Recent Auction Questions

Q. Recently..a friend of mine took it upon herself to try and sell an expensive camera outfit on another online auction site where she had tried before on the same site to try and sell the camera outfit (without success). I actually own the camera outfit and she was setting it up doing the legwork..etc. One day last week...she unexpectedly calls me and informs me that she now has a firm bid on the camera set, which is good in itself...but the bid actually comes out at about current market wholesale value. We do not have any contractual agreement for her services being rendered for this service that she has provided. My question is...is there any "rule of thumb" of the common % a person would charge for setting this up, managing the process and negotiating the sale and completing the sale process on an online auction? And is there any difference in a certain % to charge when the item doesnt sell over when the item actually does sell.? Need to know ASAP.! Thanks.!!
