So things worked out, customer didn't seem to read the email to clearly, just canceled and paid the invoice I sent. He was confused about the lack of shipping costs, had to explain again that I would pay shipping.
Everything worked out, taking the package to work with me so I can ship it out at lunch time and update customer with a tracking number.
How much did I make? What does Ebay and Paypal charge?
-$21.17 (Paypal charge for the $535 transaction)
-$49.54 (Ebay Charge)
Left over... $464.29. Now minus the shipping I had to pay due to my eBay account error.
Grand Total $403.34.
Yikes. Last time I sold something on eBay (it's been yeeeeears), no matter how much you sold it for, you were charged things like 18 cents a picture, a buck for the listing... so you had more control over the cost, and it would come out to be $12 max daddy with pics.
In the future I won't be selling painted armies, only individual units or battleforce sized. Starting bids will be alot higher. Would've been better to learn this monetary lesson with my Orks, however no worries I'll keep trucking forward.
Footnote, I now understand why sellers cannot possibly give the discounts on 40k that I think they should give. If ebay is charging 10% (9+listing fee) of the sell price, that's a 10% discount that you can't get.
