The sender pays Payout fees at transaction time. Fees vary by sending country, are calculated as a percentage of each transaction, and are capped. Typically, the variable component is 2% and the domestic payments cap differs from the international payments cap. For detailed information about payout fees, see the PayPal Merchant Fees page.

The funding PayPal account for a payout request must hold the total payout amount plus any fees in the currency being sent. A payout item has these limits but the maximum total payout amount is unlimited:
