PayPal Fee Unusually High - Why?


PayPal Fee Unusually High - Why?

Normally, the PP fee on my account is about 3%.


I just had a transaction in which the PP fee was 13.5%.


Can anyone shed light on this?


It has never been this high before.


And, I used PP's "PayPal Here ... card reader.)

Re: PayPal Fee Unusually High - Why?

Sounds not right - normal fees are 2.9% + $.30 per transaction on the total amount however, if using PayPal Here, the fees are as follows:

  • 2.7% per US card swipe
  • 3.5% + $0.15 to key in cards
  • 2.9% + $0.30 to invoice
  • 1.5% for cross-border transfers


Was this a high dollar amount sale and a manual input or no card present sale ??   Any currency conversions ??
