How much ebay takes in commission? /fees
Paypal charges you 3% ( I rounded it UP) + .30 cents per transaction
Ebay charges you 9% of total selling price PLUS shipping charges.
So if you sell an item for 90$
charge $10 shipping
totals $100 income to you
subtract 12% (3% +9 %)
subtract 30 cents paypal transaction fee per item
= $88 profit for you
( not including time, packaging etc etc)

Between ebay final value fees and paypal fees ... approx 12% - 13% of your sale price including shipping.
This is with free listing(s) (50 per month + specials)
It costs more depending on what extra services you buy.
