Hello! Nice profile pic

There are plenty of eBay and PayPal fee calculators but I don't know of any specifically for the iPhone or for mobile phones in general.

Dear Andy !

At the first thank You for good words I love this avatars too.
Positive are so needed in our life today...
As I see You are also with smile on face

None of this links are about app for iPhone: only web.
But we need small, easy for use, simple and funny application to fast one-click operation. And cup of coffee

We lost patience and mind from ugly apps for iPhone for PayPal Fee. And.... Write own.
Please take a look on our iPhone PayPal Fee Calc application in AppStore bit.ly/2A2ZSA or demo on YouTube bit.ly/4iIqpr

And for international payments (sometimes we need some equipment from Germany, Austria, Nederlands, etc) we wrote PayPal Fee Calc PRO with immediately PayPal conversation fees updates. Argh....
Really hard work on my point of wiev...

Have a nice week !

The basic inputs on an eBay fee calculator are starting price and winning bid.

More advanced options include listing upgrades and reverse fee calculation, like this: www.auctionfeecalculator.com/us_ebay_fee_calc.html

Thank You so much for pleasure answering !

What do You think about difference between this PayPal US eBay Fee Calculator (www.auctionfeecalculator.com/us_ebay_fee_calc.html) and PPCalc (www.rolbe.com/ebay.htm by Ryan Olbe) ?

I think it's better because:

  • Upgrades separated into different sections
  • It just has checkboxes to select upgrades, not confusing text boxes like the rolbe calculator
  • More whitespace makes the design much less "busy"
  • On the rolbe calculator the cost of postage and cost to acquire make the design more confusing

  • On the downside:

  • The most important "eBay listing" section is at the top right and no more prominent than the other sections
  • The quantity and checkout sections are not in a logical place - they should go with the main eBay listing section
  • I would prefer it to assume PayPal is used, as 99% of the time it is
  • "Shipping costs" is confusing - it sounds like the amount the seller pays rather than the buyer

  • For an iPhone eBay fee calculator I would want it to be really simple - assume 1 item and payment by PayPal (standard rates) and have boxes for starting price, closing bid and shipping, then show eBay and PayPal fees. Anything else could be on a separate options page.

    Thank You for more detailed answer and explaining "bottle neck" of calculator.

    We may have a time to discuss inside our developing group this. Thank You again!
    If this is possible to You give me more opinion about what do You need to see on iPhone, YOU ARE WELCOME!

    I see more then 10-15 popular web-based eBay Profit Calculator and have some frustrating about what REALLY people need ?

    What is exactly great for personal spontaneous sellers (persons, that buy or sell rarely), small companies or large (up to 200 person) eBay seller company ?

    Great thank You for suggestion! I thinking this is great not only for us but for all users of eBay Profit Calculator.

    Dear Andy !

    Believe You or not, _any of this calculators_do_not_right_calculate.

    We test more then 100 web sites (including most popular PayPal Fee Calculator bit.ly/8YehIl and spreadsheets bit.ly/9ZIvyC by Ryan Olbe) andall of them have out-of-date rates, wrong algorithm or both.

    This is the first and main that why we write PayPal Fee Calculator for iPhone. We love Mac's, Apple iPhone is great product and we need great and useful tools for our eBay activity.

    "if you want something done right you have do yourself" May be this is our case.
