I am not an Amazon seller unfortunately and I am not based in the US. I can’t reply to your questions, sorry, but apart your calculations, I would take in consideration another matter, which is that Amazon is undoubtedly a better channel for “consumer electronics”, as far as I know. Maybe you pay more fees, but they should be definitely compensated by much more transactions for that kind of products’ category… glad to hear any tip from users who are more informed.
There is an error in my table.
I see that PayPal variable fee is more for international payments: for US users, there’s a 4.4% transaction fee plus a fixed fee based on currency received. I could not find which the fix fee is when receiveing money.
(@fedege96: Consumer electronics can also be spare parts. In this case eBay is probably a better place, but that’s another question. Here, I just want to compare the fees for international sales with the two marketplaces and their most commonly used payment system.)
thank you for clarification, I misunderstood the “consumer electronics” category, that’s very different in my ebay site.
I can only add another variable to your work. PayPal change rate is extremely complicated to track if you sell on other websites with other currencies. Then there is that variable % on foreign transaction, but as far as I know, I have a specific % depending on which country I receive money from. Payment from US have a different % then other countries, but maybe there are just differences between our websites. Fixed amount is 0,35€ and I think 0,30$ in the US. Very complicated to track down PayPal fees…
