Journal History

Hello! My friend Ryusenka, recently told me that it's against Paypal's TOS to charge a customer the Paypal fees. If you take commissions be careful about asking the customer to cover PayPal fees! You could lose access or have your account suspended! Ouch!

The TOS specifically states:
"4.6 No Surcharges. You agree that you will not impose a surcharge or any other fee for accepting PayPal as a payment method. You may charge a handling fee in connection with the sale of goods or services as long as the handling fee does not operate as a surcharge and is not higher than the handling fee you charge for non-PayPal transactions."

You can avoid that by including the cost of the fee into the overall price.

Stay safe everyone!

Edit: Handling fee...explanation? Some people prefer keeping the PayPal fee separate from the price of commissions (for their own reasons), so charging a handling fee for commissions is a good workaround. You just have to make sure it's not obviously a PayPal fee that you're making the customers pay for. For example, charging a +5% handling fee on all commissions involving payment processors - credit, PayPal, Stripe.

Also, you should never ask payment to be sent as a gift because that's not very safe. LOL.

Nice to see you again too and thank you for the consistent support. It makes me happy to see the same faces and encourages me to make more new things (haha so hopefully don't see the same things over and over).
