PayPal takes 2.9% plus 30 cents.  eBay fees are based on the category and type of listing you have.  It can go up to 13%.  Fees for both are based on the total price of the transaction (actual item plus shipping charges).  Please note that eBay Motors charges different fees.

Paypal will take an additional 1% (crossborder fee) if the payment is made by a non-US Paypal account.

According to an eBay phone rep, "eBay deducts 10% or up to $250 while Paypal receives 2.9% + $0.30 of the transaction."
