Post here first. Cut the middle man. Way more traffic here than the freaks forum. Only bad part of eBay is their cut, rare shady buyers, waiting for the $ to transfer.

Over the past year I have sold 25 statues on Ebay. When I sell a statue, I want to get back what I paid for it and realize that I am not sitting on a bar of gold (unlike some people who sell on Ebay). For me, I always found it easier to post a statue as a "Buy It Now" instead of posting it as auction. Even though money can be made with an auction, there have been times when I have been the only person who ended up bidding on an item and won it for a very low price (for example, in an auction I won the Alex Ross JSA print from the Warner Bros Studio store from 1998 for less than $200. When that item was brand new it sold for I believe at least $250 if not more).

As I said, I like to get back the money I paid for an item when selling it on Ebay. So if I paid $200 for a statue, I will price it at around $250 or $260. Out of that say $260 would be
-$200 for the statue
-$20 for the Ebay fee
-about $7 for the paypal fee
-the remaining $33 would be for shipping, handling and insurance. Now when sending an item via USPS, the post office automatically gives $50 in insurance but I will get insurance for the amount that was paid for because you never know what might happen in transit.
