I’ve heard it argued here and on other sites that the seller is paid the full amount and that eBay eats the 15%. Well not so according to the PayPal accounting for part of my order:
Payment to seller
Since I have never sold an item during one of these promotions, I can’t verify the PayPal statement but “Payment to seller” was bolded in the email to me and it sure looks to me like the seller takes the hit.?
I highly doubt it. EBay is notorious with shoddy reports not showing up the discounts properly.
