Canadian Exchange

Hello, I need some help here. Maybe I am just overthinking this. The buyer is in Canada. He is has agreed to cover shipping costs and PayPal costs. The item I am selling is $120 US. Shipping is $25 US. That makes my total before PayPal Fees $145. What would be the PayPay Fee for that amount? My ultimate question is: What should he have to send in CAN dollars on his end so that I receive the $145 US + the amount of money to cover PayPal Fees? This is what I originally figured: (assuming 1 US Dollar is equal to $1.31 Canadian Dollar) (assuming cross border rate is 3.9% + 0.30 per transaction) US Dollars-------> $120.00 (item) + $25.00 (shipping) + $6.12 (paypal fee) = $151.12 CAN Dollars------> $156.62 (item) + $32.64 (shipping) + $7.99 (paypal fee) = $197.28 If anybody could throw me some help I would greatly appreciate it! Thank you in advance!

You can invoice him or ask him to pay you in your currency easily enough.

You should not ask your buyer to pay your seller fees.
