Calculate Your Paypal Fees Instantly



What is the PayPal Fee Calculator?

The PayPal calculator is designed to calculate an exact amount of what it will cost to send or receive money using the platform. It will determine how much PayPal will charge for your transaction. When a company or business owner receives or sends payment through PayPal, certain transaction fees are involved. These fee rates rely on a variety of factors, such as:

  • Domestic or international payments
  • Currency conversion fees
  • Transaction amount
  • Type of PayPal account (personal or business)
  • Payment method or payment type (debit card, credit card payments, or bank account)

The site will typically ask whether this is a personal or commercial payment. This further determines the merchant fees.

Remember, there may be additional fees outside of the realm of PayPal. Some PayPal goods may carry a goods and services fee through the PayPal merchant or other providers. There may be additional taxes, shipping fees, and other costs associated with the transaction that the calculator may not pick up on.

Using the PayPal Fee Calculator

Using this calculator for online payments typically involves these steps:

  1. Enter the transaction amount (typically in USD)
  2. Select one of the many different countries PayPal serves

The calculator will then calculate and display the fees associated with the transaction. Whether you own an enterprise company, work as a freelancer, or run a non-profit, there will always be fees associated with transacting online.

It’s also important to note that PayPal’s fee structure may change over time, so it’s always a good idea to check with the official PayPal website or contact the brand directly for the most up-to-date charges.

Understanding the PayPal Fee Calculator

Our PayPal Fee Calculator is designed to make it easy to determine the fees associated with any transaction. By simply entering the transaction amount, the calculator will automatically compute the fixed fee and percentage fee, providing you with the total fee for the transaction. This tool is perfect for businesses that need to quickly and accurately calculate PayPal fees.

PayPal Fee Calculation Formula and Example

To better understand how our PayPal Fee Calculator works, let’s take a look at the formula used to calculate the fees and an example of how it’s applied.

The formula to calculate PayPal fees is:

Fee = Transaction Amount * Percentage Fee

If the transaction is international, an additional fee is added:

Total Fee = Fee + (Transaction Amount * International Fee) + Fixed Fee

For international transactions, the Percentage Fee is 2.99%, the International Fee is 1.50%, and the Fixed Fee varies based on the currency.

For example, the fee for a $100 domestic transaction would be:

Fee = $100 * 0.0299 = $2.99

The fee for a $100 international transaction to the UK (with a fixed fee of £0.39) would be:

Total Fee = $2.99 + ($100 * 0.015) + £0.39 = $4.49 + £0.39
Transaction AmountDomestic FeeInternational Fee (Example: UK)
$10$0.30$0.44 + £0.39
$50$1.50$2.24 + £0.39
$100$2.99$4.49 + £0.39
