eBay Cons

  1. eBay fee: For every successful sale, you need to pay a fee for the eBay. Every month they will send you an invoice how much do you owe eBay and you need to settle this amount.
  2. PayPal fee: Currently PayPal is the only way you can receive money for your sales. PayPal also charge a fee for every transaction. Not like eBay, PayPal is deducting their fee instantly when you make a transaction.
  3. Some buyers are making fake complains or cancel the order after shipped and etc. This will affect your eBay account status.
  4. If you are a new seller on eBay, until you make a few sales and gain the trust of eBay, they will hold your PayPal funds for 21 days. Withing that 21 days if your buyer does not make any complain you will get your money after 21 days. So you need some cash on hand to start.
