I feel like clicking the Buy It Now button just to be petty now.
If he sells through eBay $530 he gets $461 then minus shipping fees about $15 so $446.
Through PayPal is $465 minus shipping.
So pretty much the same
Sometimes eBay sends quality sellers offers. For instance, instead of the normal 10% final value fee that people typically get charged, eBay has offered me just a $5 final value fee for selling in some categories. Plus, eBay can give people a better sense of security.
So eBay and PayPal will have their own benefits. I sell through both depending on the situation.
