Becauseebay is a business and not a charity. Adjust your price to reflect the 10%. If a statue sells consistently on ebay for $100 - off ebay people will want to pay $90 orbless because the fees are common knowledge.

Again though, there is no other place to sell all these things so paying ebay 10% is, to me and many others, a small price to pay to have access to so many potential buyers around the world.

You could sell them at an auction where they typically take 15-20% with no where near the audience.

I agree with ottrino, if your focus is Australia users, then setup a facebook site (or find an existing one). Upside, you get all the money, downside, you do more work (like a garage sale). Also, people have to know the page exists. You could throw a link to your Australia peeps here and have them join it.

Sometimes if you post on the sale section of this forum or Statuemarvels, other Aussies will pick stuff up. What are you selling? I'm am always looking for specific things for my collection.

A few SS premium formats, and a lot of GG mini busts (Star Wars).
I'll create a thread in the For Sale section. Thanks guys.

*edit* didn't realise you had to pay a membership fee to use the sale threads!

Do you have the link for this FB page or other buy/sell/trade collectible pages (preferably in Australia).

I'm after buying a few certain items if I can find them (with the possibility of trading). Unfortunately due to Australian Gun/Weapon laws I'm unable to import certain replicas from overseas (unless I fill out a heap of complicated paperwork!).

Also with Import Duties and Taxes on items being changed from $1,000 (Incurring no Import Duties and Taxes) to $20 in Australia from 2017, buying/selling/trading locally is going to look more appealing.

Thanks
