They keep screwing around with searches, adding modern to vintage. Just sold an EX '57 Yankees Team Card that is worth atleast $20 + s/h for $7, after fees shipping got $5 bucks for it. I'm done!

I quit as an eBay seller some 5 years ago. What took you so long? Oh, never mind. I just clicked on your eBay listings and you're still selling. \:\)

I still sell occasionally b/c I take pride in being able to list my own stuff, I don't need a consignor /dealer to sell my cards. Sometimes my collecting interest changes, sometimes I upgrade cards, sometimes I just stumble over a really good deal, etc. so I need an outlet to sell. If I ever make a few bucks profit I end up using it to buy more cards \:\) Anyway, because of the changes made to the searches I am going to shy away from the auction format.

i sell on Ebay, and HATE it with the fees and searches too!!!
I moved to Net54 BST threads and had better luck and use paypal gift most times.
And Yes, i still use Ebay. I try and factor the fees into the cost, but thats what deters the price.

I read yesterday that theres a function, that you can have the buyer pay the fees. Like a check-box.

I hear ya Pat, I still use ebay and for the most part I am happy. I switched to always having a min bid that I am ok with the card selling at. Like you a few years back I sold a card I had paid $54 in auction sell for $7 ouch, granted it had been won in an ebay auction from probstein auction so no telling.

My searches changed a while back but are still work for me.
