It is interesting that some people want a company to perform services like credit card processing and money transfers for free. Interesting that a seller of an item requests for the buyer to lie on the Paypal form, saying that they are not buying goods but are instead sending a gift. Trading off integrity to save an 89 cent fee? Sad.
Couldn't agree more Jim, and I applaud your decision to add the "no gift" to the for sale forum. Paypal is performing a service and should be paid, just like Visa. I just wish someone would come along and do it for 1% instead of 2 or 3
Other payment options still exist, but you pay for the speed, convenience and security of PayPal or visa. Sellers can specify up front what payments they accept, and should absorb costs and price items accordingly. Thanks for making it right in my book Jim.
