Re: El Reg hacks need to actually *look* at the modern fleabay

"...charge the seller a %age of the postal charges."

A natural reaction to the previous trend of offering an item worth about $20 for just $0.99 (thus avoiding eBay commission fees) plus $23.00 "shipping".

The real macroeconomics mystery are the many vendors from China offering free S&H, even on $0.99 items, and when it arrives the printed postal-meter postage really is ¥00.000 (zero). This is a very intriguing mystery. The only solution implies a CPC 5-year plan decision.
