Re: PayPal Fee Upcharging is ILLEGAL!!

Just this week, I contacted Paypal about this issue. I've been a Paypal user since they began and as a seller have always paid the fees as the agreement calls for. But, Paypal now says that the part of the agreement regarding fees applies only to transactions on eBay. . Furthermore, they say that if...

Paypal fees

For the others who are not familiar with the agreement, here are the fine points: From the Paypal user agreement: "4.5 No Surcharges. You agree that you will not impose a surcharge or any other fee for accepting PayPal as a payment method. You may charge a handling fee in connection with the sale of...

Paypal fees

Of course, I'm free to make any personal assumptions I deem appropriate in my personal transactions. I suspect just about all users of Paypal have never read through the mice-type of what they agreed to when they signed up for Paypal. I had a rather serious problem with eBay and Paypal a few years b...

Paypal fees

Here's the way I look requests for the buyer to pay the fees: The agreement that each Paypal user agrees to when signing up for the service clearly specifies that a seller may NOT charge fees to the buyers for using Paypal. If a person is able and willing to ignore what he's agreed to to maximize hi...

Paypal fees

In the past few months, I've noted that many of the ads saying the seller will take Paypal require the buyer to pay a fee of between 3 and 4%. I've used Paypal since their beginning, and while I don't agree with many of their policies, the fact is I've been able to sell quite a few pieces of gear to...

Bubble wrap at a reasonable price

I pack and ship several large pieces of ham gear every year and like to use plenty of the large bubble bubble-wrap to protect the gear. The wrap I normally use is 12" wide and if you buy it at one of the office supply stores, you pay in the range of $13-20 for a very small roll -maybe 25 feet. But, ...

UPS claims

A friend of mine runs an electronics related business and ships a lot of expensive electronic test gear via UPS. Every now and then there's damage and sometimes UPS refuses to pay on the claim or drags their feet. In those cases, the friend files suit in Small Claims Court for the amount of the repa...
