Everytime I have figured out how to make a small profit retailing on eBay, eBay very quickly finds a new way to take it.

If my net profit starts at $20, after pricing items to remain competitive,+ ebay fees,+ Paypal fees, and S&H, I am lucky to gross $5.

You have to sell mass items at a very small profit to make any money at all. And yet they keep raising fees and changing policies so fast no one has time to actually sell while trying to become re-compliant to endless new policies.

I know what you mean. I am a big St. Jude supporter and there is a brand new site only a month or so old that only charges .50 cents to post, no end fees and free site stores, and they donate a portion of all posts etc. to St. Jude. They are just now growing, but I admire what they do. It's a brother and siter team. I read an article about them on the internet. Try them out. It takes a lot of guts to take on ebay, but to have a big enough heart to want to give at the same time...I LIKE IT.

Hi Guys
Just found a new auction site

www.auctionxtremes.com

Give it a try, low fees if at all any, has shop front yearly fees and end of auction fees at around 1.7% to 2.9%
Everything else is free
