I was wandering around the seller dashboard the other day and realised that I have sales of over 60k since 2002 (that includes 2 boats) but even without them its still over 20k in my pocket that I would not have had.
Plonkers and rip off merchants on ebay wind me up, as do the ever increasing fees (remember when it was just 1.5% final value ?) but the alternative is sticking items on Gumtree or Loot where they will take months to sell and realise a significantly lower price.
