How to Calculate PayPal Fees

Here's a step by step instructions on how to calculate PayPal Fees based on 3.49% + $0.49 for each transaction.
PayPal Fee = amount*0.0349 + $0.49, where the amount is the price that sellers charge for their product.


PayPal Fees Example

If an eBay seller listed an item for sale at a retail price of $10, and he wants to know how much is the PayPal fee after he sold his item, and how much would he receive.

Step 1: Plugin the PayPal fee formula
PayPal Fee = amount*0.0349 + $0.49

Step 2: Calculate the PayPal fees
PayPal Fee = $10 x 0.0349 + $0.49 = $0.59,
which is the fee that PayPal charges.

Step 3: Calculate how much the seller receives
Seller Receives = $10 - $0.95 = $9.41.

By subtracting the PayPal fees from the listing price, we get $9.41 as the seller's profit for selling his items on eBay.


How much is the PayPal fee for $100?

Let's learn how much the PayPal fee is for $100.
Using the same formula as the above, we plug in the number

Final Fee = $100 x 0.0349 + $0.49 = $3.49 + $0.49 = $3.98.
Therefore, the PayPal fee for a $100 product is $3.98.


How much to charge?

What if we want to know how much to charge if we want to receive $100 from a transaction after subtracting the PayPal fees.

In this case, we will need to use the following formula
Charge Amount = (x + fixed fee)/(1 - percent fee), where
x = the amount you want to receive

Plugin the $100 to the formula, and we get

Charge Amount = (100 + 0.49)/(1 - 0.0349) = 100.49 / 0.9651 = $104.12

Therefore, if we want to receive $200 from selling an item using PayPal, we must charge $104.12 for the item.



Following is a PayPal fee table that shows how much transaction fees you have to pay based on the standard 3.49% + $0.49 fees.

* Amount - product price
* Pay Fees - fees that PayPal charges
* Received - amount received by merchants after PayPal fees
