    I have been selling some items on ebay, but the fee amount hasn't been consistent (despite the items being identical and the exact same price), so what the fu*k gives? Paypal decided to charge me £8 on one transaction, then £12 on another (for the same amount of money and the same item). WTF??

    I think it depends on where the money comes from. If the buyer is from the UK, fees are lower. If the buyer is outside of the UK, there is a cross border transaction fee (or something like this, can't remember the exact name:)) too.

    Yes that was my first thought, but both buyers are from UK.

    Hm, strange. Maybe one of them paid with a credit card and the other one with his PayPal balance?

    You may want to edit your title of your thread and removed the "PayFag" part. While I can understand your frustration, this may be offensive to some of the members here and I'm sure you can find another way to express yourself rather then posting possibly offensive terminology.

    As far as the fees go that you had to pay, you may find more help/assistance from getting in touch with PayPal rather then ranting on a forum where no one would really be able to help you understand why your fee amount(s) are different.

    If you could tell me how I could go about editing the thread title, I will. It certainly was not my intent, and I apologize if I did indirectly offend anyone. I'll be sure to be more considerate in the future.

    As to wondering why I posted here instead of contacting Paypal, I figured there'd be a chance of someone else who would have had a similar experience, or certain knowledge in this field - This is an eBay subforum after all.
    I also want to be as under the radar as possible where Paypal and eBay are concerned, so I prefer not to contact them about such matters. Thanks..
