Type your selling price in the “Sold Price” field and the numbers below will show what you will net after fees.

Sold price    
After fee
PayPal 2.9% + .30¢
Reverb + Direct Checkout (Preferred) 3.5% + 2.5% + 25¢
Reverb + Direct Checkout (Normal) 3.5% + 2.7% + 25¢
Reverb or eBay (Guitars & Basses) + PayPal 3.5% + 2.9% + 30¢
eBay + PayPal 10% + 2.9% + 30¢

This started as a personal spreadsheet but I shared it with a few friends and it seemed to be useful so here is the Gear Fee Calculator provided with no promise it’s accurate, implication that you won’t get lowballed, or intention that it will change your life for the better.

It’s currently listed in dollars, but if the fees are the same in your country, the currency shouldn’t matter since it’s just applying a percentage, not doing a currency conversion.

Planned updates: Make the layout responsive-ish. Add Reverb’s Direct Checkout—it’s slightly cheaper than Reverb + Paypal.
