PayPal question for new eBayer

I've just sold a load of stuff on eBay. The buyers all paid the full amount but I haven't received the full amount e.g one thing was £152 and I got £146.63. I assume this is fees of some sort but are PayPal fees the same as eBay fees? Will there be more charges from eBay or is this it?

No you pay eBay fees and PayPal fees, even though they were the same company at one point...

Imagine you sell an item for £95 plus £5 shipping. ebay will show the transaction amount of £100. The amount going into your Paypal account will be £96.40 (-3.4% commission and also a 20p fee). After that, when the billing time for ebay comes around, they will take a cut of 10% on the transaction amount, so that's an additional £10. This means after all fees you'll receive £86.40.

(No guarantees on the maths, I might have gone astray somewhere.)
