Sellers: Simple Fee Calculators for Fees on Amazon, Etsy, Overstock, Buy.com & Details of Recent #eBay Fee Increase

There is a new version of Ryan Olbe's eBay fee calculator which uses the new eBay fee rates as of July 06, 2011. He also has free online fee calculators for those who sell on Amazon, etsy, Overstock Auctions and Buy.com. For eBay, he also has calculators for eBay Canada, Ireland, UK and Australia.

He also sells definitive spreadheets to calculate the cost of selling one single item on eBay or the cumulative cost of selling multiple items. They can tell you what the total cost of selling on eBay is and what your final profit is (the exact amount you will have left over after fees).They incorporate all of the latest eBay and PayPal fee rates. I use them myself and find they make a big difference in figuring out profits or losses - before you make a costly mistake.

The spreadsheets work for many eBay sites: 
eBay.com, eBay.ca, eBay.com.au, eBay.co.uk, eBay.ie, eBay.fr, eBay.es, eBay.it, eBay.de, eBay.at, eBay.be, eBay.nl, eBay.pl, eBay.ch, eBay.in, eBay.com.my, eBay.ph and eBay.com.sg

Details of the latest eBay.com rate changes:

  • The 5% discount for standard PowerSellers is being removed. Only the 20% discount for Top-rated sellers will be available.
  • Final Value Fees for Store owners selling in Auction-Style Format are changing and are now being applied to the total sale amount (item price + S&H).
