Get $20 instead of $19.12 using PayPal fee calculator



I use PayPal a lot for ebay purchases and also for organizing group buys with my MINI Cooper club. It's convenient but it's important to remember the fees involved. When receiving money for multiple or large-ticket items those fees can add up quickly with a large impact to your bottom line. Wouldn't it be great to have an easy way to calculate the PayPal fees in advance to you could roll some of the fees into the money you collect? Well how about a PayPal fee calculator?


Using the calculator, written by Ryan Olbe, You can either calculate how much you'll get after fees if someone sends you $20 or how much to charge in advance if you want to end up with $20. And if you want to figure out your ebay fees too, click on the "Other fee calculators" button to go to ebay and various other calculators for popular sites.
