To receive a cross border commercial payment in the UK from Malawi, is (variable rate fee) 3.4% + 2% = 5.4% + 20p (fixed rate fee). Then there is currency conversion fee on your end when sending the money which is 3.5% and also taking into account the exchange rate PayPal uses from USD to GBP which would be shown when you checkout. So you'll have to take that amount and then deduct 5.4% + 20p off it and that's hopefully the amount your brother receives in GBP.
