What’s the difference between selling on Ebay and having an Ebay store?

Ebay stores are great to not just sell items on Ebay, but it great to have items listed there long term for people to buy. The fees to list an item in an Ebay store is considerably cheaper than listing in an auction or buy it now. When the item sells from a store you pay a selling fee. If you just want to sell a few things on eBay then an Ebay store is not for you. However if you have regular items to sell or a product from your external business it is a great way to get extra sales.

    As a Dutch person can I open a US store?
    And you have to pay a monthly fee + you have to pay a fee for every product you sell? Won’t it become a bit expensive that way?
