    The book was sold to a member here, and so ebay considered the total cost of 39.99Ä 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.

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

    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.

    I'd like to know that too. They say the transition will take a number of years.
    I'm sure if there is intelligent life somewhere out there in the universe, they are wise enough to stay away from us.

    I forgot that eBay sold Paypal a few years back, that explains that, but that would be annoying for ebay users who dont necessarily want to use/trust another payment platform...

    edit : "Customers will have the option of using Adyen on its site or going off-site to pay via PayPal."

    So it only happened because the buyer used a credit card? Haha, i got a tax form for one transaction on eBay for selling a book I spent 900 dollars on. I guess Iím never going to sell anything on eBay ever again.

    Still ruminating on this: And now Iím out that one book! After I pay tax on that as income, Iím going to have sold it for a price I wouldnít have sold it for! God-fucking-damnit.

    I have not researched these regulations, but it seems to me that you should be able to offset the sale price by how much you paid for the item. If you paid $900 for the book and you sold it for $1000, you should only be responsible for the $100 profit.

    My understanding is that PP doesn't issue the 1099k unless you have 20K in payments received, AND 200 transactions. I know because in 2013, because of the fundraiser (and personal sales) I exceeded both thresholds and thus received one. It was a bit of a PITA, but with the help of a tax preparing friend, I suffered no financial harm.

    Thatís what I used to think, but I sold one book on eBay in 2017, and received a 1099 from PayPal for the exact amount of that sale.

    So the sale was by someone who used a Credit Card rather than PP?
