    hi

    how do pay your fees, do you pay it every time an item ends so it doesnt add up
    or do you pay by monthly and see that stress amount?

    They charge you every month based on what you list and sell.
    You can set up auto payments via CC or PP.

    If it just for statistics i also pay at the end of the month. Actually there are no big difference when to pay, anyway you will have to pay and it is no matter you pay after sale or end of the month the total will be the same. For some people its feel better to not to have any debt in their account, but the trueth is the same all the way down.

    The prepaid method is preferred by eBay. Generally when you become a high volume seller, PayPal keeps 10% of all of your transactions in a reserve account that you cant touch for 22 or up to 90 days. You dont have to, but its what PayPal wants to move you out of the potential risk bracket. So I keep about $2000 in my eBay account prepaid in fee's, because that's about what I spend in fee's each month.
