As a newer seller on eBay, I echo CoinGremlin's sentiments regarding the charges. For everything I sell, I pay a "listing" fee, a "final value" fee, and a PayPal fee. I don't like all these fees either, but it's still the most economical way for part-time sellers to get enough exposure on their items to make a decent sale. And it's certainly more than I would get from dealers. And, yes, I found that a slight S&H markup covers the fees. I don't see a big issue with this as long as it's not exorbitant. I'm not trying to profit on the shipping, but I AM trying to recover my costs along with some of those fees. Once you accept eBay for what it is, I think most would agree that it's a decent alternative for small or part-time buying and selling.
