For more details see paypal merchant fees for consumers and business on the paypal website

Note: that the fees can differ per country so make sure to visit the paypal website of the country of residence.

Our aim is to stay within a maximum of 8% seller fees, which in the case of PayPal often is the case but in certain cases can be more than 8%. Mostly this is caused by buyers using business credit cards, with a foreign currency. 

As a seller you can limit yourself to only using Stripe connect with the 8% fixed fee. This might have an effect on your sales.

The usage of Stripe connect is only available to sellers registered in the EU. Sellers outside the EU can only sign up with a PayPal merchant account.
