Hi! I'm Dane Carlson, and welcome to the Business Opportunities Weblog. I've been publishing this website, by myself, and sometimes with the help of others for over twelve years now. You'll notice two things about this site right away:
With the top bid for his Liberal leadership kit auction sitting at an unrealistic $16 million, comedian Rick Mercer is beginning to wonder if the gag has gone a little too far.
The host of CBC’s Rick Mercer Report will be on the hook for an eBay seller’s fee when the auction ends Tuesday. The fee is a percentage of the selling price and is charged to a seller as soon as the auction closes.
If the auction ended with a $16-million selling price, Mr. Mercer would owe eBay at least $240,000 in fees.
