PayPal Fee Calculator is calculating correctly?

Post by Victor » Wed May 08, 2019 9:19 am

The paypal fee calculator is not calculating correctly the fees...i have the standard rate of (3.4%+0.35€) for the payments that i receive, but then in the paypal site, the fees that i have to support are not the same that i get in this/your site..

For example for a payment of 14.90€
The "paypal fee calculator" calculate 0.86€ in fees
but the paypal summary of the transfer of 14.90€ shows the collection of a paypal fee higher than that calculated on your site, 1.01€ instead of 0.86€. What is wrong?

The calculator shows the fee for the rate selected (3.4% + .35) in the calculator. The fee formula for your particular transaction may be different, so please ensure the correct fee formula is used (e.g. domestic vs. international). In your scenario, it appears that 4.4% + .35 was the fee formula applied.

A transaction of 14.90 using a fee rate of 4.4% + .35: ... 35&m=1&c=1.
