Regarding the ebay UK fees, what's the percentage you paying for an item sold?
I'm an eBay business store user with the basic store plan. Final value fees I've got to pay for the category are 11% ebay + 3.4%+20p. So I've sold an item and noticed that I've been charged more than 11+3.4=14.4+20p.
So lets say I've sold an item for 59.49.
Ebay Fees: 6.54
PayPal Fees: 2.02+20p=2.20p
Initial charge taken by ebay for an item was 7.85 excluding the paypal fees, which left me guessing where did the other 1.31 go.
Rang up ebay and asked them what happened. I was told that every business store user has to pay 20% VAT, therefore the formula then is 59.49x0.11=6.54
Out of 6.54 they add 20% extra on it:
So turns out you've got to pay final value fees+VAT+paypal fees? Is this what you all pay or there's a way around it? I remember listing an item a month ago and saw an option to charge a certain % of VAT, however can't see it anymore.
