Putting the rules aside for a minute, I think a seller should price his items to suit his needs...including PayPal fees. If you settle upon a price and the seller asks that you send it as a gift, I would tell him that he should have thought of that before accepting the price. And I don't care what a person's iTrader feedback looks like, or if he's a friend...$h1t happens. Even a good seller could send something out thinking it works perfectly, or thinks that it's in better shape than the buyer thinks it should be. Once the buyer gets it and finds out it's not what he expected, he's left holding the bag.Do not ask that a buyer sends paypal payment as a gift. This is a against the Paypal TOS and we will not tolerate this type of abuse.
Totally agree!!I only send PP gift to legitimate friends.
I don't demand that someone pay me in that fashion. However, I do pass along that savings to buyers by offering them the option if they want to go that route and save a few bucks.
yeah, this fucks me badly. i do a lot of my business with paypal, and going from a 25 cent fee to instant transfer to 1% is insane. Maybe when your transferring 100 bucks, but no business transfers 100 bucks at a time.Paypal is not my favorite way to make or get payments for anything anymore. Im fact they now this month have changed their fee to do bank transfers. They just nicked me for 10.00 USD for a payment. I thought the ATM fee's were high for some transactions, but paypal has blown all that away. I choose to boycott paypal total ripoff!
I don't get what you are transferring to incur that fee?yeah, this fucks me badly. i do a lot of my business with paypal, and going from a 25 cent fee to instant transfer to 1% is insane. Maybe when your transferring 100 bucks, but no business transfers 100 bucks at a time.
Not sticking up for them but they started doing this when people decided to try and take advantage and sell a $1000 item for $1 with $999 shipping. If people didn't try and screw them over, they wouldn't have changed.Oh and fleabay also charges a fee for the shipping as well, when they do nothing in that respect.
Right, it's called running a business. eBay and PayPal are not here to hold our hands. They are here to make money. If you don't like their tactics, don't use either. I choose to play their game, because it's just too damn convienient. I remember the days of selling shit on eBay, and waiting a week or more for the damn money order to come in the mail.I just don't like paypal period. they do charge 2.9% on business transactions, ok but as I said they use to charge .25 cents to do the bank transfer now they charge 1% up to 10.00 USD do the math.
So between fleabay and their final value fee, paypal with their 2.8% fee, and now the 1% bank transfer fee. Oh and fleabay also charges a fee for the shipping as well, when they do nothing in that respect.
I don't like the terms of doing business with either of the organizations. Just another leech on doing any business with fleabay and paypal.
