**On this page you can find a simple explanation how the Steam Marketplace fees work and how to calculate them.**

## How to calculate the Steam Market Fees?

**To calculate the Steam market fees, count the Steam fee of 5%, the specific game fee of about 10%, and the Steam cut of 0.01 cent together and subtract if from the full price. Subtracting these 3 values will give you the exact price. To calculate percentages correctly, don’t just subtract the percentages, divide the percentages as a number. Example: For a 15% fee, divide the price by 1.15 minus the Steam cut: Price/Fee – 0.01 = Exact Price.**

This is the exact answer in short, for more details read my explanation below. 🙂

## How is the Steam Tax calculated?

The Steam tax is caluclated with a standart percentage calculation, based on three values:

- A Steam fee of 5%.
- A specific game fee (For CS:GO or Dota 2 this is 10%).
- A Steam cut, that they take for their own. This is 0.01 cent.

On the Steam market, you can buy and sell a lot of different items and skins, and it’s all about the trending price. By adding the 3 values together, we would get a percentage of 15% and 0.01 cent extra.

If you now had a price of 100$ and remove 15%, you would think you would get $85, but that is not the case.

The correct math for the Steam Tax calculation is:

`Price/Percentage - 0.01 = Exact Price`

In the example with $100 and 15% that would be:

`$100/1.15 = $86.97 - 0.01 = $86.96`

**Have fun trading Steam items, you now know how to calculate Steam fees and the tax correctly**.

For everyone who wants to have the precise fee. This formula is just an estimation and sometimes you will miss the price by up to 2 cents.
