Go to the PayPal home page, and on the left side there is a link that says Is Pay Pal free to use. When that opens, click on the Fee Schedule and that should answer your questions.

SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO--YOU SELL $100 ITEM-PAY $3'00
SELL$ 10,000 ITEM PAY $300.00
IF SOMEONE DOESN'T COMPLAIN AND LIE ABOUT YOUR ITEM THEN YOU GIVE ALL MONEY BACK AND NEVER SEE ITEM AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!\

IS THAT HOW IT WORKS 8) 8) 8) 8) 8)

I just sold an item and took a paypal payment on it. The guy that bought the stuff used a credit card through paypal. Paypal deducted about 3% of the payment for what I guess was a processing fee. So they charged me nearly 6 bucks for a $190.00 payment. I didn't realize they would do this so I stuck to the deal but next time I will warn the buyer he has to add the processing fee if he wants to make a payment with a credit card. The $6.00 wasn't that big of a deal but if it was a more expensive item I would've hated it.

myself i love pay-pal..i use it as much as buyer or seller will agree to..one thing is you have a buyer protection.if you pay for a item and shipping doesn't send to you within 10 days then you file a complaint with pay-pal.the seller then has 10 days to make it right with you..if he doesn't reponse back or make it right then pay-pal gives your money back and they go after the seller to get there money back..as a seller then as soon as person pays me with pay-pal i then transfer those fubds from pay-pal to my bank..this protects me from buyer changing his mind after paying me and cancer his payment..can't do that if it isn't in pay-pal account[that covers the scamers doing this]..i rather pay the $6.00 fee and be covered myself..another thing i find a + with pay-pal is some buyers may not have cash at time you are selling something but they have the all mighty credit card[pay later plain]so if you accept pay-pal then you still make the sell by accepting there credit card..
just my reasons i like using pay-pal as sending money and recieving money..and it is faster.if buying a part don't have to wait a week or 2 for pony express to get your moneyorder to seller or buyer before the part you need is sent..
