    Maybe this was going on for a while with PayPal but I just tried to figure out this math. I know it would be 3% fee in the past for EBay transaction and it may have went to 4%.......I can't find the info on either website.

    So I wonder since my state and other states collect tax are they basing the fee off the additional money getting collected on tax too?

    See my 2 attachments and try to figure out the % of the fee and what they are basing it off of.

    I will be calling PayPal for someone to explain it to me.

    Like I said I really never studied my PayPal fees so this could have been the way for years on my account. I just assumed they were still running the same way.

    Thanks for the info. But the math still doesn't add up .....$4.81 would be the charge for one of my attachments. That would be based off the total amount with tax.

    I wouldn't even think the seller should be getting charged additional for the state collecting tax. That's just getting ripped off.

    Standard PayPal fee is 2.9% + .30. Looking at your numbers and at PayPal site, it looks like that fee is the International Rate. I just copied this from PayPal site. Was your buyer not in country?

    Sales within the US 2.9% + $0.30 per transaction
    Discounted rate for eligible charities 2.2% + $0.30 per transaction
    International sales 4.4% transaction fee plus a fixed fee based on currency received
    PayPal HereTM card reader 2.7% when you swipe a card or 3.5% plus $0.15 for manually entered transactions
