FORGOT TO POINT OUT

Ebay and Paypal are one and the same company joined at the hip.

Who was first? I dont know.

They double-ding ya on commission.

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.

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)
