Hello everyone...what a week! Sunshine everywhere till today and we are having mini thunder Storms... all kinds of racket outside and then a little down pour..then somemore Thunder and lightening... I kinda like it if it would just not make more mud to deal with....it would be really soothing...
Do any of you sell on ebay like I do? Well once again Ebay is going to slam us with a really big slug in the face with this round of new Final fees. So get ready this fee hike is going to take some real thinking on how to make up the difference because sellers and buyers lose on this one.
Ebay is going to start CHARGING A FINAL FEE ON ALL SHIPPING MONEY PAID TO SELLERS on top of final fees on item sold.
I guess they couldn't find another way to rip sellers off with fees so they decided they would take it from someplace else and that someplace else is the money paid to us for shipping the buyers items.
So now we must figure our how much more to add to the handling fee to cover the difference. Which will be charged a final fee as well. No win situation totally.
The biggest rip off will be if you ship international. EBay will charge there 11% on the shipping funds paid to us. So if it cost $58 to ship an item Ebay will take $6.38 and then Paypal will take there % and we will have to pay the difference. If you sold the item for $25 and your profit margin was $5.00 you the seller just lost all your profit.
Just thought I would give any of you a heads up on the new final value fees coming up so you can make any adjustments you need to make to your listing Prices and handling fees to cover this loss we will be feeling soon...
Now on to better things... I've kinda been in a creative funk again...but this time I think it is more the urge to be outside playing in the flower gardens or yard then it is my desire to be shut in the shop...Boy is that a double edged sword.. the Sunshine regenerates me and makes me happy but if it shines I don't want to work in the shop I want to owrk outside... Caught myself Thinking about everything I wanted to do in the flower gardens last night when I should have been focusing on my creating thus I only turned out two gatherings... ugg...
But all in all it wasn't a horrible week in the Creating Dept... Enjoy the Sneak Peek...
