    Cloughie,

    My wife sells on eBay daily here in the US. Yes, on ebay you have to pay a listing fee and a final value fee for selling items.

    On ebay.co.uk, they probably let your account balance build up before they ask you to register a credit card or send in a payment. That's the way it used to me on ebay.com if I remember correctly.

    Best of luck on eBay!

    You have to pay, but not very much. Something like $.25 and 1% of the sale. It's quite reasonable. They let the charges build up and charge you at once - the cc fees get too high if they charge everything you rack up $.35 in fees.

    i'm just wondering, are there any sites which allow you to post a possible sales item, (just to see if there is interest), before you declare that item open for bids?

    Not really. Just do a search on completed items and see what they have sold for in the past. Or make a reserve - that is, you don't have to sell it unless it goes above a dollar amount you set. If your item doesn't sell, you can relist it for free, so don't worry if your orig price is too high.
