Yes I totally agree with you and I'm surprised that they are now permitted to take a percentage of our shipping rec'd from customers.   By the time you finish paying them and Paypal, there is not much left over.

Well thanks to both of you and very nicely put Dena.

Comment by Bonnie Boswell on August 24, 2011 at 5:58pm
Dena Well put! Unlike selling on ebay I am confident that my clients trust the Ruby Lane and me. They know that I am a professional and stand behind my merchandise. I have to say that I still buy alot on ebay but sell there... I don't think so. SAVE one large bag of odd lot bits and pieces of jewelry I can't do on Ruby Lane. A great lot of stuff but not for RL.  BTW those free listing days ... I remember those on ebay 10 years ago,then they seemed to decide they didn't need to keep their clients (the sellers) happy. And they wanted to rake in the $$$ we made them. OH I could go on! 
Comment by Dena on August 24, 2011 at 1:08pm

Great advice Bonnie!

Michelle another advantage to Ruby Lane is they do not set your shipping options, you do, and you have an option of flat fee for insurance or up to date price automatically given to the buyer plus you can give the buyer an option to not have insurance on their package. They do not charge a commission it is all up front and you pay a flat fee. They have free and reduced listing days through out the year. They are a very reputable site to sell and buy at which has attracted a lot of both to RL. They do advertise in many venues not just the net. They are constantly trying to update things for the Better for both buyers and sellers. They understand that having happy sellers along with buyers is the best way to handle a business. They have tried hard not to raise costs and have actually improved cost to the seller in several ways since I have been there. You can write articles for the blog, two a month, a have a credit of $35 per article put into your shop account which can really save you money. 

When I think of Ruby Lane I think of Class. :) Dena

Thank you for the wonderful help and advise.  I do plan on transitioning soon.  I have roughly 400 listings on ebay so will probably still leave some there and put only my finer items on Ruby Lane.

Thanks again I truly appreciate your taking the time to write.

Best regards,

Michelle, I so totally agree with Dena. I was a silver powerseller for years on ebay.. joined in 1997. They drove me nuts changing the store advantages, how MY clients could pay ME, and all the rest of their crap... I said there has top be a better place on the net.  I opened my Ruby Lane shop 4 years ago and just like Dena have never looked back. It does take time to learn how to use everything that RL can offer it's sellers. I would like to give you 3 words of advise.

#1 when you get your shop open take time to look at EVERY link on the sellers page. Thats where everything you will need to be a successful seller is.

#2 their customer service for sellers is great. That link is at the bottom of the sellers page. When I can't figure something out I ask and they help

#3 do it now that $75 is a BIG advantage... it's in your pocket not RL's or Ebays.

My sales have grown every year. This year I have already surpassed last years total and it's August. I work hard at this and am now making $.  If you have questions :-) and you will there are people on the lane that will help you.  Staff members or fellow sellers.

Thanks Dena, I will explore that and I appreciate the info about the $75.00 fee being waived.

Ebay is currently charging a percentage for shipping fees and they do not even offer the power seller discount which is given on the final value fee.... it is getting very difficult to come out ahead, so I truly appreciate your help and advise.


Comment by Dena on August 23, 2011 at 6:41pm



Hi Michelle, Ruby Lane is a very nice to sell. We sold at Ebay before we opened a shop at Ruby Lane and have never looked back. Now until October 15th the $75 start up fee has been waived so it is a perfect time to open a shop. You are charged $35 up to 50 items per month, $20 of that is for advertising. You would be able to keep 50 items in your shop for the same price if you only kept 10 which is the minimum for a shop to stay open. There is a one time fee of 30 cents per item to list it in your shop. Here is a link that might explain things you have questions to but we have been very happy at Ruby Lane and have been there for 7 years. All the best! Dena

Top Reasons to Sell at Ruby Lane

I am contemplating opening joining Ruby Lane.  I have been selling on ebay for two years now, mainly collectibles, china and some antiques.   Ebay's fees are extravagant and growing and with the lack of seller protection, I was wondering if anyone could find a moment to lend an opinion.

I am considering putting some of my finer items on Ruby Lane, which would be only a handful right now.

Thanks so much and have a great day!
