    Welcome to the Board.

    Your problem can't be solved unless you know how the listing fee and P&P vary. Tell us that and someone will give you the formulas.

    You can shorten Andrews formula in B2 somewhat with the following if you like:

    B2 = -ROUND((MAX(B1-30,0)*2%+B1*3.25%),2)

    Also, I think Andrew needed MIN not MAX at the start of his formula.

    Default Ebay Fees

    John

    I have been playing around with an Ebay Fee / Net Sale Value Calculator.

    It is not fully tested but you are welcome to have a look.

    Let me know if you would like it
