Calc will help
you learn whether or not you are making a profit with your eBay auctions.
It provides a user-friendly interface that quickly and easily allows you to see
your true profit or loss.
I used to have a hard time figuring out if I was making money on
auctions. After some research I learned that a lot of people, even some
PowerSellers, were not making a profit on some of their auctions. In many
cases it looks like you are making money on your auctions, but when you factor
in all the costs, like the cost of your product (including shipping fees,
packaging costs, etc.),
fees, PayPal fees, Postal
fees and more, your profits go down dramatically. On the surface you may not be
fully aware of these so-called "hidden" fees. eBay Fees Calc
takes that problem away, before you
list your auctions.
I wrote this program to help me get a grip on my
auctions, and so far it's helped me tremendously.
With eBay Fees Calc you can get my true
Profit/Loss dollar numbers, see your eBay and PayPal fees, find out
what your Total Costs are, and set a Margin for each auction you

Enter the Item Cost Per Unit
dollar amount. If you purchased a lot of 10 items and the lot cost $100.00
then your cost per unit would be $10.00. If you want to include your cost
to have the merchandize shipped to you calculate the total shipping cost and
divide by the number of items in the delivery. Basically, anything you
paid to get the item to you you would divide the cost by the number of units
purchased, and add the total dollar amount in the Cost/Unit field.
Bid and Fees should already be populated. Once you enter the Cost/Unit your
Profit Loss will be calculated.
eBay Fees Calc will
figure out your margin. Say you decide that you want your margin to be
25%. You enter 25 in the % textbox. eBay Fees Calc will determine
your margin to be the Total Costs plus 25% of the Total Costs.
If your Total Costs are
$2.52 (which combines the Cost/Unit and your Fees), and your Margin is 25%, the
percentage would come to $0.63. Add the total cost and your Margin comes
to $3.15. This means that if your Final Bid is higher than $3.15 you made
your Margin on this sale.
