    what is the commission for a car sale for EPN? is it half of the $50.00 final value fee, or is it a percent of the total sale?

    Just what boomer said. It is 50% of all fees ebay makes on an auction. Half of listing fee's, etc plus half of the FVF.

    so basically there is a set amount on how much you can make on each car listed...for example...it is only $40.00 to list, and $50 for FVF on cars? so the most you could make would be $20 + $25?

    Plus the possible advanced lead of the person who buys the car

    no turbotec....the fvf of a car for ebay is $109. so thats 54.33 for you on the fvf alone...so once you include the listing fee which normally is 40 bucks or so (so 20 for you), upgrades to the listing, etc etc...it easily could be $70+ per car.

    I've sold a $10,000 US motorcycle on one of my sites and my commission was around $50 or so. My understanding is that it is %50 of the eBay fee from the initial listing fee + the final sales fee that we get.

    if i have an auction end and no one met the reserve price - do i pay any fees? is it better to cancel the auction or let it run so no one hits the reserve?

    Yeah, but the crapper of it all is now that ebays gone rogue on their own, the 7 day cookie aint worth a crap right now. So if your gonna make any real money, better make sure your target is mighty hungry. I had some bans sites runnin through various classifieds and natural search rankins that have had about a 90% drop in profit, then what it use to do running through cj and the 45 day cookie. Aint lookin to pretty right now for bans unless you got yourself some fanatics on a buying frenzy for the particular product. Not enough time on the cookie to market the high ticket items to people who like to think about it, or wait till the last minute to cast their bid. Especially when some of the auctions run past 7 days.

    if you let it run and no one hits the reserve then you are fine. there is no final value fee.

    thanks oldenstyle!

    I didn't think I was crazy, just couldn't remember off the top of my head. So PJ has a 45 day cookie? I need to read the TOS and stuff a little more closely then...
