What NOT to do when your terminal seizes and there is a big sign saying your files are locked until payment is made. 1. The first rule is Do NOT panic 2. Do NOT pay the service being offered. They may have have planted that Malware. 3. Do NOT attempt a wild fix. For example .. Putting the whole laptop in the fridge is not really going to help the hot situation. 4. Do NOT remove the Security software. There's a chance that the software was removed before the Malware occurred. It's generally a good idea to maintain an up to date internet security package. Sometimes the files are not encrypted but its a basic Malware program saying it is, in a ruse to extract payment. Do not fall for this trap. If it is Ransomware then the problem is potentially more serious. There is still a chance however that the files can be retrieved legitimately with current software.
Fees when selling on Ebay can take quite a large chunk out of a sale. If in business then it's important to add on that extra cost. However that extra cost may not make the product very attractive to a buyer. There seems to be a fee for everything. Ebay is no different.
Just starting out without a store then expect to 9.9 % of the entire takings to Ebay plus the insertion fee. It varies depending on the value of the product. It's $1.50 for sales under $100 and $3.50 if it's over $100. The insertion fee is waivered for the first 40 auctions or fixed sales per month. And then there is the Paypal fee. About 2.9 % of the sale price. Don't forget postage. It can take a very large chunk. So the basic picture is that for a product that is sold for $100 about a 1/3 of that goes to fees and postage.
A basic store will cost about 9.5 % for tech products plus $20 per month. There are 200 listings with free insertion. More listings than that and the insertion fee is 50 cents or 5 cents for media categories. The final value fee is capped at $250. So the higher the value of the product sold the less is payed in fees in percentage terms.
There are two other types of stores. The featured store and the Anchor. The former cost around $50 per month and the latter costs around $500 a month. The final value fee is still 4 % for items over $200 in Technology items and home appliance categories and 7.5 % for the fashion section in the Anchor store.
To sum it all up.
There are fees. Then there are the fees of the fees. Then there are the fees of the fee fees!
