International payment (credit card): 4.99 USD + 3.4% + Fixed Fee Local payment (credit card): 3.4% + Fixed Fee. International payment (PayPal balance): 4.99 USD Local payment (PayPal balance): free Details can be found here https://www.paypal.com/id/webapps/mpp/ua/upcoming-policies-full. This is going to increase transaction cost. I wonder if there are better ways to transact.
