What do you think of this franchise idea?

Will it work?

Would you buy into one?

Would you make one of your own?

Its been going on for a while and there are lots of I Sold Its around. I know one came into our town and then shut down a couple months later. They take about 35% of the final sale. Then they deduct the listing fees and final value fees, and the customer is left with about 50% of the selling price. Might be ok for some people, but that is bad for the seller in my opinion.

I have never seen this franchise. I think it has a great potential if it wasn't squeezing the seller and the store owner of profits. I had a feeling that ebay probably wouldn't leave any profits on the table for anyone else.

What % of the selling price do you feel would be fair to give to the seller? What % to the store and what % to ebay?

I am not sure what ebay gets from it. I just know what the store gets from the seller. I think it is too much, but I have been selling on ebay for a while (over 200 positive feedbacks, no negatives). So for someone who doesn't want to get involved in the selling and shipping of the items, then it would be good for them. If a loved one died and someone wanted to sell everything at market value, then it would be the way to go without having to do a lot of work.

What % though could the store keep, would you think would make the store concept work?
