The amounts are calculated based on the US PayPal fees of 2.9% + $0.30 per invoice.
The cost of each payment received through PayPal is 2.9% plus US$0.30 for sales within the US. If working with an international client, you will pay a PayPal fee of 4.4% plus a fixed fee based on the country.
More information is available on PayPal's website.
The short answer is yes. PayPal fees are different from country to country. The fees are also different between invoicing a client living in your own country and an international client.
If living outside the USA, please check your country's PayPal website to find more information about your PayPal invoicing fees.
There is no fee to withdraw your PayPal account balance to your registered US bank account. However, if requesting a check, you will be charged a $5 flat fee.
From using a different payment processor such as Stripe or getting paid by Bitcoin, you can find an alternative to getting paid through PayPal.
