Hey guys i need to know how to calculate this in excel:

(amount) + $15.00 + 4.5% of Amount

So if i sold something for $300 i need to add $15.00 + 4.5% of $300

Let's assume that your base amount (i.e. $300 in your example) is in cell A1. The formula would then be:

= A1 * 1.045 + 15 

You may want to change the cell formatting to currency to make the output look tidier.

When you say it "doesn't work" do you mean that it's returning an incorrect result?

The figures that are being returned by the tool that you've linked to appear to be different from the $15 + 4.5% formula that you've proposed. You need to check that your mathematical formula is correct before you turn it into an Excel formula.

Here, someone has already done it for you:

(Note: post is a little old and the fees have changed so you'll need to update it a little)

EDIT: Here's the edited/updated version:

=MIN(149,MAX(0.5,IF(A1<200,A1*0.075,IF(A1>1500,73.5+0.019*(A1-1500),15+0.045*(A1-200)))))
