PayPal fees on transactions up to $3,000 is 2.9% + .30. That's a flat $.30 fee per transaction, plus 2.9% of the total transaction.
That's standard for a payment processor. I think I pay more than that for my merchant account...
I did not boycott either. Like others here have stated, eBay is the ONLY place where there's a market for my items. And I make good money. My average ending price is $11.12, and I have nearly a 100% sell-through rate.
Frankly, I find some of the outrage regarding eBay's most recent changes slightly childish. I don't mean this to hurt anyone, everyone is entitled to their opinions, and that's mine. I don't really care if I can't leave feedback for a buyer. Like I said on another forum, I do my absolute best to keep customers satisfied, and I haven't had any negative feedbacks. eBay can change, but my reputation isn't going to.
