You guys are correct, Fleabay and Paypal are entitled to charge whatever they want. I think their fee's are to high, so I don't like to use them for anything except buying stuff. I am in the minority I realize that, but as you both mentioned don't use their "service" and I don't as much as possible. Its the same old story, they start a service, and at first it is good and worth the fee's but after a number of years, they increase the cost of utilizing their service. Well for me it has become to costly "for me" I believe in a fair profit for time and labor, but when you are the only business on the block and you take advantage of that, I believe that is wrong.
I work on radios for fun as a hobby because I am very good at it. I like repairing that prized piece of gear someone just loves and wants to work. I don't spend my time and expertise to do free work, but I am very reasonable for whatever I work on. I have my primary work I do for my income and that is good for me.
Having been in the corporate world doing very technical and very specialized work, most of which I was the only person doing the work, and seeing how much the organizations I worked for charged for "their services" and how much they paid me to perform the tasks to enable the company to have the "service" in the first place, I really got a bad taste in my mouth about the whole thing.
The only place I worked that I was happy to provided my services for low compensation for my tasks was the military, not so good pay, allot of responsibility, accountability, and very structured life. I was happy to do it, and there are times I have thought I should have stayed in the military after having to deal with the private corporate sector. I believe in making a fair profit from my work, but I don't believe its all about me and screw everyone else in the process. I hope you guys get what I am saying.
Anyway, have a wonderful and blessed thanksgiving. Here in America, we really do have allot to be thankful for and are indebted to this country, the best country on earth.

I have had numerous ppl gift me the money and they have all received what was paid for. Unfortunately there are people out there who are scum bags and will rip anyone and everyone off that they can. If they don’t have a good trader rating I myself would not do it .

I don't see a problem with ebay/paypal charging whatever they want, it's a free country. Just because we all would rather get charged less for a service doesn't mean they're doing something evil and it doesn't mean we should bitch about it or scheme ways to take advantage of their services and not pay them. You don't need ebay/paypal to live and/or do business. It's a convenience service. If you don't like it, don't use it.

I think it is a tad bit humorous that people despise PayPal for charging 3% and yet don't realize they are paying the extra 3% every day on every item they purchase at any store or the internet, it is just built into the price already by the Retailer.....lol.

Gas stations used to have a "cash price" but not anymore (at least around me).

Has anyone used Escrow.com? It seems like a good way to ensure that the buyer gets his product and the seller gets his money.

There is 1 price and 1 price only. If the seller accepts paypal, they eat the fees, period.
that's one thing i always wondered about - how can those that own/operate a site with a high volume of p2p sales openly allow their members to violate the TOS of paypal? it expressly states you cannot charge an additional fee to cover the costs of using the service yet i see posts on all sorts of forums for "$X + 3.X% (it varies from .3 to .5) for paypal fees".

if the seller sets the terms (paypal only) then they should eat whatever fees they are charged for using the payment service they chose. alternatively they can be smart about it and add the fee into their advertised price (i.e. charge $105 for a $100 item). everyone follows their own morals/beliefs and i choose not to do business with anyone who requires the buyer cover the fee or a gift payment is used. if you are that hard up for money then you should be selling whatever you have as fast as you possibly can for whatever you can get.
