Hi Larry and welcome to the forum

In regards to setting your price on eBay

You need to know your exact product and all related costs associated with the sale of that product. That is the cost of the product itself, shipping, listing fee, selling fee, payment method transaction fee and any other related cost that will be incurred on the transaction chain. This of course gives you your total cost (your bottom line cost)

Once you have your cost price, you will know where you need to set your eBay price. Of course if you are using the auction format, then you can choose to start your auction at your cost price to cover your expenses or if using the Buy It Now option, then working out what margin you want to make on the product.

Setting the price is really up to you, but my advice would be to research your competitors very carefully and use them as a guide to where you need to be on price to compete.

I Agree with Mark

use my salecalc tool for setting price $5 to $10 profit on top of the item you want which will include fees eg paypal ebay and other fees so you wont be out of pocket also make sure you include any shipping fees into your price. unless it free shipping worldwide.
