The cheapest store type that gives you a lower fee-the basic store level-costs $27.95 per month (less if you sign up for an entire year) and lowers your fees for the coin category from 10% to 6.15%. This means you will need to have at least $726 in sales for a month to make the store fee worth it.
As far as the free listings promo, that is real. It allows you to list up to 200 items without paying an insertion fee. You will still pay final value fees (10% without a store) if any of those listings sell.
A store subscription will provide you with 250 free (no insertion fee) Buy-It-Now and 250 auction listings. A store also allows you to have a store page where you can categorize items within it. It also allows for some additional customization like adding your logo. The main benefit of a store however are the insertion free listings.
You will have to pay Final Value Fees when your item sells which in Coins & Paper Money category is 10% of the sale price. Other costs/expenses you have to consider are shipping, mailing supplies and PayPal fee (if applicable).
@Endeavor generally speaking I agree the store is not worth it for 10-20 items. However, there are cases where it is worth the fee (even if one only subscribes for a single month-don't forget to cancel the automatic renewal too!) if those ten items are all expensive (like if one is selling ten 1 oz gold coins-just a generic example as eBay may not be the right venue for such coins).
