    How do you deal with paypal fees on your shopping cart. I have tried all morning to find out what percentage they are charging me....being match challenged I should be able to figure it out from a payment and the fee....does anyone know? Vicki

    I believe it varies as there is a percentage plus a per activity fee. Thus if you tried to find a common denominator, you would only be frustrated.

    Here's the page that displays fees. It looks like most transactions are 1.9 to 2.9% + 30 cents.

    On larger payments to me the 3% didn't work, so that extra 30 cents does make sense now. Or maybe it was when they paid by credit card via paypal...either way I have no idea how I am going to put this into my online cart. vicki
     
  6. you just mark your prices up very slightly to account for it. Or absorb it.
    If your soap is $5 each or 3 for $13 IRL just make it $5.25 each and 3 for $14 or whatever on yyour site.
