If you are based in the USA, sales tax will be applied and collected by eBay and will be documented on PayPal for each transaction. Warning: the way they tabulate the refund of the sales taxes are wonky currently and it's being looked at by eBay:

https://community.ebay.com/t5/Shipping-Returns/Sales-Tax-Refund-rip-off/m-p/30608824#M306691

 

Otherwise, in general PayPal fees will be deducted and any applicable currency exchange/conversion fees may apply.

 

To find the fees schedule or list, visit this page, click your country and scroll down to the bottom of the page and click "Fees": https://www.paypal.com/webapps/mpp/country-worldwide

 

eBay will send you an invoice for their fees every month and you pay that separately.


Kudos & Solved are greatly appreciated. 🙂
