Anyone noticed ebay/Paypal shipping is wrong?  When I tried to use paypal rate it said $47.06 to ship 5.9lb usps priority ny to ca.  on my Stamps.com it is only 23.81!  I have noticed this on many of my packages lately.  Why are paypal rates so high?

If the buyer got charged the eBay/PayPal rates that means they (eBay) are overcharging shipping which means they and PayPal get more fees. This is a known problem as well as sales tax overcharging. Probably on purpose. Stamps.com rates are correct.

I have NOT. repeat NOT seen anything at ALL like what you are reporting. You DO KNOW that Priority is Both WEIGHT/Distance zoned AND Dimensional Weight charged if beyond zone 5, right? You must enter the dimensions to the next FULL inch L x W x H .

angryllama is likely correct - something involving dimensional rates.  I would suggest you check the actual dimensions showing on your eBay listing.  If the L x W x D measurements go over 1728 cubic inches, you are in the penalty zone.
