New eBay Fees Anger Sellers

In what some eBay sellers have dubbed "eBay math," a series of rate changes are being seen as rate hikes, according to this Forbes.com story.

"Under the old rules, for example, selling a purse at auction for $25 would have cost the seller $1.91, including 60 cents for listing the item plus eBay's commission of $1.31," the Forbes story said. "Under the new structure, the seller would pay $2.74, including 55 cents to list the item plus a higher commission of $2.19."
