eBay is not a gold mine !

eBay is not necessarily an earner …

…. except of course, for eBay !! (and, er, possibly Royal Mail)


Using eBay seemed like a great way to get rid of unwanted stuff – I certainly had a degree of success with recent sales. What irritates is that around 40% of whatever you take goes in postage and fees. Beware. To make this work, you really need to do the maths before posting an item for sale – and don’t forget that their own bank – Paypal – also takes a sizeable cut of any money received. How people other than eBay make a living from it is perhaps more of a mystery 🙂
