ebay fees too high

Last week I got hit with $83.00 e-bay sales fees. I did sell Darkness at Noon, Travels With My Aunt, and a few other books. Didn't sell my collectible poetry book, or my hundred year old copy of an opera libretto.

The fees are destroying my profit margin. It's great to sell a book for $19.99, but my costs and the time investment makes the payoff less than minimum wage.

I have to re-think my ebay strategy.

At least my Amazon and Half shops are doing well.
