Seeing it more and more that items on eBay are taxed. Yet another reason to stick to this site and local listings for LD.

How much is it now in the USA?

eBay France is 8% selling fee inclusive of shipping costs + Paypal (3.9% + 0.30) so... 12~15% on average?

I believe it varies on the state which is hard to figure out. Like do you pay for just the state from the person you bought it from as well as the buyer's home state?

I know a site like reverb really laid it out clearly.
Reverb actually collects the taxes from the state the buyer is from.

Nice thing is that I'm now in Delaware, there are only a handful of tax free states here in the USA.
I can't help but smile every time I go a buy something and only pay that price.
39.99 you give them 2 twenty's and they give you a penny back :P

No taxes on my internet purchases since we have no sales tax :P

Now I'll have to jack up my prices since everybody will actually be saving from no tax when buying from me :lol:

The eBay fee here is 10% but I am talking about charging a sales tax. I had to pay tax on a knock-off remote that shipped from Texas. Which got me checking, asking friends etc and it seems like many more things are being taxed now. It's around another 9% to the buyer.

Actually the auction fees are 10% but they are sticking it to the seller with an 11% fee with BIN.
So that 11 along with 4 from paypal is 15% and along with the shipping fees they suck out that's another 1% so you are actually paying 16%
after all is said and done.

Very sad one, I just bought a guitar amp from a newbie who listed free shipping, it came to 45 just for shipping and I won the amp at 55.
He got burned to say the least.
Would have made more money at a yard sale for 30 bucks.....

It's category based. Movies are more now, games are still 10%. My last two sales were a sealed PS2 game for $22 (fee $2.20) and an anime DVD set where the BD is coming for $45 (fee $5.40 which is 12%).

More and more I find well...less reasons to buy and sell on eBay. Agree that local sales are really becoming much more appealing between eBay fees and ever increasing shipping cost. Too bad any and all used audio in my area is a joke so I have to buy online (typically AGON these days).

Yeah, I went to Guitar Center near me and picked up some practice amps cheaper than asking prices on the internet before shipping.
Yes the categories, the ones I usually sell in are the higher priced :(
