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:
$3.44Â USD 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.
Over the past several months, I’ve noticed that eBay has been running multiple versions of its promos simultaneously, @fivetalents — I wouldn’t be surprised if there is currently one available for sellers, too…
