eBay fees, PayPal and Listing

hi, I'm sure you can help me, just need a quick clarification!

I understand it that when you sell an item PayPal charge a percentage is taken off the money the item makes at the time of sale, eBay also charge a listing fee, do they also charge a final value fee in addition to the PayPal one (i.e. 7% or something goes to eBay SA eurl)? The money comes out my account each month so it's not too transparent to me! I know about the eBay fee calculators, just wanted to know if the final value fee is taken out by both paypal for using their service and eBay for making loads of moola (I know they are the same company, but it's not too clear to me what type of fees are present, many thanks in advance

paypal charge you 3.4% + 20p (less if you have merchant or business account)
ebay charge listing fee & FVF of 10% (less if u powerseller)

ebay fees are added to your account, you can set ebay to take the fees from your paypal once a month or use a pay it now button thats in your account area

You have lisitng fees, then final value fee and you also have paypal fees. Its a rip off.

repped fae and Marz! that's what I thought, I was like : Huuuuuuuuhhhhhh, been an ebayer for ages, but it's amazing what a rip sometimes, it's harsh! right i'm off to drink some V energy drink to console myself

I still sell on ebay but only if its something expensive and goes for over the odds.
