Wow... 10% seems high. How do "stores" make money?

Yeah 10% seems high. However, from a free market perspective, my threshold for pain must be higher because even with this knowledge I would still use eBay again for this kind of thing. I wonder if it is 10% for eBay motors...

Stores use a subscription model.

The Guitar's and Basses category of musical instruments has different rules. That is absolutely hilarious. Maybe because they are higher volume?

For non-stores, it is 10% up to a $750 maximum.

Cars: https://www.ebay.com/help/selling/selli ... es?id=4127

Flat $125 fee for a car that sells over $2,000 and $60 below that. Not terrible.

WiFi module net: $49-$4.90+$7.60-$0.76-$7.35 = $43.59.
So the net on the first two was a total of $123.52.

I just shipped the Y-main and using the 10% and assume I lose a buck or two on the shipping due to the fee, that should net me another ~$83.50 for a total net so far of $207.02. Not bad right?
By the way, that one guy who complained - I did not accept the return and have heard zero back over the past month+ so I assume that is closed.

Good news: just sold the main board. I dropped the price to $100 + S&H and received $108.75 just now. More math:
Main board net: $100+$8.75-$7.40-$10.875 projected fees = $90.47

That brings the total net profit to $297.49. Still have two items left after that. Actually I have a lot more, but two items are on eBay and in boxes ready to ship, I mean.

Just sold the X-main board.

X-main net: $45 part + $11.75 shipping paid - $9.26 shipping cost - $5.68 eBay fees = $41.81 net.

That brings the total net profit to $297.49 + $41.81 = $339.30.

Just one part left that I have currently listed. Only asking $40 so it would be my lowest return part. Haven't decided if I want to list any other parts or just throw the rest away.
