    It has taken me a while to get up and running after my move, but I just started selling eggs on ebay. When I looked at my fee, I see, "Final Value Fee on Shipping" What is up with this. I charge 12.95 to ship and that covers, packaging material, tape, labels, more tape, gas to the PO ect... So I really do nto make money on shipping. If I do it is like a 1 here and there. How do I pay 1.50ish on shipping fees when I am not making money on shipping. I hate to charge more for shipping to cover this and I guess that is why I have seen sellers charging 15.00. As 12.95 seems to be low compared to most. Just had to rant a little. Guess I will be selling on here more than normal.

    I don't know how many time I see products so cheaply would get a high priced shipping. I just could not figure out how Ebay can determine the price for shipping!

    Ebay doesn't determine a price for shipping. It is set by the seller and the seller can charge whatever they like.
