You math is off. At PayPal it would be $2.90 + .30 cents for a total of $3.20 Edit: eBay limits what services you can use, see link below. Of all the online payment services listed PayPal is the one that almost everyone uses. Thus you are stuck offering it since few if any buyers will use the other ones. I have a real business with a real warehouse and store. That means I also have a credit card merchant account to accept credit card payments directly. It costs MORE than PayPal charges. There are some benefits to becoming a PowerSeller but they aren't all that great, (see second link). Mostly you get discount rates at the post office. It will probably be some time before you come close to that anyway.

The fees are excessive but they have the exposure. You can try somewhere else. You can reduce the fees with a high volume store but no real way to sell and avoid the fees.
