I'm sure we have all noticed that more and more sellers on eBay, Nikonians, our Cafe, and other places are asking for a 1.5-3% premium to cover their Paypal fees when accepting payment via Paypal.

Well, I don't like it!

Now, this is not intended to point fingers at anyone in particular but at the trend generally. I buy many hundreds of items from eBay and other places every year as an antique photographica collector. I also sell and trade as part of the hobby. Paypal is so simple to use it is my favored way to pay and receive funds from my transactions.

I do not and will not ever charge a buyer for using Paypal as I think it is just part of the cost of doing business. So, in that light, I have started to bypass items that I would normally buy if the seller wants that additional fee.

In short, I don't charge a fee and I won't pay a fee!

I feel so much better.
