    Have you sold anything on Ebay recently, could this be the fees they charge for inserting an item?

    If you still cant figure out what it is, contact them asap in case your account has been accessed by someone else, or in case its an error.

    They might have split the listing fees in your last invoice and the final value fees in this latest invoice. You can get an itemisation by logging into 'My eBay' and then click on 'Seller Account' and 'View My Invoice' and select the month you want to view. You can see your latest charges by clicking on 'View My Account Status'.

    It's a pain isn't it - I guess what you sold was quite expensive to have accrued a fee as huge as that. Generally, I budget about 5% of the final selling value to cover eBay fees.

    consider the risk the people were taking in putting lots of money in developing the software. ebay isn't just some company's website giving contact numbers and product information, it is an entirely different thing.

    they deserve their fees. because of ebay millions of people are much more free to buy and sell things around the world.

    err no even listing fees are more than that, what gets you though is the final value fee, not cheap at all.

    also paypal's fee for accepting a payment seems massive to me.

    the whole thing puts me off selling on ebay because it just seems like there's so many different points at which you get a significant chunk of your money eaten.

    No, if you don't list anything for sale, you don't get charged.
