Sellers would sell a $20 game for like $5 with $15 shipping, and ebay would only get a cut from the $5. Ebay eventually caught on and changed the system. On Amazon, they force you to use a set price for shipping (i.e., $3.99), so it isn't a factor.
Ahhh! That's why. Okay, that makes perfect sense. As I was reading the terms and conditions it felt like it was a cash grab but that makes perfect sense.
All good tips. Thank you for taking the time to write up your advice. I appreciate it. It kind of feels weird selling my stuff for the first time in 20 years. But, it should be a good way to keep me busy over the winter.
