Swappa Fee Explained 

Swappa makes it easy and safe to buy and sell quality tech devices. However, it charges buyers a small fee. Sellers also incur PayPal fees for sold products. PayPal's fees are 3.49% + $0.49 per transaction, but may vary.

Sellers see two types of fees listed in the transaction information for any payment they get from a sale.

  1. The first fee is the one charged by PayPal or the standard fee. It's always highlighted in the transaction details as well as in the seller's PayPal account history.
  2. The second fee is the Partner fee, which sellers may notice when checking transaction details. Partner fee is added as part of a PayPal transaction. On Swappa, it is a combination of sales tax (where applicable) and Swappa fee. The buyer pays the partner fee. For example, if a seller sells a phone for $150, they would set their ask price to be $150 when they create a listing. The seller gets $150 minus the PayPal fee when you buy the phone.

You can get a refund for a sale fee if the sale is void. The money you pay to Swappa is a service fee. If Swappa doesn't perform its services as advertised, leading to a failed sale, you're entitled to a refund. But the refunds are subject to PayPal's refund limitations, and Swappa doesn't provide reimbursements of sales outside of PayPal's refund window. 

If you decide to void a sale through no fault of the seller, Swappa won't be entitled to a refund of the sale fee, and the refund, in this case, will be at the discretion of Swappa's support team.
