Electromagnetic transitions of ##\psi(2S)##

When the ##\psi(2s)## particle decays also the following two transitions are observed

$$\psi(2S) \rightarrow \gamma + \eta({1}^S_0)$$
$$\psi(2S) \rightarrow \gamma + \chi_{c0}({3}^P_0)$$

The branching fraction for the first decay is about ##3.4*10^{-3}## while it's ##9.7*10^{-2}## for the second one.
Where does the difference come from?

Why do you think it should be the same?
