Geez, about 150 items listed currently, thinking, 7.9 percent compared to the 5.25 percent without a store??

why the big difference, I pay for the privilege of being charged more?

What are the benefits?

Hey AustGarageSales,

I think you'll find this quite helpful>>> Alice recently wrote a blog about opening an eBay store and its advantages...

Did you know that most sellers who open an eBay store experience a 25% increase in their sales within just 3 months?* Amazing, right?

For a lot of sellers, opening an eBay store is a natural progression in building their business. For that reason, this week I put together this quick guide to helping you decide whether it's time for you to open an eBay store.

200 items times 5 cents for a premier store equals 10$ per month compared to 100 dollars for listing without a store.

10$ plus 50 for the store equals 60 so you save 40$

But whats funny is that if you listed before the new store policy it would have only cost you 70$ and with the new FVFs its a wash or if you sell more you end up paying more.

Plus if nothing is selling in the past you would have listed less and paid less but now with a store they have a monthly fee and if you decide to sell less and drop the store you may still pay the same. So basically its a back door side gate way to get all sellers to pay a monthly fee of 50$
Which is part of the reason their stock went up.

Anyway that's my rant.

Yes this is the question i have asked myself is it better to list a few hopefully selling items per week or open a store with a heap of hopefully selling items
at a preminiun price for longer and with a higher visablity
Thanks
