Probably the 3.6% odd that paypal snaffle has something to do with it, that would knock a large hole in the tiny percentages Rufe is working to.

You can now elect for the payment sender to pay the fees rather than the recipient.

I didnt know this, and may an option to consider as I didnt realise the fees were as high as 3.6%, which would mean we would actually be losing on the majority of our sales, so if that was the case then we simply couldn't do it.

I have asked the question to our management here in the past and simply got the reply of "lets not bother with that it will only complicate things," where my argument is that paypal would probably make things easier. I hadn't considered the high charges though, but if a buyer was willing to pay the fees then i cant see why we couldn't do it.

Will look into this again then i think

Simon

Coo, didn't know that, that's v. useful info.

Regarding the percentage, I sold an article earlier this week; item, 45, p&p, 4, total 49, fees charged on whole amount, 1.87. By my rough estimation that's 3.8%; mind you, they prolly charge traders less than that, else who in their right mind would deal under those terms?

Regards, Nick.
