    PayPal will not let you do that what you need to do is just up your prices to cover this.

    Couldn't you just add another tax rule, and call it paypal fees?

    Yes but as that would go to PayPal as "paypal fees" as soon as they see it your account could be stopped or frozen with all funds in it. As in is in there ruil's you can not chagre the client your fees on top of the price that any other client can buy the goods for using any other payment type on your site.

    So you could do it if you only offer PayPal.
    But would you not then just add the % that PayPal charge on to your prices?

    The other way to look at it is that it is a overhead of YOURS not your clients.

    SO PLEASE ACT LIKE A BUSINESS AND BUILD YOUR OVERHEADS IN YOUR PRICES AND IF THAT MAKE YOUR PRICES TO HIGH THEN JUST STAND BACK AND THINK!

    Yeah, it's just another way for paypal to charge you (e.g ebay has listing fee, % sale fee, then paypal fees). I personally build it into my expenses, and only offer annual subscriptions for low plans.
