eBay The Easy Way
There is no denying that eBay is a fantastic place to earn money from selling unwanted stuff. BUT….It can be time-consuming, a little daunting and easy to get it wrong
As a registered eBay trading assistant and powerseller, I can take care or every aspect of selling for you online. With a clear commission structure and a wealth of experience selling online, you will know up front exactly how much it will cost you and be confident that I always try to get the best possible selling price for my clients.
I operate several eBay accounts and I have 100% positive feedback from over 850 sales. I am a registered business seller and eBay trading assistant with an eBay “shop” and have top rated seller status, all of which drive more customers to my listings.

I also sell on the very popular Irish sites,Donedeal. The process and my commission are the same (except amazon). These sites are particularly suitable if you are selling large or heavy items where collection is preferred and/ or postage isn’t really practical.
Unusually for an Irish seller, I can sell on amazon.co.uk from Ireland as Merchant Fulfilled or FBA. This involves a different fee structure and is really only suitable for barcoded items.
Ready to sell?
It’s easy to get started:
1. Get in Touch
Call or email with a list of what you are hoping to sell. We are limited in the number of clients we can take at any one time so please get in touch to book a selling slot.
Then it’s time to get your stuff ready for sale. All items should be in the best possible condition before being put up for sale. Clothes must be freshly washed and ironed or dry cleaned. If it needs a scrub, scrub it. If it needs to be polished, polish it….you get the idea : )
Cleaning fees will be charged if I need to make an item presentable
2. Send or Deliver
If Leopardstown, Dublin 18 isn’t too far from you, you can drop-off your stuff. Otherwise, arrange a courier. Courier delivery can be surprisingly good value. If you have a parcel motel account (free and easy to set up if you don’t) you can send me a large box of items (41cmx 38cm x64) of up to 10kg for items for just €6.50. Check them out at www.parcelmotel.com. Two other great comparison sites are:
www.parcel2go.com/ie a large box up to 100cm long is just €12.50
www.parceldirect.ie deliver a large box for around €15
3. We'll take care of the rest
We take an inventory, photograph and prepare your stuff for sale. Within 7 days your items will hopefully start selling online. We will send you an inventory report detailing every item, any defects, and estimated selling prices.
We aim to complete all sales within 30 days. Your payment from the sale of your goods will be made either when all items have sold or at pre-arranged intervals (e.g. end of the month).
Not living in Ireland?
We can sell for you no matter where you are in the world! If you are prepared to send it to us, we’ll sell it for you!
The fees you pay cover all associated costs and there are no hidden charges* I pay all eBay, PayPal and other fees from my commission.
- 38% of the selling price of an item which sells for less than €500
- 30% of the selling price of an item which sells for €501 – €1000
- €25% of the selling price of an item which sells for more than €1000
There is minimum charge of €8 per item and therefore items with an expected selling price of less than €30 are not usually accepted but where an item sells for less than €30, the fees charged are 45%
* Certain items will incur additional fees if they must be cleaned or repaired, Full T&C’s in your Seller Agreement, available on request.
All Inclusive Fees
Fees are all inclusive and you pay nothing else for a normal sale, however, there may be additional fees associated with your item(s)
Fees are deducted from the proceeds of the sale of your item(s) and in most cases, you do not pay me anything directly.
I pay all eBay, PayPal and other fees out of my commission. As a guideline every eBay seller must pay a listing fee of €0.25 – €2, then 10% – 12% of the selling price goes to eBay, plus PayPal take 3.4% of the selling price + the postage cost. So before I take anything I must pay between 18% – 25% in fees from the commission you would give me and on average I take only 9% of the selling price.
- Upgrades to a listing e.g. reserve price are charged as per eBay’s fees. See all eBays fees here
- Storage fees are charged on lots or items taking up space in excess of 2 square feet (1 unit). The charge is €20 per month, per unit with no charge for the first 14 days (calculated from the day I take possession of your items)
- Specialist services may occasionally incur costs. For example, a picture cannot be shipped in a glass frame and I must have it professionally removed before shipping OR an item may need to be dry cleaned before sale. Receipts for these services will be retained.
