The new ebay fees are to high. They end up charging like 10% so if your item only makes you 10% profit your profit just went to ebay. Then if paypal was used your item just took a loss! Why even bother selling on ebay? Also to many non paying bidders. Ebay gets paid no matter if your item sells or not. If your item doesn't sell the 1st time ebay says they will refund your money if the item sells the 2nd time. Get a non paying bidder you lost your listing fees because that is not refunded. Ebay needs a system that charges non paying bidders!

Fees can be figured out here auctionbytes.com

Auctions are contractually binding so recouping $ should be a matter for the courts IMHO.

But the new feedback structure is terrible. Just shoving this stuff in their customers (which is who the sellers are) faces is shameful.

eBay should start treating their customers as stockholders.
They should have voted on this.

Auctions are NOT contractually binding! In fact auctions are not even a contract. I found out the hard way, it had gotten me into trouble selling on ebay and it cost me about $100,000 to get me out of trouble. Does ebay do any thing to help sellers out of trouble? NO! They keep letting sellers offer items for sale that ebay knows is illegal. If you don't know what I'm talking about look for Florida land for sale on ebay. It is illegal to sell land in Florida for under $50,000 unless The State of Florida has approved your land to be sold. To get approval you must pay some government employee a plane ticket & hotel stay to look at your land. It is also illegal to sell land located any where outside of Florida to any person living in Florida, again you would have to pay a plane ticket & hotel stay before you get permission to sell your land. So it is illegal to sell land on ebay that is located in Florida or to sell land located outside of Florida to anyone located in Florida with out getting permission from the State. Florida Chapter 498 Division of Land Sales The State tried to get me for $4 million for $300K in sales. By the way I was selling land for $2k to $17k. When I was talking to the investigator I said to him, what you are telling me is it was illegal for me to sell land for $2k but if I sold the same property for $50k or more it is ok? He said that is correct. I said that is idiotic & stupid, what is the reasoning? He said if someone is dumb enough to buy that same land for $50k or more than that is stupidity on them. I said the law should be the other way around because if someone bought something for $50k when it could be bought for $2k then the person selling at $50k is ripping off the buyer. If you get caught selling FL land on ebay the State is going to try to fine you $40k for each property sold, $10k for the offering, $10k for the sale, $10k for not having an approved FL contract and another $10k for another reason.

Old Stocks: it would seem to me that the burden is *not* on eBay to find out if each of those sellers has registered their land.

Auctions are contractually binding if they are legal.

If it is illegal to sell land, then the auction would not be contractually binding.
