We've sold on eBay for you:
Our service is designed to get you higher prices
We make our money from commission so we get paid more when you do. When you sell with us, you pay:-
25% of the sale price with a minimum commission of £25 per item listed
10% reduced commission rate on amounts over £1,000 per item
Transaction costs - ie eBay, Paypal and Shipping & Handling costs (see table below)
If required, collection is £15 per box or quoted separately for a van. Rejected items returned free.
No additional listing, disposal, storage, or appraisal fees on items up for sale
What It Costs
Collection and Return
We charge £15 for a courier collection (see How We Collect for service details). You may also send your items at your own expense by appointment. For large items sold in situ we charge a £50 fee to send a lister to you.
Where we decline to sell an item, we will return it free of charge if we have collected it, or store it at cost until you collect if you sent it in. In either case, we also offer a free disposal service - we have a long-standing partnership with Oxfam and prefer to donate, reuse and recycle to using landfill - just let us know within a week so we don't sent it back to you or incur storage charges.
We charge 25% of the sale price with a minimum of £25 per item accepted for sale
We have a reduced rate of 10% on the amount in excess of £1,000 for high-value items
On sale, you pay transaction costs (just as you would if you sold it yourself). These are calculated* according to the specific circumstances of the transaction:-
|Marketplace fees||On eBay: 12% (max £30 per item)||Off eBay: half this amount|
|Payment fees||Paypal / Credit Card: 20p+3.4%||Otherwise no charge|
|Shipping & Handling cost||£5 for items upto 2kg under 1m long||£10 for items 2kg-20kg under 1m long||£25 for all other items|
Note that if an item is returned to us then the marketplace and payment fees are refunded but the postage fees are not. Where we need to refund any premium postage fees or return postage fees to the buyer, we will absorb these for you.
|Example 1: If you sold a pair of Louboutin shoes for £300 using our service, sold on eBay and paid for using Paypal, then you pay £75 commission and £45.40 transaction costs.
Your proceeds would be £179.60
|Example 2: If you sold a pair of B&W floor-standing speakers for £2,500 using our service, sold through our own shop and paid in cash, then you would pay £400 commission plus £40 transaction costs.
Your proceeds would be £2,060.
|Example 3: If you sold a Tiffany brooch for £1,200 using our service, and the buyer returned it, and it sold for £1,100 on eBay, paid by cheque, then it's:- £375 commission plus £40 transaction costs.
Your proceeds would be £685.
|Example 4: If you sold a Top Shop top for £20 using our service, sold on eBay and paid by Paypal. It's £25 commission plus £8.28 transaction costs. You would owe us £13.28. We strongly recommend that you do not consign items to us which will sell for less than £25.|
IMPORTANT NOTES: Once we've done the work to create your listing and put it live on eBay, if you choose to withdraw your item prior to sale then the £25 minimum commission is still charged, but there are no transaction fees to pay. If your item sells for less than £25, then the £25 minimum commission is still charged. This means that it could cost you up to £25 per item if your items do not find buyers. We may choose to decline to sell items which we estimate will not fetch £25 but sales require a willing buyer and that is out of our control: we cannot guarantee whether items will sell or what price they will achieve. We will reduce the price on your item over time if we do not see interest in it. If it reaches an auction at 99p and still attracts no bids, then we may buy the item for 99p to close the sale off - this will incur a £25 minimum commission charge but no transaction fees. We strongly recommend that you do not consign items that will not sell for more than £25.
*Exact marketplace costs are complex. To keep things simple, we use the formulae on this page which are based on what eBay and Paypal charge private sellers plus the cost of the VAT we have to charge you. We absorb any difference.
