FVF on shipping question

I received a higher than usual invoice this month from Ebay. Has the final value fee on shipping gone up?
And I charge actual shipping, no handling fee, are you all raising the shipping charge to pay for the fvf?

I received a crazy invoice from ebay as well which makes me sick.. and I tend to put a lower postage to encourage people to bid, as I am based in Sweden.. I think it's a really bad idea.. not only I pay 4th of the Recorded post out of my pocket, my items still do not sell at sky-high prices..

Gone up since when? No it hasn't gone up, but yes you are charged FVF on the shipping cost at the same rate as the bid price. Int'l purchases are charged according to the cheapest domestic ship option

My overall FVF's are actually a bit lower now that they started applying it to shipping too because they reduced the price of the FVF percentage when they made that change.

I guess I never really look at the invoice, but I saw all these fees on shipping and was all freaked out. Ridiculous, since I don't profit from the shipping, it all goes to USPS!~

I don't either. I charge actual shipping or less. But it still ends up being less in FVF's for most things I sell now.

Before the FVF for fixed price listings was 12% of the first $50 and 9% above that. Now it is 10% for first $50 and 8% above that, including shipping amount.

So if I sold a $150 item plus $4.75 shipping before it was $15 in FVF ($6 for first $50 and $9 for the rest). Now it is $13.38 ($5 for first $50, $8 for the rest, plus $.38 for the shipping). Not a huge difference but still less. Definitely not more then it was before.

However, for the items that have expensive shipping, it sucks.
