United Kingdom PayPal Fees Structure

PayPal offers multiple products, both online and offline (with or without additional hardware), and they all charge different fees. They take a percentage of the total transaction amount and, sometimes, a fixed fee.

PayPal no longer offers further discounts based on your monthly transaction amount.
No matter whether you sell £5 or £100,000, you will pay the same percentage plus fixed fee.
