One thought on “New Calculator Helps eBay Sellers Price for Profitability”

  1. There’s far less profit on eBay than other platforms because of seller desperation driving prices lower. Not pricing miscalculations. No sales mean sellers compete against each other to see who can be cheapest. That’s what happens when there’s no buyers. Buyers on eBay have been conditioned for years to be cheap and won’t pay what an item is worth or what it’s priced elsewhere. Then eBay feeds this bottom-feeding mentality all over the site by trying to push buyers to the cheapest junk regardless of condition. You offer something New/Like New/Very Good, then eBay is showing absolute junk and often unrelated items on your own listing pages for cheap prices, most of it Good/Acceptable condition. It’s as if this is eBay’s plan to be begging for a cheap sale so they can collect some fees. Just not what you’re selling, someone else’s cheap junk instead.
