I have never really used Excel but im trying to work out a simple formula. I
am trying to make the cell (A2) enter the appropriate listing fees from ebay
depending on what is entered as the opening value price in another cell
(A1). Can anyone give me the formula cos my brains hurting.

0.01 - 0.99 fee =0.15
1.00 - 4.99 0.20
5.00 - 14.99 0.35
15.00 - 29.99 0.75
30.00 - 99.99 1.50
100.00 and up 2.00

in A2 enter:
=if(a1<1;.15;if(a1<5;.2;if(a1<15;.35;if(a1<30;.75;if(a1<100;1.5;2)))))

Change the ";" to "," I am using Kspread in Linux right now

You can also use tables and a lookup function which would be easier to
maintain.

Aren't there also percentages to calc for ebay fees?
