eBay Fees Calculator 8.2 by Ryan Olbe (updated July 12, 2011)

that is your bible. a new eBay member looks like this on a $100 sale:

sale: $100
Ebay fee: $9.00
PayPal Fee: $3.20
Take Home: $87.80 (minus shipping and product cost of course)

But once you hit top rated seller and PayPal lowers your fees:

Sale: $100
Ebay Fee: $6.85
PayPal fee: $2.50
Take Home: $90.56

that makes a huge difference if you're doing 20+ sales like that. hrrrm, I could break the cardinal rule and tell you guys EXACTLY how a box of magic sale goes for me (we do at least 30 of those a week). But like, isn;t is dumb of me to reveal how much I pay on product?
