Paypal, ClickAndBuy, Google Checkout, NoChex and Worldpay Fees

Here’s more a reminder to myself and all figures are based off “base rates” currently provided by the various Payment gateways. Check the figures yourself before using them as they may have changed. I can’t accept any liability for how you use this information.

Paypal charge a fixed fee of £0.20 and 3.4% of each transaction. To figure out the gross figure from the net, use the formula: (net+0.20)/(1-(3.4/100)).

Click and Buy charge a fixed fee of £0.35 and 1.9% of each transaction.

Google Checkout charges a fixed fee of £0.15 and 1.5% of each transaction.

NoChex’s Seller Account charges a fixed fee of £0.20 and 2.9% of each transaction.

Worldpay IMA charges a fixed fee of £0.15 and 3.35% of each transaction (along with a £15 monthly fee and £75 setup fee) [note this is for their current “New Business Deal”, normally they charge £30 per month with a £200 setup fee and £4.50% on credit/charge cards and a flat £0.50 on UK Debit Cards: along with £0.06 per transaction for Fraud Detection]

SecureTrading charges 3.29% on each transaction (subject to a minimum fee of £15 per month with a further £15 per month service fee and a one-off setup fee of £300)


The highest fixed fee is ClickAndBuy at £0.35 (lowest is Google Checkout and Worldpay at £0.15) and the highest percentage is Paypal at 3.4% (lowest is Google Checkout at 1.5%)

To accept £10 via them, you would need to charge:
ClickAndBuy: £10.55
Paypal: £10.56
Google Checkout: £10.30
NoChex: £10.50
Worldpay: £10.50

To accept £100 via them, you would need to charge:
ClickAndBuy: £102.29
Paypal: £103.73
Google Checkout: £101.68
NoChex: £103.19
Worldpay: £103.62

This means that, despite my best intentions, it may no longer be accurate.

This blog holds over 12 years of archived content - during that time, I may have changed my opinion of something, technology will have advanced (and old "best standards" may no longer be the case), my technology "know how" has improved etc etc - it would probably take me a considerable amount of time to update all the archival entries: and defeat the point of keeping them anyway.

Please take these posts for what they are: a brief look into my past, my history, my journey and "caveat emptor".
