How do fees work on Swappa?

Swappa marketplace fees are simple, transparent, and lower than the competition.

Each party (seller and buyer) pays a flat 3% Swappa sale fee.

  • Sellers pay 3% of the Ask Price. So if you list an item with a $100 ask price, you pay $3 to Swappa and receive a payment of $97 (minus PayPal payment processing fees).
  • Buyers pay 3%, which is added to the seller's Ask Price when setting the Listing Price. In other words, a listing with a $100 Ask Price will have a $103 listing price. The buyer then pays $103 plus tax (when required).

Note: Buyers with international PayPal accounts are expected to cover any additional costs a seller may incur over the domestic 3.49% + $0.49 PayPal fee. Sellers should explain this adjustment in a comment on the private sale page.
