if you want to or not you're eating the fees paypal charges to accept money. If you charge a fee you're opening yourself up to all kinds of problems.

ex. Someone can complain to PayPal and get your account closed with the money trapped in it. If they're really persistent they could get a refund at the same time. Remember- they have your stuff when they do this.

I also notice the selling guidelines here are in violation even if you do follow it (including fees in the price). The only fees paypal allows is a handling fee which would be for the cost of your labor only.

if you charge a handling fee you must include your fee in all items you sell and all payment methods you accept.

4.6 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 goods or services, as long as the handling fee does not operate as a surcharge and is not higher than the handling fee you charge for non-PayPal transactions.
