It's time to decide if I want to renew my eBay store subscription. When I signed up for a store I was listing over 50 items per month, so it made economic sense, based on the insertion fee cost at the time.

I'm only listing about 25-30 items per month now, and I see that the basic store subscription cost is now $19.95 per month.

At first glance, it doesn't seem to make economic sense to keep up a store subscription. Granted, I will miss out on special features, but the only one I used was vacation settings.

I'm currently a top rated seller, so I enjoy the discounts associated with that. Am I overlooking any savings or benefits associated with maintaining my eBay store?

A couple things. First is that starting this month the smallest Store subscription went up $5 to $24.95 for month to month, though free listings went up to 250 for both Buy It Now and auctions (up from 200 each). Don't forget that rather than the flat 10% final value fee that with even the smallest Store subscription that fee goes down to 9% for most categories (including collectibles) and even less for some other categories. There is also that 20% off final value fees as long as you meet some criteria, though I'm not sure if that applies to those without a store as well. If you don't want to commit to a full year just go for the month to month plan and exit whenever you want.
