eBay has reduced the upfront cost to sell for Store sellers! With eBay’s new everyday rate plans, you get from up to 150 to 2,500 FREE listings* per month—no insertion fees, auction-style or fixed price—with an eBay Stores subscription. You pay a final value fee only when you sell! Plus, the final value fees for Stores have been streamlined to just 5 competitive category-based rates as low as 4%—and never more than 9%—regardless of how you sell.
*Pay no insertion fees for your allotted free listings per calendar month. Optional fees, including advanced listing upgrades and supplemental service fees, still apply. Pay final value fees only when you sell. Motors Vehicles, Real Estate, Heavy Equipment, Concession Trailers & Carts, Imaging & Aesthetics Equipment and Commercial Printing Presses are excluded. 12 free pictures does not apply to Motors Vehicles listings. Terms are subject to change. Learn more.
Re: HOW CAN I SAFE MY FEEDBACK TRANSFERRING FROM REGULAR EBAYER TO BASIC STORE OR EVEN PREMIUM STORE?

You should NOT start paying for a store. As a new seller with a feedback of 2, you will be under strict ebay sales limits (usually 10 items a month, $500 a month max, and several other limits in categories. You need to get your limits totally removed before you consider a store at all. Stores cost at least $15 a month, and the small amount you save in listing fees will not even come close to paying for them...AND you will lose the 50 free listing fees a month you get as a regular ebay seller. Opening a store WILL NOT get your limits removed or increased.
If you doubt it, check out the fee illustrator for stores to see what it recommends.
