Transaction Fees for Domestic Payments

Sending money

With PayPal it’s always free to pay for your online purchases. There are just low fees for receiving payments.

If you send a personal payment to friends and family it is free for you as well. The only exception are credit card payments – but here you can decided if you or the recipient should pay the fee.

Furthermore PayPal offers many services at no cost:

  • No monthly fees to maintain a PayPal account.
  • No setup fees.
  • No gateway fees.
  • No fees for multiple eBay and merchant tools.

Receiving purchase payments

The standard rate for receiving payments for goods and services is 3.4 %.

If you receive more than 4'000.00 CHF per month, you're eligible to apply for PayPal's Merchant Rate - which lowers your fees as your sales volume increases. Your fees can be as low as 1.9 %, based on your previous month's sales volume.
