Of course! But if you see my above post regarding the fees taken, most sellers are quick to see that logic for their net take.

Damn, so many kinda fees huh? What is an FVF fee? Since you sell so many stuffs on ebay, does ebay give you kinda like a cheaper deal where you can post moar pictures but pay less fees than regular sellers?

Yep, final value fee. If a seller is a top rated seller, you can receive discounts up to 20% off of the fees, but their structure for that is set up to be pretty hard to maintain 12 months a year.

I see. Yeah I only use eBay as a buyer. Selling items on it seems too dodgy for me, and has chances of ridiculous disputes from unreasonable buyers :/

I lost my top rated seller status for one month and my total page views went from 600-800 per day to 5-25 per day. I got it back and jumped to 800 within two days.

Fixed price listings are nearly worthless if you are not top rated.

Why was that? Does the search algorithm prefer 'top rated' or do buyers put that much of a preference for top ratings?

When someone searches by best match it favors top rated sellers. I never knew it was such a big deal until my recent experience.

Is there also a difference in display between auctions and fixed price?

FWIW, I never, ever use best match. Always by time, recent first.

+1, except I sort by "highest first"...

Anyone who uses ebay's "best match" is an idiot -- how would ebay know what the best match for me is? by putting the sellers that they think are the best, first?

+1 esp to take advantage of those too low bins where the seller doesnt know or care the value
