Hello,

I can’t seem to find any answer in the forum. What I would like to know is, if I am using PayPal to withdraw my earnings, will there be any transaction fees being applied to me? I am really confused whether the transaction fees listed here is applicable to us authors here in Envato Marketplace who are withdrawing money using this method?

Besides, will there be any extra charges if the transaction amount exceeds certain figure, assuming there is no transaction fees? I am living in Malaysia by the way.

Thanks for replying!

Hey billyf,

For withdrawals, Envato pays the transaction fees, although you may be charged on the conversion rate :)

Yes! I think they take a 4% fee for the Indian Rupee

Bonjour, le transfert peut prendre entre 3-5 jours si c’est un virement bancaire ou chèque électronique.

PayPal est le transaction? S’il l’était, vous devriez envisager de contacter le support (Mais je pense en anglais seulement) et / ou envisager d’ouvrir un nouveau sujet en anglais (si possible)

Thanks for the reply :) Great to hear that Envato is paying the transaction fees for us. It would seem to be the best withdrawal method among all the options there ;)

Indeed, you receive the full amount that you requested on withdrawal, in your Paypal account. But remember that Paypal will take 4% when you withdraw to your credit card. So, for $500 that you receive from Envato, Paypal will take $20 when sending the money to your card.

Thanks for the information! Actually, in Malaysia, we can withdraw the money into our local bank account directly and as I know, there is no processing fees if it exceeds RM400 (~130USD). The only problem is that the exchange rate is usually quite low for us though.

That’s also not true in Romania. PayPal only takes $2.5 / transaction, so for each $500 you loose only $2.5.. Actually, i never heard of PayPal taking commission on withdrawals..

The problem is that your account is/might be EURO and the bank will convert the USD to EURO, according to their buy/sell convertion rates.
