How does having your customers cover the fees work?
Basically, with the Add Fees feature turned on, your PayPal fees will automatically be added to the cost of all of the line items on any invoice or estimate you create.
For example, Let’s say you have two items on your bill with a cost of $10.00 each.
Your invoice total is $20.00. In this example, your PayPal fees are 2.9% of the invoice total plus 30 cents, so your fee total for this invoice is 88 cents. Since you have two items on your invoice, the fee is split two ways and added to each item. In this case, 44 cents is added to each item.
