Since there has been a recent discussion about selling on the LA (They sell lots of things that are not Daylilies) I asked a friend who sells there just what the costs were. Below is what she sent me (verbatum).

Posting a new item for auction is $-0.20.

Calculated Charges at Item Close:

4% of your final closing bid, if $0.01 to $9.99 .
5% of your final closing bid, if $10.00 to $119.99 .
6% of your final closing bid, if $120.00 to $599.00 .
5% of your final closing bid, if $600.00 to $999.99 .
4% of your final closing bid, if $1000.00 to $2599.00 .
3% of your final closing bid, if $2600.00 to $3999.00 .
2% of your final closing bid, if $4000.00 to $9999.00 .
1% of your final closing bid, if $10000.00 to $100000.00.

Fee for uploading & hosting an image on our server for 60 days:
(Optional - will not apply if you host your image elsewhere)
I'm confused about this

upload image fee is $Free per image. (hosted for 60 days)
Fee for uploading a counter on our server:
Lily Auction Counters track the number of buyers who have viewed your
listing. Multiple views from the same user are counted only once. The
counter will appear at the bottom of your listing. Hidden Counters
can only be seen by the Seller when the seller is LOGGED IN. After
auction close the counters remain static and will be viewable for 7
days after auction close.

upload Counter fee is $-0.10 per counter.

There are now only 2 irises listed on the auction (maybe a 'little' late to be selling for those buyers who are up North), but I did check it a while back, and there were several listed and seemed to be doing quite well.
