That seems really high. Between eBay and Paypal the seller's fees would have been about 10% of the selling price- $ 178.00 in your case. Have seller's fees gone up that much recently?

Now that Ebay stopped allowing sellers to get their money via Paypal, the fees have gone up.

Ebay now charges 12.55% of all sales, which sounds like less than what it used to be (10% to eBay and $.29 + 2.9% to PayPal), but there's a sneaky catch. Ebay charges 12.55% on the total payment, including the portion of the payment made up from shipping and any sales tax they collect. This means I end up paying about 1.5% per sale more than the actual 12.55% they advertise. 14% starts to feel like a a lot

I've recently started selling stuff on Mercari. They only charge commission on the portion of the sale that goes to me. They never charge commission on sales tax or shipping charges. That's how it should be. There doesn't seem to be much in the way of mini bikes on there, but I sell a lot of video games and electronics on there. It's a much easier process through and through

Some categories are less but nothing I sell in. I calculated 13% on this sale, you can't beat the traffic eBay gets still.

The worst part of their takeover for me has been the time to get funds to my bank, Paypal was getting money to me same day or next at most, if I sell something on a Friday now it won't reach my bank until Wednesday.

Yeah, they're still holding funds for me too -- and I was a power seller for years. I used to get my money the second someone made a payment. Now it takes a minimum of 3 business days, sometimes longer depending on the amount.

Did you have a reserve price on it? They nail you for an extra 7.5% on those now. Category you listed in was for antique motorcycle parts but still should have been around 13%. Check your seller account, you pay fees on the TOTAL eBay collects from the buyer including taxes. I've been struggling with that last issue for a couple years since PayPal started doing it as well.

Yeah, they have made it really confusing and very much in their favor within the last year. I think the way to go with them now is a Ebay Motors Powersports vehicle listing if the bike is worth 1000k+. Otherwise set the starting bid at your "reserve" price to dodge that fee.
