Users charging to use Paypal - Against ToS

Posted By Kurt Knudsen

I've noticed a lot of classifides and auctions state that if you wish to pay with Paypal, then add 3%. I can only imagine the only reason for this is because Paypal charges you to use their services. Doing this is against Paypal's ToS and could get both parties in trouble. I can't say I'm a fan of Paypal by any means but it'd be a shame to see people lose their accounts/money because they broke the ToS. I also don't think it's fair for sellers to charge a buyer 3% extra to use Paypal, especially with the prices of some items. I'm not saying that I'm going to email Paypal and complain about anyone, but I'd prefer it if people wouldn't charge 3% to use Paypal, since it is more secure than sending a Money Order.

Thanks.
