Salecalc for eBay App

Download on the App Store

Many visitors have asked us if there is an app available for our calculators. Today, we’re excited to announce the release of our first native mobile app, Salecalc for eBay!  Just like the web version, Salecalc for eBay will calculate fees and profit from a potential eBay sale, including associated PayPal fees. You can choose from the many available listing and upgrade options to see their effect on overall profit, and also find the sale price that will bring the profit you want.   Salecalc for eBay is free and will work on iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.

Features

  • slide on a number field from left to right to decrease or increase values without using the keyboard
  • easily switch between an auction or fixed price listing
  • find the break even price point, or the sale price for a specific net profit, return percentage, or profit margin
  • visualize proceeds, costs, net profit, and the breakdown of fees with dynamic charts
  • persistent settings so you don’t have to re-enter them when re-opening the app

eBay 2013 Spring Seller Update: Part II

Today, we updated our eBay Fee Calculators to use the most recent fee updates for eBay Stores subscribers effective May 1, 2013.  The updates consist of the following:

  1. To cover the new final value fee rates for various categories, we’ve expanded the list of available categories in the category drop-down menu of the calculators.
  2. For non-free Auction-style listings, insertion fees are now 25¢, 15¢, and 10¢ for Basic, Premium, and Anchor Stores, respectively.  Formerly, insertion fees were tiered based on starting price.
  3. For fixed price listings, insertion fees are now 20¢, 10¢, and 5¢ for Basic, Premium, and Anchor Stores, respectively.  One exception is the insertion fee for items in the Books, DVDs & Movies, Music & Video Games category, which is now 5¢.  Formerly, insertion fees for all categories were 20¢, 5¢, and 3¢ for Basic, Premium, and Anchor Stores, respectively.
  4. Final value fees for Auction-style and fixed price listings in Stores are either 4%, 6%, 7%, 8%, or 9%, depending on the category.  Formerly, final value fees were tiered based on the total amount of the sale.
  5. The maximum final value fee for Auction-style and fixed price listings in Stores is $250–the same as the maximum for non-Stores.  Formerly, there was no maximum final value fee for Stores that we’re aware of.
  6. If Buy It Now is added to an Auction-style listing, it must be at least 30% over the listing’s start price.  This applies to both Store and non-Store listings.

These updates, along with the updates mentioned in our previous post, complete the changes required for the eBay 2013 Spring Seller Update.  As always, let us know in the comments if there’s something we overlooked.
