How much does Paypal charge you for recieving funds? I know if you sell an item and the buyer uses a credit card to pay for it, you get charged a small fee and a percentage of the sale. But is there a charge for simply transfering funds from one user to the another without using a credit card? How do you transfer without a credit card?

Ok, next question, Matt

So can a seller accept Paypal, but refuse it if you try to use a Credit Card to pay it? Is there a difference on a seller's end from using Paypal with a Credit Card and using it with just normal funds?

As you can tell, I'm new to the online world of Paypal.

And they took $4 and change. Don't ask me why, they just do. Fees and so on I would guess. Hope this helps,

hehe, yeah, it's called being paid for providing a service :-P

As for the non-credit card payments.. I'd say don't do that.. it confuses and annoys people. It's a lot easier to pay the extra 15 cents or whatever and be able to accept any kind of payment.

As I understand it, some people actually charge the buyer extra to cover their PayPal fees. That is *so* uncool. People have got to accept that if they're using Ebay and a payment service to sell stuff, it's gonna cost some small fees and you just have to absorb that.
