This business activity should be reported on Schedule C, which TurboTax Self Employed does support.

You certainly can report these fees on line 10 of the Schedule C - "Commissions and fees" - or you could report them on line 27a - "Other expenses (from line 48", explicitly naming then as "Ebay and PayPal fees".  You do report 100% of your fees.

100% of those expenses will reduce your profit by that much.

The amount of tax owed will only be reduced by a percentage of those expenses.
