have the buyers back out & do it through paypal? I'm about to smack the neighbors dog in a minute!

    Hello, thanks for waiting and welcome to eBay Live Help! My name is Jhoana. How may I help you?

    Hi, I have a question about final value fees

    8:50:46 PM AgentJhoana F.
    Oh I see. Go ahead, I'm listening.

    8:50:53 PM Customerjwalker000
    Item #230297731543

    8:51:12 PM Customerjwalker000
    I was charged 100.00 for a selling of 150.00

    8:51:58 PM Customerjwalker000
    am I missing something here? I have sold a lot of items since 2000 & have never had this before.

    8:52:56 PM AgentJhoana F.
    Oh I see. No worries! I'd be glad to check that for you.

    8:53:01 PM AgentJhoana F.
    Can I put you on hold for a minute or two to check on this?

    8:53:42 PM Customerjwalker000
    Thank you. Also, one more item was sold a few minutes after that one for 152.00 & was also charged 100.00 for it too.

    8:53:46 PM Customerjwalker000
    yes

    8:54:06 PM AgentJhoana F.
    Oh I see. Let me check that one too, please hold.

    8:54:21 PM Customerjwalker000
    Item 230297728051 is the other fee I have..

    8:54:25 PM Customerjwalker000
    Thank you

    8:54:51 PM AgentJhoana F.
    My pleasure!
