That 1/3 of the selling price sounds about right to sell on Ebay for someone else. Maybe a little less if the items are high value, or small with low shipping cost and easy to pack. Harry's is definitely less expensive, but some people are not willing to put an exact price on items. They want the maximum price. You get put in a no win situation either way. All you can do is let them know the costs, and be willing to walk away (even if they are a friend).

If you sell low dollar items on ebay and get paid via paypal it's going to cost you 20%.
I wised up on smaller items by building in free shipping into the starting bid which IS the minimum at which I will sell........and for which ebay cannot charge a percentage.......
I don't play the "Reserve Bid" game and run 3 day auctions only which end around 8PM Central time so most folks, coast to coast, are awake.......
