    Im doing a bit of research about auction sites, and id like to know your pros and cons of a good auction site. It can be anything down to the usability to the way charges are applied, are they fair, or do you think they are a rip off?? it can be anything you like

    Feel free to rant.

    I like using ebay its great to sell my old tat and buy more tat! but the fees are a joke and as if that aint enough you then get charged to recieve the money through paypal who ebay own! i think they are greedy sods tbh they could reduce their fees and still make a mint. Selling a item for £1 i have to pay a 10p listing fee then 10p final value fee then 26p fee to paypal, so thats 46p in charges for a £1!
    Its all a bit much i think. i know if you start an auction for .99p its free to list but u still get ur other fees and you can only list 100 things in a month.
