Judges Guild: Role-Playing | eBay

worth you watching to maybe see what happens to them?

Hmm... aside; I just noticed the final price for the above auction. Not very good... :(

There are many things wrong with that auction. They were sold in a bundle, not individually. The picture is very bad quality and designed to buyers off, and the description is very bad. There is nothing in the auction to attract buyers or give them confidence that they will get value for money. If the seller thinks he is selling crap and pertrays that in his auction, he is going to get buyers who believe they are buying crap, and that is reflected in the final sale price. If you're not willing to put the effort in then you're not going to get the return. He got as much money as he deserved, and someone got a bargain.


This week I've been mostly eating . . . minestrone soup.

Re eBay/PayPal fees...

Am I missing something or are not the likely fees 15p listing (<£1) plus 5.25% (<£30 closing price) plus 20p flat and 3.4% PayPal?

I make that a max of 8.65% UK + 0.5% for overseas plus fixed fees.

OK if I include fixed costs it goes up to 12.15%/12.65% on a notional sale cost of £10.00 - is that what you are considering? If so fine - on £50 it's 8.65%...

Meanwhile Harami2000 - you've got mail.

Don't forget the 25p withdrawal fee if the amount is less than £50 :?

Finally some gets onto eBay - Underworld Oracle 1-6

Listed today in 10 day auctions ending Sunday 4 December:

Issue 1 - http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll? ... %3AIT&rd=1
Issue 2 - http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll? ... %3AIT&rd=1
Issue 3 - http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll? ... %3AIT&rd=1
Issue 4 - http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll? ... %3AIT&rd=1
Issue 5 - http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll? ... %3AIT&rd=1
Issue 6 - http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll? ... %3AIT&rd=1

Regret to those wanting the complete set my copy of Issue 7 has already gone in a private sale that was too good to turn down.

Note none of them have been described as rare - let alone hyper-rare holy grail. :wink:

Thanks for your patience and assistance everyone! More to be listed shortly hopefully....
