I’m not sure I understand your question. If you know the conversion rate and the fee, then isn’t it just a matter of multiplying and adding?

So at a rate of 0.71, you would multiply the amount by 0.71 and then add the fee. But of course the rate changes all the time, so you’d want o use the CURRENCY function to look it up.

CURRENCY(“AUD”,”USD”,0)

So if the price was in B2, and the fee was in C2, then D2 could be:
= B2 * CURRENCY(“AUD”,”USD”,0) + C2

That assumes the fee is listed in the currency you want already. Also, not sure if I have the direction of the conversion right, but you can easily reverse that.

The exchange rate PayPal uses is 0.6568. And then they charge a fee of .30

Thank you I will try out your formula.
