    I am selling items on eBay for a person on ebay.
    My job responsibilities include
    - Taking pictures of the items
    - Writing up discriptions
    - Seeing what item sells
    - If an object does sell I have sell I take care of packaging the items to be shipped

    How much should I charge for my services?
    - $??? per hour
    - $??? per item

    fig tree
    if you have a similar place in your area (san antonio has "i sold it on ebay" or some store like that, dont know if its a chain) you could call them and ask, cause even if you're reasonably priced, if someone else in town charges half that you might not get that much business

    All up in your bidness
    It depends on the value of what you're selling, what your time is worth, and how much of a friend you are. If you're selling say 20 items, it can take hours to list them all. I think a 25% commission would be a good place to start.

    How many items a day/week will you be selling? If that number is high, I'd ask for a commission agreement, say 20% or so? :D

    I'm working probably once a week, going to the persons work, putting on new items, dealing with items that have sold.

    I don't know how many items I will be selling. I think somewhere from 15-20 to start.

    I would rather not get paid on commission, because if she never sells anything, I would never make any money even after all the work I put into listing the items.

    I will be selling new "high end" clothes, handbags, etc.

    I play soccer right now and I will be playing it every day except for weekends starting september 8th. I do have a lot of friends that I hang out with.
