It was my understanding that the donation would be 100% of the net proceeds from the auction. Instead, I'm being charged 100% of the auction price, and then I'm supposed to just eat the $15 Paypal is charging me? In the description of this program it very cleverly noted that eBay would waive its fees, but evidently they're still going to get their Paypal fees for the actual payment from the buyer. I find that somewhat misleading and disingenuous since they are the same company, so it's not like there's two different entities there. Seems more like you're wanting 103% of the auction value and making people actually pay extra money out of their pocket without really telling people that's how it's going to work. Very much not cool. I think from now on I'll just list the auctions normally and pay the charities on my own. At least then I won't get blindsided by fees I wasn't aware I was going to have to pay.
