Free accounts not taking credit card payments don't get charged at all.

I have a business account and get charged for EACH transaction, not just the credit card ones.

One benefit to a business account though, is that once I have the funds, I don't force you to take a credit card payment. Paypal considers the funds in my account to be paypal cash and there are no fees for the recipient if I'm sending you money, if you have a free account.

Paypal can suck, but it's the only widely accepted thing, and until Google Checkout works with individuals and not businesses, I'll get one of those.
WoW, thanks for telling me, yo. I never knew--nor would I have evrt guesed. That's pretty mest-up though. So, Ebay and Paypal are having affairs. I'm just glade I don't sell things. No deductions for me.

Meh! Ebay is stinking up, they went coporate and are squeezing their consumers.
Motocross parts for under $25? what exactly are you selling? Clutches and hand brakes?

I'm sure if you wanted to you could as long as both parties would agree and you can sign up to use google checkout as a reciever.

I don't believe there is anything on ebay that flat out prevents you from using another option to handle the payment just it isn't advertised on there.

You can pay by credit card, but you need to have a business to be set up to do that.

Paypal is the only way of staying within Ebay's ToS and paying another member that doesn't own a shop.

So what you are saying is, you don't want to pay for the "rented space" of advertising your goods? Well... if that were the case, then you might want to consider Craigslist instead of eBay. eBay gets a much wider global audience seeing your product for sale while Craigslist is more local. eBay wouldn't be in business if all of that were free (or at least they wouldn't make it as easy for someone to find your wares as it is now... ever try to search for something for sale on Craigslist? Man it's a crapshoot out there. But hey, it's worth what it costs.


Also, have you checked the "bank merchant rate" for obtaining a credit card swipe machine? You can spend thousands on one of those units.

Pretty much Visa, Mastercard, etc will charge you a fee just to have the machine plus a transaction fee for each charge you post. What you gain is the ease of payment from your customer and the assurance from Visa/MC/etc that the funds will be sent to you (i.e. the CC deals with the bad debt risk). All you have to worry about is that you properly provide your services and/or goods to the customer.

With Paypal, you don't have to have a merchant account. They do that for you. Yes you pay the transaction fees, but you'd have to do this anyway if you accepted credit cards. More or less, over the internet, how many people are going to send you CASH? Not too many I'd think (at least if they were smart they wouldn't... I sure as hell wouldn't send cash.)

So you see, you are going to have to pay one way or another. Would you rather they just increase the overall "buying fee" to cover both services? If so, then they could possibly do that, but honestly, I don't see them lowering their fees that much just because the brought in Paypal to the eBay mix.

Of course, as others have said, many sellers pass on the "fees" with their crazy high "shipping and handling" charges... so in that, it kinda evens out. (Yeah... like it really costs $15 to $25 to ship a 5 lb object using ground services across the country. Those folks are in actuality covering their "eBay fees" right there. )

Some Yamaha and Suzuki plastics, as well as some sled parts. I bought a bunch from a shop going out of business, so I sell these when the mood strikes. These parts are 35 new and i don't use a reserve. Everything now is profit as I already made back the initial investment. Just whinning about a 12% COB.
