I am not sure if this subject has been posted or not and I apologize if it has, but I was wondering how the community felt on paypal fees. Should they be paid by the commissioner or the artist? As of late I have been taking a fair amount of commissions. While this makes me happy I've been getting nicked and dimed left and right and it's starting to add up. I have been letting it slide in the name of not looking like a jerk plus I read it's against paypal's service to have a surcharge. I am a little confused on fees as well. When I send money there isn't a fee to pay(I know this is because I normally pay from an existing paypal balance which is free) or if I am forced to use my debit card I always select the personal tab and payment owned. Using that it only charged me an extra five cents, while the person I was sending money to got the full amount.
Does using the personal tab make a big difference?
I myself personally don't mind paying a fee, because I view the artist like I would any store. Can't go into a store expecting to get something tho you're only a dollar short , the same should be applied them or at least that's how I view it. However I can't expect everyone to have my mind fame or thought process.
