eBay India Price Hike w.e.f. 16th June, 2011

I have been reading forums where eBay sellers in India are protesting the fee hike affecting eBay India with effect from 16th June, 2011. There was a similar hike last year in September and I think this is coming too soon for both sellers and buyers.

Final Value Fees (FVF) for most categories have increased by one to two percent. However, for SLR Camera Lenses, FVF will be reduced from 5% to 2%.

In addition, store fees and insertion fees are being increased as well, and even though I am not directly affected, I feel for the sellers. Ultimately, they are the ones who lose as buyers could always opt to shop with other stores that carry similar items but at a cheaper price.
