The problem isn't necessarily paypal and their 3%.

Ebay $50 per month just to have the store
It's ebay's 5 cents per month per listing (store)
11% of the sale price (store)
taking a percentage of the shipping charge
3% paypal + 30 cents (can be a killer on a $5 or less item)
shipping charges going up what seems like all the time

Customers complaining that shipping charges are too high. How does someone sell a $2 item on ebay and charge exact shipping? Why bother?
