Again, I'd recommend that one of the mods make the surcharge rule more clear in the rules. No amendments have been made since my other post, and predictably, many have unknowingly violated the rules.

Honestly, who reads the fine print on the PayPal terms of use? This sentence is too ambiguous:
Quote:
7. Please do not list any payment terms that are against the terms of service for any other website, or do anything that would make us have to phone our lawyer (because we will take down the listing, and you may be banned or fined.) For example, please do not ask for “personal payments,” from Paypal.

However, members should also know that it is within the PayPal terms of service to charge 4% for handling for all forms of payment. You just can't be charging the rate for PayPal only.

Honestly, it's not our responsibility to explain the ToS of Paypal to our users. When you use B&S, or Paypal, you have accepted the ToS, and are responsible for your actions on the site. Here is a good general guideline - you should not treat Paypal differently than another method of payment. Geez, guys, really? I'm not going to do any more handholding.

You may, but unless you are going to say "100% of the proceeds of all my sales are going to charity", you are unlikely to find a sympathetic ear.

True, but I think it would be pragmatic to explicitly mention the 4% surcharge rule.

Everyone seems to get the personal payment rule. It's mentioned explictly in your sticky.

The bulk of the offenders seem to have violated the surcharge rule. Inevitably, new members will join and they won't have time to read this thread.

Just my 2 cents.

I understand this. However, for example, you write: "I accept payment through Paypal; please add a 4% handling fee", without mentioning any other form of payment, they would take this as a contravention of their ToS. They are quite strict about this, and if you try to use the argument you just proposed, you'd probably not even get an answer. People at Paypal didn't make tons and tons of money by being that gullible.

Bottom line - just don't try funny wording to get that extra 4% or whatever, it's really not worth it, and we are not going to get ourselves into trouble because you think that you are clever.
