How Do I Calculate My Fees & Sales for the Year?

How to Review Your Fees on Hip for the Year

Fees on Hip can be reviewed at any time from your Account History page by navigating to the Members Area > My Account > Account History page, or by clicking the appropriate link below:

HipStamp Account History
HipComic Account History
HipPostcard Account History

At the top of the page, you can filter your Account History to show you the past year or any specific date range selected.

At the top of the page, you will also see three total amounts, which represent the following:

  • TOTAL DEBITS - The total fees you incurred during this period.
  • TOTAL CREDITS - The total credits you were issued during this period.
  • TOTAL PAYMENTS - The total amount you paid to us during this period (via your credit card or PayPal)

Keep in mind that when you sell items at auction or offer to the same buyer, we'll automatically combine invoices (up to a specific period of days). When this happens we'll issue you a credit for the final value fees on the original order, and create a new one, with updated final value fees. As a result, if you sell a large amount at auction or offer, you may see a higher amount of total debits than you're expecting, but please note that to calculate your actual total fees incurred, you will need to subtract the total credits from that amount.

How to Review Your Sales on Hip for the Year

You can download a list of your sales at any time, for any specific date range, including the past year, from the Reports page by navigating to Members Area > Selling > Seller Tools > Reports page, or by clicking the links below:

HipStamp Reports
HipComic Reports
HipPostcard Reports

For "Report Type" select "CSV - Sales Summary".

Please note that this report will be a CSV spreadsheet file, that will include a list of all items sold, with one item per row. Within any spreadsheet program, such as Microsoft Excel or LibreOffce Calc, you can sum the "Sale Price" column for a total of all items sold by price for the specified period.

However, please keep in mind that it would not be possible to directly sum "Order Shipping And Handling" or "Order Total" as this would include duplicated data for any orders in which there was more than one item.

With the above in mind, and as Hip is not involved in the collection of payments, if you are looking for information related to your sales for tax purposes, you should generally obtain this information from PayPal.

It is always recommended to work with a tax professional for accuracy on tax reporting.
