Gonna be interesting to see if the Authentics being sold on ebay by the member longlongago08 make the prices or even more which he paid for them from Topps:

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/2010-11-Topps-Hundred-Club-Ryan-Giggs-Sign-Limited-105-/250827194746?pt=UK_SportsMemorabilia_Football_Memorabilia_ET&hash=item3a6677417a
Topps Price Paid = 50.00
Postage from Topps = 2.15
Postage Cost to send = 6.00
Ebay Final Value Fee = 9.18
Paypal Fee = 3.18
Final Ebay Price = 103.00 incl p&p
PROFIT = 32.49

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/2010-11-Topps-Record-Signing-Shearer-Auto-Limited-150-/250827195835?pt=UK_SportsMemorabilia_Football_Memorabilia_ET&hash=item3a667745bb
Topps Price Paid = 50.00
Postage from Topps = 2.15
Postage Cost to send = 6.00
Ebay Final Value Fee = 7.47
Paypal Fee = 2.61
Final Ebay Price = 83.00 incl p&p
PROFIT = 14.77

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/2003-Topps-Gold-Premier-Michael-Owen-Autograph-/250827197513?pt=UK_SportsMemorabilia_Football_Memorabilia_ET&hash=item3a66774c49
Topps Price Paid = 60.00
Postage from Topps = 2.15
Postage Cost to send = 6.00
Ebay Final Value Fee = 7.47
Paypal Fee = 2.61
Final Ebay Price = 83.00 incl p&p
PROFIT = 4.77

Will all be able to see if profit can be made at this early stage of selling then as he is the first seller to risk high buying price to see demand from people who do not know the Topps Authentics site exists...

9% of the Final selling price, very similar % then for PayPal,
Also insertion prices would have been involved unless ran from a 99p auction start.
Also P&Pwill cost more than 1 and if signed for will be more like 7(if international) and considering the P&P Topps originally charged, this represents a huge margin lost
ok so, will assume listed for free on ebay.
Split the 6.50 postage cost between the 3 cards...
9% Final value fee ebay

Isnt paypal 3.2% +20p or something like that?

Yes assume registered international postage will be 7, so will add on postage charged on listing to final price and then put the international post charge as a deduction.

lol, no worries Ben. thx for the paypal fees %.
Have assumed that Topps would charge 6.50 for post to UK for all 3 so charged 2.15 each.
Have edited my first post. Will do the calcs later when auctions finish...!!
Postage from Germany at 6 is about spot on I reckon?

didnt bother putting the base cards on Calvin. Looks like I should've done...sounds like definately worth investing in the 20 card set ones from Topps then.
Will add the basic card links below so we can all see what they finish at.

PayPal fees are split into 2 parts, a percentage fee and a fixed fee. The percentage fee is determined by which country you are registered in and how much you receive every month via PayPal.
You are correct with th 2.9% and 20p fixed fee, not sure if Germany is the same but I'm sure the % rises by 1% if an international transaction and I'm also sure they then add an extra 'currency conversion charge' :shrug
I'll do the 2.9% +20p assuming one of us from UK were selling Mark, easier for my brain. thx forgot about the fixed amount also. No wonder I dont sell!! :P

A lot of people are reading the thread who are big ebay sellers (dogadug etc...) so will be interesting to see if these guys try it also...
I am inclined to agree Gregory though. The early bird catches the worm in this case for selling them.

Great result for longlongago. Slightly suspicious of the second highest bidder on the autos though with a feedback of only 4 and 100% bid activity with the seller having placed 64 bids......
have edited 1st post to show profits...
good spot Ben on the suspicious bidder, very suspicious as well I agree...

Effort made Andy :1356

Bit indifferent profit-wise but some of them base cards made a killing.

Probably worth doing this once but considering the time and effort needed to list(write descriptions, upload pics etc etc) would not advise anyone to follow suit. B)
first time Ive ever used the calculator accessory on my laptop, impressed with myself Mark!! Just call me the maths boffin from now on... :wink
