    Hi !


    I have a problem.

    I want to charge Paypal fees on my shuttle services when clients pay Paypal.

    The things is now double tax are charged to people

    I attached a printscreen so that you can see that for the private shuttle at 130$, double tax is charged for a total of 145 and something $$ when it should be 137,80$


    Can you please help me to fix this? 

    are the tax already charged in the paypal total amount at the end and I should not add this 6% to my jotform calculation  form?

    thank you,

    According to your form, everything is calculating fine and it is pretty much straightforward:

    Shuttle services is multiplied with How many people and then that is multiplied with 1.06 (6%).

    So there isn't any room for error.

    And that is how it is calculated in the form:

    So please check if there isn't any settings on your PayPal account that is adding some additional tax or other charge?

    Let us know if you have any further concerns.

    Thank you!
