Shipping: A 69cm frame may or may not fit in a 130" box with the fork removed so you need to 'dry measure' the frame. Width is going to be 7". Add 3-4" to the length and height to compensate for the box and packaging material. Your probably looking at a 31" tall box thats 40" long so thats 118". Ship it USPS parcel post. Get an actual quote first, add $10 for shipping materials and use that number in your ebay ad.

Fees: 10-13% by the time your done. If your running a fixed price ad take this into account. Something selling for $300 will put $260-270 in your pocket. For the most part using ebay to host your pics isnt expensive so it just depends. Using an outside host like Photobucket saves $$$ but its more of a hassle. Weight the pros and cons against the price of the item.

Trial run: Sell a few whimsical items just to get a fell for how it works.
