    • A 6.5% per transaction fee that includes payment processing fee.
    • A 2.5% currency conversion fee that is paid by your customer. The currency conversion fee is automatically added to the product price and can be adjusted in your Shopify admin.

    Markets Pro doesn't have a monthly fee and you don't need to sign any contracts. You can stop using Markets Pro at any time.

    Flow of funds

    Markets Pro features are powered by Global-e. After an international Markets Pro order is placed in your store, Global-e processes the transaction and holds the money in their account.

    When Global-e goes across the border, they act as your merchant of record. Global-e holds the funds to remit the costs to proper authorities that are involved in the cross-border commerce transaction.

    After Global-e remits all the costs, such as taxes and duties, you receive a payout of the remaining money.

    Getting paid

    You receive a payout from Markets Pro with all transaction data over the previous time period on the 1st and 16th day of the month. The transaction data contains a full breakdown of all costs and fees involved for every order. The breakdown of fees includes taxes, duties, remitted VAT, shipping costs, and the Markets Pro processing fee. You can find your payout information in your Shopify admin by going to Finances > Payouts.

    Calculating Markets Pro payouts

    You can use the following calculation to calculate Markets Pro payouts:

    Total order cost(remitted tax/VAT + remitted duty + remitted shipping cost + processing fee + currency conversion fee) = Amount paid

    For example, when an order is placed for a shirt for a total cost of 150 EUR, the total breakdown of an order is the following:

    • a shirt costs 120 EUR (paid by customer)
    • duties cost 5 EUR
    • taxes/VAT cost 10 EUR
    • international shipping costs 15 EUR
    • Markets Pro processing fee is 5.4 EUR

    In this example, your customer pays 150 EUR to Global-e. Global-e remits the following costs:

    • the cost of 10 EUR tax/VAT to the government
    • the cost of 5 EUR duties to customs agencies
    • the shipping cost of 15 EUR to DHL

    The transaction fee of 5.4 EUR (6.5%) is paid as the Markets Pro processing fee.

    After all these costs are taken out, you receive 114.6 EUR.

    With Markets Pro you can use more local payments methods for markets worldwide. For example, if you're selling products to customers in Denmark, then those customers can pay for products with Klarna using DKK currency.
