Hey there everyone. I want to start a petition going for charging people for paypal fees. This has really been bothering me since i first saw people doing it. I personally try to stay away from these sellers, because it's ridiculous.
I have sold PLENTY of stuff here, on ebay, and on other forums. I HAVE never, and WILL never charge a buyer paypal fees. I take paypal because it is a convenience, and I know it's not a free service. besides that, the fee is always so small, why even worry about the 2 or 3% they take out. I think we need to ban charging paypal fees. Think about the following points:
1. if you are going to sell something at a price, ask for a little more to take care of the paypal fees if you really NEED that extra $1.25.
2. why should buyers have to give the seller even more than what the seller is asking for?
3. if you are accepting paypal, then you know you are paying for the service...don't make the buyer pay for the expense that is charged to the SELLER!!!
4. if you don't want to pay paypal fees DON'T USE PAYPAL...IT'S NOT FREE!! make your buyers pay in check or money order
Think about these things before you decide to accept paypal. If you don't want to pay the fees, then don't bother accepting it. Is there anyone out there who's with me on this?
