Question
Hello there - I would like to sell an electronic item on the Play.com web site. I have the pro-trader account and make the \$19.99 extra fee to sell unlimited items.

If I make a sale on Play.com - a fee of 10% is charged. If I want to transfer the cash in to my bank account there is an extra charge of 5% transfer fee on the balance I choose to transfer.

So, if I listed an electronic item for \$22.15 including postage and packing, after 10% commission fee what would the balance in my play.com account be?

And if I wanted to transfer my play.com - after 5% commission fee - what would the funds be in my bank account?

From my calculations, I get \$20.00 after the 10% commission and 5% fee. Is this correct? if not, please provide me a formula to use.

Thank you.
Craig,

I'm sorry I am not familiar with Play.com, I don't see how the 19.99 extra fee is related to your question.

Nevertheless if you sell something for \$22.15 the 10% commission would be \$2.22 (assuming they round up from \$2.215). These would leave you with \$19.97. To transfer this to your bank the 5% commission would be \$1.00 leaving you with \$18.97 in your bank.

If you want a formula, just take the amount you sell something for and divide it by 1.155 to see how much is left in your bank account. If if you want a certain amount in your bank account, multiply it by 1.155 to see how much you have to sell.

For example 1.155*20=23.10 so you need to see something for \$23.10 to end up with a net of \$20 in your bank.
