I don't get it......

Average selling price- $650 (Assume Buyer pays any shipping costs)

Price of Xbox One with tax- $540

Profit $110 but....

- $20 Paypal Fee
-$65 Ebay Fee
-$5 Shipping fee charged from Ebay

=$20 Profit

Is it really worth it for $20?

Could be broken systems they are just trying to get rid of.

I've never sold anything on Ebay, but I call BS on your claim that there are $90 in fees per sale.

It's not. eBay fees have now gone f***ing despicable.

I just sold my busted laptop and my monitor for some funds toward a TV which will go nicely with my PS4 on Friday.

Anyway, both sold combined for 234. I now owe eBay 23 of that, they took 13 of it when the two parties paid me through PayPal, so that's 36 out of 234 eBay just took.

BUT, I'm gonna spend another 20 sending the things.

So all in all, that's 56 lopped off 234, leaving me with just under 180. It's an absolute f***ing disgrace.

We really need a new company to come along and wipe the smile off eBay's face.

That's why I only sold a couple Wiis back in the day. The Ebay fees are horrible now.

Give it a couple weeks and those things will skyrocket before Christmas. All the people who procrastinate their shopping will pay a ton to make their kids happy.

They're trying to turn a profit, there are people who bought the thing specifically for this reason, knowing it would sell out and hoping turn a good profit by selling theirs after. As a comparison my cousin got a PS4 off of Kijiji for $550 this last Wednesday.
