So when I list the occasional gun on GB, I will then figure shipping + insurance + 20% and add that to the price of the gun listed and advertise straight up price to the buyer. USPS, UPS and FedEx all have insurance schedules we can use. If we figure weight of gun + packaging we get shipping weight and can figure that cost too. We don't have to take a hit.

No wonder there's a glut of overpriced guns on GB.

They don't but they make enticements (you get lower costs) to get you
to take them. Of course they have vendors who they get a cut from. again its all about Gunbroker developing new income streams at the expense of the sellers.

Hopefully, this will cut down on the sellers with overpriced items that just sit and sit.

I do feel sorry for the sellers having to adjust to these new rules

As I was reading this thread I was thinking the same exact thing regarding that dealer.

Really? So the few times I sell a gun on GB I am supposed to take a 20% hit on the shipping/insurance? If you think that will contribute to a glut of overpriced guns on that site then me thinks you had a few too many adult beverages. I don't know any successful business that eats costs like that.

I keep seeing 20% being kicked around. So are you saying that on a $2500 gun sale I will pay $500? Something doesn't sound right.

That's because it isn't 20%. Following is GB's fee schedule not including any optional services.

Final Value Final Value Fee*
$0 – $250 6.0% of the final value
Over $250 6.0% of the first $250 ($15.00), plus 3.5% of the remaining value

For comparison, my all-in costs for selling on EBay including PayPal fees is approx. 10% - not 20% as an earlier poster stated.

Yes, that Kansas dealer had some rather overpriced guns. GB has been very unhelpful the last few times I've had to contact them as a seller, and this is the second rate hike lately. I spoke with the owner of Gunsinternational at the Dallas SCI convention, his site is looking better and better to me for selling, but as a buyer some of these changes are for the better
