How is my fee refund calculated?

----------------------------------------------------------------

If you issue a full refund, PayPal will refund all the fees. If you issue a partial payment refund, the fee refund will be calculated at the same percentage as the payment refund.

For example:

Your customer buys $100.00 USD of merchandise from you. The fees for this transaction total $3.25 USD ($2.90 USD of this is variable, $0.35 USD is the fixed transaction fee, which is not refunded for partial payment refunds).

You issue a partial refund on the transaction for $40.00 USD (40% of the original amount).

PayPal issues a refund of 40% of the total fees, which in this case would be $1.16 USD (40% of the variable portion of the fee).
