Gets a Refresh and Plans for the Year

This site wouldn’t be of much value without our visitors so that’s why we want you to know that your feedback is important to us.  Among the things we’ve heard loud and clear from you are:

  1. The original eBay Calculator is great, don’t take it down!
  2. Handwriting fonts are nice but sometimes not the best choice.
  3. A dedicated mobile app would be sweet!

To address the first concern, we’ve decided to cancel the plan to decommission the original eBay Calculator.  The idea behind creating the new eBay Calculator was for it to eventually replace the original, but that was to the dismay of many users.  Instead, both the original and new eBay Calculators will remain up and running as the former is still used by many, and the latter offers the user interface responsiveness to support mobile web clients.

As you may have noticed, the look and feel of is now more consistent across all of our pages.  We’ve removed the handwriting font as it’s been a top complaint about our new calculators, and we’re now using a color scheme that is truer to the original eBay Calculator.  We’ve also introduced a fun new logo.  We hope the changes will improve the usability of the site and offer a more recognizable identity.

Some folks have been asking about a mobile app from us.  It’s easy to point out that our mobile-friendly eBay Calculator is designed to work on tablets and phones, but that’s not what they’re talking about.  They want something that can be installed on and launched natively from their mobile device, using the familiar user interface flows of that device.  We agree that nothing beats a dedicated mobile app so rest assured, we’re working on it.

    Ebay has recently announced a major shift in fees for sellers. Do you guys anticipate adjusting your calculator to represent the new fee structure? Love the site. Just recently found it but I absolutely love it. I’ve developed my own excel sheets but I cross check with yours almost daily. Yours just looks better than mine!!!!! Thanks for everything.
