[DML] Re: How to sell a DeLorean (Ebay is Now a Bargain)



I have to disagree....

Ebay IS NOW one of the best deals in selling  your Delorean(or any 
car).....Let me explain...

For the people that do not know Ebay CHANGED all their financial 
rules on selling a car on their site...believe it or not there is NO 
CHARGE to post your car on Ebay(posting fees)and they changed the 
final value fee to a FLAT $125.00,thats right no matter HOW LONG it 
takes to sell your car(Delorean) you can renew your ORIGNAL posting
(the key word here is the orignal posting)you can sell up to FOUR 
cars a year without any posting fees,after that it is $20.00 per 
postings per car(vehicle).
Just remember if your Delorean does not sell to make sure to renew 
the ORIGNAL posting otherwise if you repost it as a new auction it 
will be counted as a new posting and go against the four free 
Vehicles for sale postings
Again NO Matter if your Delorean sells in one week or it takes six 
months as long as it does not sell you can renew your posting on Ebay 
until it sells and only pay one flat selling fee!!!! And if it never 
sells or you sell local there is no fees at all! So in a nutshell you 
CAN ask your selling price without fear of it costing you a arm and 
leg in Ebay weekly posting fees(old $40..00 per week now $00.00 or 
free) or their old percentage closing fees(a arm and a leg now a flat 
$125.00 fee and ONLY when and if it sells)
