Totally disagree with selling off ebay - if you don't like the fees, don't list. Simple as. The fees are transparent, you know what you are getting into so pay the fees or don't bother.
If, as a seller you know the price you want, do a BIN and have done with it, saves pi55ing geniune bidders off if you are going to do a deal off eBay....
I sell a lot of vinyl on eBay, thousands of items. I never do deals off eBay and my regular customers know they can trust me. When I list an item, it runs to the end - highest bidder wins. I pay the fees becuase I know I can't get a similar price by selling elsewhere.
I can't say I like paying the fees, but I'm grown up enough to know the score - eBay has cornered the market and everyone goes there......
