Usually, when you call someone out for "if you use ebay like you SAY" you should really reply to them so that they can respond. I don't know if you are aware, but different offers are sent to different people at different times. I don't have any ZERO selling fee offer for 5 items.
Do you mean save 50% on selling fees on 5 items over $50 if listed before July 20th? Because I have that one. How many current gen used video games can be sold for more than $50. So it doesn't apply whatsoever to what we were discussing in here. And it just goes from 10% to 5% eBay selling fees. Yes, it is nice, but it's maybe once a month. And it is always always always $50, $100, or more items. It never will apply to a $30 or $40 video game. And 5% selling fee saved from my previous example, Resident Evil 2, would still be LOWER on eBay than trading in to GameStop this week. It's sad, really.
Any other questions testing whether I actually know my eBay shit?
You definitely know your shit. I spent about 3 hours this week looking up the values of a bunch of my games on gamestops trade-in site. I compared that value to the current price on ebay, minus $4 for shipping, and the 13% in fees and if it was even close, I took it to gamestop. Out of the hundred and hundreds of games I want to sell, I found 31 that were worth taking to GS. Okay, so now I'm stuck with $300+ in trade credit. What am i going to do with that? well if i was desperate for the cash i could use it on gift cards for BK, Taco Bell, Uber, Subway, whatever...basically same as cash. But i use it on the 3 for $15 sales, B2G1, the clearance collectibles, the occasional game that isn't priced at market value for some reason, etc. Ebay, GS, pricecharting, facebook, offerup...all different tools for selling under different circumstances.
And, my elite has paid for itself ten times over at least. actually, $1135 this year according to the last receipt. I'm going to cry when my Elite expires.
