I'm not familiar with the PayPal fees (though I can imagine that they
take their share) - is there a static fee for your account type, or is
it mostly percentages?

For "home users", it will probably be a bit much paying 10 euro/pounds
monthly. Can't you make it 5 at least? You are European, right? So I
guess you can't even take advantage of the weak dollar...
