How to add the PayPal fee to your total

In a scenario where a buyer wants to pay you using PayPal so that you get the exact amount (buyer pays the PayPal fee), the asking price has to be changed – but by how much? Here’s the formula to get $120 (International, Domestic):

PayPal fees:
Intl (3.9% + $0.30)
ex. to net $120.00:

$120.30 / .961 = $125.18

Domestic (2.9% + $0.30)
$120.30 / .971 = $123.89
