Princess carriage- auctiva sucks

I've been having fun with the Twiddleybitz Princess carriage.
Here's the one I'm just listing on ebay now.
Been a little upset as AUCTIVA- the once free listing- uploading site for ebay auctions site, which I have been using. 
Has now changed and has now started charging for their services US dollars- 
So add to this  ebay charges, listing fee's AND their 10% commission ,they have forced us to offer PAYPAL which also takes 5% commission AS WELL as fee's for withdrawing our own money it kinda sucks!
Does any one know of another auction free list to ebay site like Auctiva ?
This means I'm going to have to put my prices up to cover all these extra charges- 
an EXTRA 25c a photo doesnt sound much but when you average about 10 photo's per item its not good. I wish I could take any less photo's but most of my items have quite a few pages and are a bit complicated!
 It's hard enough to sell in these economic times without this drama.
happy now I've had my whinge!
