    How does this add up?

    I thought I was fairly good at maths, having an A-Level, but this really doesn't make sense. Anyone make this add up?

    Inital agreed sale amount was 150.

    "Sales through our website are subject to a 15% commission. ****’s commission for this sale is 45 GBP, the VAT (20%) amounts to 9 GBP and you have earned 96 GBP."

    Let me see if i get it:
    1) you sold something on a website.
    2) the website charges you in a % (15) of the product price
    3) the website charges vat (20) on top of it

    Write so:

    If the product is 150:
    150 x 15% = 22,5 then 22,5 X 20% = 4,5
    150 - 22,5 - 4,5 = 123 this should be the value right?

    But they did:
    150 - (300 x 15% X 20%)

    so
    300 x 15% x 20%

    300 x 15% = 45 then 45 x 20% = 9

    so
    150 - 45 - 9 = 96

    They just started from 300 instead of 150.... is that it?

    Easy.....

    150 - 96 = 54

    54 - 9 = 45



    And if it still doesn't work for you:

    Tiago thanks for your reply. That actually answered it for me. I originally had the listing for 300 but then accepted an offer for 150. So the site charged me fees based on the original listing price. Makes sense now and I will be having words.
