Putting on a sale and 30p charge?

    I have sold 2 resources in as many weeks though I am not sure why. :(
    Therefore I am wondering about putting on a sale in my shop. I would like to put all my resources in for this.
    However, I have a question.
    Would those resources which currently cost £3 and in a sale would therefore drop below the £3 mark, then cost me an additional 30p? :oops:o_O:confused:
    Does anybody have experience with this, please?
    Thank you. ;):)

    Yes - if you drop the prices and they fall below the £3 you will incur the additional 30p charge.:rolleyes:

    :mad::eek: Hmmm... Thank you for replying. So this is kind of odd that I am in effect having to pay TES in order to be able me to sell my £3 resources more cheaply... I need to think this through and choose my resources carefully I guess.
    I know the 30p charge has been frequently discussed but I am still struggling to get my head around the reasoning behind it. o_O Luckily I have lots of smilies here to express my feelings though. :)
    :rolleyes:

    I feel your pain and frustration...hate the 30p transaction fee. Can't believe it costs that much to process a payment. Putting on sales is not easy now as I have to remove the tick from all my £3 resources :(

    Too right! ... and I can't believe it costs both more time and money than the sale itself to put it on in the first place... :confused::confused::confused:o_O

    Exactly what I do....I do sell single resources at £2 periodically, but then try to bundle them at much better value as I see this as beneficial for buyers rather than TES' pocket....
