    Default What is a fair percent to charge seller for sale of tack?

    I am cleaning, listing and handling total sale of tack belonging to a friend, what is a fair percent of total sales to charge.

    Thank you for any help.

    Tack stores usually charge between 25 and 50%, and they don't have to clean it--so I would probably charge between 40 and 50, depending on how dirty it is (more) and how expensive it is (less for super nice stuff.) This is assuming you get somewhat reasonable prices--make sure you agree beforehand what is acceptable.
