We all know eBay has been jacking up prices of fees whether it be listing or final value fees. You can sell a videogame item for $80 and be charged a final value fee of $9! How is a person suppose to make a profit or recoup their costs?

Here is a video on how ChaseTheChuckwagon.com works
I must say, CTCW.com has been very helpful. I was able to sell items that I wasnt able to and even if I made a few bucks, at least the fees did not kill me where I was practically giving the item away for free like eBay. It doesnt cost anything to sign up or even sell. If it doesnt sell, you dont get charged. With eBay, you pay a listing fee and if it doesnt sell, you have to pay the fee.
