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.

Maybe:
BOOK8
ABCD
1Price100.00
2Fees-8.53
3Other-3.60
4P&P-1.00
5Net86.87
Sheet1

Formulas (list fee and P&P assumed at 1):

B2 =-ROUND((MAX(30,B1)*5.25%)+((B1>30)*((B1-30)*3.25%)+1),2)
B3 =-ROUND((B1*3.4%)+0.2,2)
B5 =SUM(B1:B4)

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.

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

Mark
