    if you become a top rated seller on ebay- your fees can get reduced by 20 percent I believe

    PayPal charges sellers a fee of between 1.4% and 3.4% on the total sale amount plus a 20p per transaction. The fee depends on how much you sell so the more you sell, the less you pay.

    Your monthly sales up to: £1,500 ||| £1,500 - £6,000 ||| £6,000 - £15,000 ||| 15,000 - £55,000 ||| + £55,000Transaction fee: 3.4% + 20p ||| 2.9% + 20p ||| 2.4% + 20p ||| 1.9% + 20p ||| 1.4% + 20p

    Change ebay account type to business. Your fees will be reduced by 50% for some categories.
    - Set up paypal merchant account - google it. It reduces paypal fees based on sales. I've got 5k + sales a month and i think i've got 2.9% on paypal now.

    No way to really reduce these fee's besides becoming a top rated seller and dealing in higher volume.
