PayPal Fee Calculator FAQs

How should I use the PayPal Fee Calculator?

When you know the total amount you’ll be receiving, simply put it into the calculator to determine how much the online transaction processing fee will be should you use PayPal.

How do you calculate the “You should ask for” amount?

We take your original invoice total and add in the PayPal processing fee (2.9% + $0.30 per transaction). If you choose to have your client cover the cost of this processing fee, this number reflects the total amount you should invoice.
