    Hi guys,

    I want to use paypal as a way to accept payments online, but I'm being hit with a 21.5% fee for every transaction. Is there any good way to avoid such a large transaction fee with paypal or do I have to change how I accept my payments?

    Cheers

    21.5%? How can that be? Standard PayPal fees are 2.9% + $0.30.

    I am sure you are mistaken here, if not "Call Paypal ASAP"

    If you're paying 21% in fees you're probably selling something under $1?

    If you tell your customers to send money as services you dont pay fees! I know this for payments of 100-200-300$ i dont know if its the same for bigger prices!

    In addition to the regular fees you can get hit on exchange ratios. However 20% spread could be only on a very rare currencies.
