    The book was sold to a member here, and so ebay considered the total cost of 39.99 to calculte the commission, therefore the commission was 8% of the price+shipping.

    Apparently it's like this since 2014, but still annoying! Need to take into account that when setting up a delivery price !
    There was a time when eBay didn't charge a percentage of the shipping fee. Of course people started taking advantage of that by selling cheap and charging outlandish prices for shipping.

    Now eBay and PayPal both get full fees for the total order exclusive of taxes.

    I am interested by a concert that takes place in Paris on my upcoming birthday, but turns out that all tickets seems to be sold, on all websites.

    I have noticed that someone sells 2 tickets on ebay at a not too expensive price (if I can sell back the second ticket).
    We all have heard about not buying tickets on the secondary market as they could be fake, so my question is : if i buy tickets on ebay and pay via paypal, can I complain afterwards if I cannot attend the concert?
    What kind of proof could I provide?

    It however SEEM fine as the seller has about 300 feedback and a 100% rating, all of the sales being concert tickets...

    If the tickets are fake, and you are denied entry to the event, you certainly can file a dispute with ebay. Scan the tickets before the concert so that you have your own image of them. If they are fake, they could be confiscated, and all you have is a story.

    I often do a simple search for "Stephen King" with newly listed as my sorting criteria. In the past, the date and time of the posting was listed on the search results. I don't see it anymore.
    Puzzling.

    My search still shows the date and time about the same level as the price but on the right side.

    Looks like it might be Firefox. Doesn't happen with Chrome.

    I just downloaded Chrome and my eBay search also did not show the date and time. Weird.

    Mine doesn't show the date and time on some searches, but does on others. I've noticed it, but couldn't figure out why. I use Chrome.
