    The wife has started selling lots of clothes on ebay, is there a simple way in the ‘seller account’ to see how much has been made after postage, ebay and paypal fees have been deducted?

    thanks

    It might be too depressing if it did.

    Not one I’ve ever found, PP fees certainly not either.

    Maybe if you have a business account.

    If you go into the all selling tab you can look at a breakdown of what you’ve sold .

    That’s gross,

    you need to remove Ebay fees, Paypal fees, Postage, returns processing etc

    Yep, I try not to think about it too much 😉

    ^^^^ good point .

    I’ve never really tried doing it in eBay but assuming you’re always using Paypal (and pay your eBay invoices via Paypal as well) then you can get good information that way.

    Paypal / Activity / Detailed

    Will give you a ‘spreadsheet’ of all your transactions showing the Paypal fees for each. If you click on statements/activity export you can download the data into Excel (or similar) and strip out your purchases if you use Paypal for buying and selling.

    I suppose you need to add postage costs but I buy most of my postage through eBay anyway (it’s easy and doesn’t cost any more) so those costs go through paypal as well.
