PayPal Fees

Recommended Posts

If you sell something on a forum like TGO and the buyer pays via paypal (debit card) is it understood that they pay the 2.9% +.30 buyer fee?

To my knowledge we don’t really have an official policy. Typically up to buyer and seller in negotiations.

Up to you. We only allow you the luxury o f posting it here. Think of it as a public service for benefactors.

Speaking of which, we all depend on this website for a variety of information. If you're not a benefactor you should be. Chip in and keep things running here. Kudos to David and those who keep us up and running.

Show your appreciation by spending a few bucks.

My transactions on  paypal have been free.  The seller is considered a friend or family to me, at least when talking about non commercial enterprises...

When I buy I pay the fee.

I always assumed that payment method, BOS requirements, etc., was made clear either in the ad or before a meet.

If it applies to a firearms sale, you might also want to consider that PayPal doesn’t allow members to buy or sell Firearms, Firearms parts, or ammunition. Although it’s done all the time, if you get hosed; you may not have any recourse.

PayPal has a list of things you may not use their service to pay for.  TGO's expectation is that our members follow their rules and use another means of payment for anything that falls into those categories.  Cash, cashier's check, money order, etc.

When you buy a Benefactor membership, you're paying for a media service (TGO) similar to paying for a magazine subscription.  You aren't buying the right to buy/sell anything on TGO.  We merely make those areas available to you as a Thank You for helping us provide this forum to the public.

Access to the Trading Post forums are just one of the perks Benefactors get.  It's not the only perk.  This is why anyone who abuses the Trading Post can have their privileges to that area yanked without expecting a refund, since a member didn't "buy" that access.  It's a gift that we generally give in thanks, but we reserve the right to retract it if it's abused.  The same as we reserve the right to gift it on occasion to people who don't support TGO's mission financially.
