So only $4.30 over spot per ASE? More even for those that don't have 2% CC.

Welcome to the forum but those premiums are insane.
I am not the seller. But, I know the seller. She is my mom :)

I had her price the coins 10 cents below the cheapest other option, plus list in a category other than bullion. I can have her lower the price $1... She paid $20 a coin earlier in the year, but there is 13% ebay/paypal, plus shipping. So it is not a break even thing. Which is OK, since eBay is running a sell 5 items, get $50 coupon. Heck, I will tell her to change the price to $19.99. You'll be at $17.99 with discounts. That is cheaper than anything from the major dealers. At any quantity. She vetoed this, but, did lower it a $1. I guess it is easy to talk when it isn't your money :)

I have been following this thread for months... maybe years. I think I bookmarked page 32 first and later changed to page 46.

Selling bullion at a profit (or even break even, for that matter) is very difficult on eBay, because of the fees you pointed out. Good luck out there.

With all due respect to Usury, $4 over spot and no ebucks isn't that great IMHO although, to be fair, most premiums are ridiculous lately
When I posted it wasn't that much over.

I've tried to buy, with my ebay bucks:

Silver Bullion, 2017 ASE's, Morgan Silver Dollars, I gave up:

At the Checkout it says:
"This code can't be applied to some of your items."

Anyone else having issues today?
maybe it'll clear up by tomorrow

or not, IDK

I didn't read of any changes towards purchasing anything other than gift cards

I'm pretty much over the eBay bucks and rebates gig. Now if I can get an eBay order for the same prices as a check I'll do it for convenience (or up to 2% higher).

IDK, zero cost PM's are Great
What's that, um? 100% better than even "check price":2 thumbs up:
It's like free icing on the cake and I was going to buy the cake anyway and through diligence and good shopping habits, even the cake was at a discount

One thing though, it's not convenient, it's not difficult either, but hunting for the right purchase takes time
That I got lots of though

Seriously, it's the find, at the right price
AND
I get Icing!

Well, at least I used to

Maybe I'm now relegated to buying Star Notes or something like that to get my money out of them to get my PM's

I need to spend some ebucks. Will probably just buy that silver bar at 75 cents over.

That international silver bar deal months ago from usa gold bureau when spot was $18ish was epic. Only time i've ever seen bucks on silver , plus volume discount. The price i paid then is still the same as now @.75 and 16.50 spot

Id take one with 10% ebay bucks, haven't seen any lately.
Now they have 1% Ebucks on alot more items like auto parts, etc. But yeah, haven't seen any 8% deals for several weeks now. My guess is this is the new norm. They are trying to increase sales across the board on a continuing basis, rather than the bulk sales only during the special deals. Sucks!
