PayPal updated fees

To the German article

With the recent launch of PayPal Checkout, PayPal's product offerings and services continue to grow. To accommodate these expanded possibilities, PayPal has adjusted the standard fees for merchants. The fees went into effect in August 2022.


____Migrate to PayPal Checkout before 31 December 2022 and keep fees until 31. July 2023* ____

Merchants who migrate from an existing PayPal product to PayPal Checkout before 31 December 2022 will benefit from a better product and retain their current fees until 31 July 2023. From 1 August 2023, the updated fees according to the GTC will apply.

* Switching to PayPal Checkout applies: (1) The activation of PayPal as a payment method as well as at least one additional function (Pay Later, SEPA-Lastschrift, Debit, and Credit Card Payment, Payment Upon Invoice) and (2) The execution of at least 3 successful PayPal Checkout transactions before 31 December 2022.
