25% on small items? mmm, not that i know of. even my smaller items are 7-10% then about 3% for paypal. nothing is ever over 15%. if you're eating shipping costs, then that's a different matter.
when selling big items on ebay, require a nonrefundable deposit. that will kill the deadbeats, and even if you get one, the deposit will pay for your fees and then some for the hassle. if they try to chargeback, use the nonrefundable deposit link to your auction. paypal generally looks for goods exhanged and delivered, they generally overlook binding agreements such as deposits, so you have to show proof of what the charge was for.
