How Fees are Calculated

Shop Handmade Hawaii uses a simple fee schedule:

  • 3% transaction fee based on the subtotal of the order (with the exception of the Pro plan – there is no transaction fees with a Pro plan)
  • No fees towards shipping costs
  • No “relisting” or quantity fees

Please note that our transaction fee does not include processing fees that are applied by third-party vendors such as Stripe at 2.9% + 30¢. By arranging for local pickup, payment by check, or an alternative option(i.e. Venmo or cash) you can avoid these third-party processing fees.

Here is an example on how these fees are calculated, we have included the assumed processing fees for transparency:

Processing Fee listed in our summary example is imposed by Stripe. Additional fees to consider: currency fees.

A Note on Taxes

In a sale, the state GE tax will automatically be calculated and paid to you. It is your responsibility as a seller and a business owner to remit these taxes to the state along with all required tax filing. Shop Handmade Hawaii will not file taxes on your behalf and will not be held liable for any issues arising from any omissions or your failure to report your earnings, as per our terms of service.

Fees vs Seller Plans

Please keep in mind that fees are not the same as your seller plans. Seller plans are a monthly subscription to host your products and store on Shop Handmade Hawaii. They are paid at a flat rate of $5-$20 that are due regardless of the amount of sales you generate.

The cost of seller plans help us to cover the budget needed in keeping the website updated, managed and secure.
