I am astonished you have not drawn any comments re. your Blog entry on ABE's commission charge on shipping. I am an amateur seller, previously limiting myself to eBay. I recently considered setting up my inventory on ABE but decided against doing so when I read the commission structure. The 8% application to shipping is the variable that made me decide against using ABE. It is a RIDICULOUS charge. Everything around me is increasing in price. However, he biggest problem with that is I am not experiencing any corresponding increase in income. The slippery slope is rapidly becoming vertical.
