This is not completely true. I had been selling t-shirts on eBay pretty consistently and then all of a sudden they stopped all of my auctions because I had a link stating that I had similar merchandise for sale at my store. So I fixed that issue and reposted. The auctions were up for several days and again they were taken down, this time because I was offering an option of sizes. Let me add that there were bids in on every auction that they stopped. The way I see it, a huge disservice to the bidder. eBay is petty and if they think for a second that they are being cut out of earning a nickle they will pitch a little hissy fit and stop your auction. I recently reposted a few auctions so we'll see how it goes. It seems as though it's ok to have a link to your site on your auction, but it's not ok advertise that you have similar merchandise for sale on your site.jdr8271 said:Ive been selling t-shirts on Ebay for over a year now, with alot of success.

I think what it comes down to is if you are making ebay alot of money, they won't stop you. Otherwise, they try and set a precedent with companies just starting out.
When I list shirts on eBay I start the bidding at $9.99 (.30 fee) and I also include a buy it now of $15.99 (.40 fee). So it runs me .70 to list and then eBay gets their percentage when it sells. All totaled it costs me about $1.10 to list a shirt. Then paypal takes their part. It's almost not worth the hassel to list on eBay any longer.blairrev2003 said:How much are listing fees for a shirt?
I sell mine with the "buy it now" option only. Sale price of $9.99 with a galary photo is $0.75 per item I put up. Don't forget that there's a "final value fee", which is a cut of the final sale price, along with any paypal fees. If you don't sell an item put up for auction, then it costs me just the $0.75 insertion fee.blairrev2003 said:How much are listing fees for a shirt?
