Gratefulphish replied to NotANurse's discussion Debating selling on Ebay- anyone got any advice or tips?
"Personally, I mark up shipping, and use that to offset some of the combined fees.  Ebay is roughly 10%, and paypal is around 2.9%.  I usually charge $15.00 for shipping most standard posters, but that covers the tube ($4.00 alone) plus…"

Gratefulphish replied to Rusty Jenkins's discussion Tom Petty, Full Band Signed album cover! Is it real?

Gratefulphish replied to Jason's discussion Regents Gallery "authentic" hair pieces and certificates of authenticity
