A LA CARTE SELLER ~ You pay fees only when you list an item.
This is the program for you if you want to list a few auction or store items. You will pay a fee of only $0.10 $0.05 (5 cents) when listing an auction item, regardless of starting price or category!  This fee is non-refundable, and is paid whether the item sells or not.  Auction relistings are free, but you must lower your starting price by at least one bid increment, or move the item to the store.  Store items are only $0.01 $0.005 (1/2 cent) per month, based on daily average for the month, and not paid until the end of your monthly period.  If your item sells, you pay a small percentage of the winning bid on each auction, or the selling price of your store item, as described in the chart above.  We require a deposit of at least $4.95 to activate your seller account, which will be credited to your seller account and used towards any listing or sales fees you may incur.  Note: Since an ala carte seller doesn't have a dealer page, click here for a tip on how to provide a link for buyers to find your items.
