    Hi Guys,

    I've just made a sale on eBay and look at the fee calculation. It looks like PayPal have charged me an extra 20p. Here is the breakdown:

    Total amount: £39.99 GBP
    Fee amount: -£1.76 GBP
    Net amount: £38.23 GBP

    I am using the fees 3.4% + 20p. I expect to be charged £1.56 and not £1.76. www.clothnappytree.com/ppcalculator also agrees with me.

    What gives? I don't believe PayPal have made a mistake buy why are they charging me more?

    Thanks folks
