I just tried to cash in on my R9 290x on Ebay this week. It did sell for $380. I got slightly less than I should have for shipping as well. Ebay takes 10% of the total, including 10% of the shipping and other fees as well. Paypay steals another 3-5%, I can't remember exactly. Paypal is also holding my funds until after the buyer gets the card. As long as the buyer does not complain I get the money 2-3 days after confirmed delivery.
In the end I will get somewhere around $320. But it was a helluva lot of BS to do it. I was not in an immediate need for the money (I knew Paypal was going to put hold on it) so I chose this over selling locally. Ebay is just about too much hassle for the money anymore. They take way too much in fees.
Exactly, that's what I meant by don't forget the PayPal fees.
Depending on the listing type, eBay takes 10% off everything, PayPal then takes their 2% plus whatever tacked on fees they want so you're up to 3-5%, then they hit you with a foreign currency conversion if you listed in USD for another 2% and their conversion is always pretty gougy so add another 0.5%.
Last time I used eBay I ended up paying 18% in fees.
