We gripe about the chunk they take out for the convenience of safe, instant payment…but PayPal is almost a de-facto standard for quick online payment from VO clients.
PayPal is now charging the same for all accounts. The formula is 2.9% + .30USD. So sending or receiving $100 is gonna cost the sender or the receiver $3.20.
Make it easy. Visit THIS site for an unbelievably convenient and quick calculation of ANY PayPal transaction amount.
Also, THIS is PayPal’s ‘help’ page explaining their fee structure.
I usually ask the client to pay that handling fee, and almost without exception or complaint, I get compliance.
