yeah i don't think you understand the huge benefit that ebay has having it's own payment system, where they can charge you whatever the hell they want and operate in as poor a way as they want. notice how paypal is the only method of payment allowed now? mention that you accept MO's in your auction, and it will be pulled.
workout the amount of money that ebay is making per sale, including what they get from listing fees + final value fees + paypal fees. their cut is enormous, in part because they own the payment system.
