It says outside the US is to be 4.4 percent on top of the currency fee.

I love the way they say 'changing' as opposed to 'increasing'. You can be sure if it was going own they would soon find the word 'reducing'.

Do they still charge the 20p aswel. Wen you sell on eBay if it goes for 99p you only see 68p or something. Thy charge more on lower cost items than e en ebay. In total

Yes, the current Paypal fee is 3.4% + 20p, though they do lower rates for businesses that sell a lot.

Why does it say 3.9% when it's as above 3.4%+20p

The standard transaction fee for sellers selling goods or services online to buyers outside the U.S. will rise from 3.9 per cent to 4.4 per cent, on top of the existing fixed fee based on the currency.

Yes, for US sellers selling outside the US.

Personally I find ebay and paypal to be very expensive ways of selling now. Not that long ago I could work on it being 10% of the selling price that I have to give away but quite often its more than that.

Problem is that they have the market cornered. Any alternatives out there have a much smaller user base.

Its not very clear in the article but I think all the fees quoted apply to sellers in the US, not the UK, thats the way I read it.

As an aside Hermes site will be down tomorrow morning.

The myHermes website will be unavailable on Tuesday 14th February from 06:00 to 08:00am.

The article relates to the PayPal User Agreement for US based accounts.

Here's the UK User Agreement which comes into effect 27th April:
https://www.paypal.com/uk/webapps/mpp/ua/useragreement-full?locale.x=en_GB

I'm not sure what the main changes are but there is no change to the 3.4% + 20p fee. There may be changes to cross border or other fees.

The currently effective UK User Agreement includes the non-discouragement clause.

As I read it, it was for PP customers OUTSIDE of the US.

This is just a reaction story to the announcement, I havent read the full release (I refuse to use PP); however, whatever the US side does, the European side will copy soon afterwards; just as our government copies whatever insane ideas the US government comes up with (usually a 10 year delay though).

PP is already one of the MOST expensive ePay systems, this will make it worse, especially alongside the Fleabay fees.

Oh, and they arent registered or regulated in the UK for financial services, as it is all done through a "Brass Plate" mailbox address in Luxembourg.
I found this out to my cost when they screwed me 15 years ago.

25 !!! They already cream enough. Time to ditch eBay either it's FV fees then the old PayPal fee and now this whopping 25%
#21
Thanks OP

I like the double posting about. Good way to increase your post count?

Yeah, upon reading this is not a UK thing. So not really worth the effort typing it.

You're probably correct though,the fees will go up here,same with Ebay something happens on the .com site and the UK site follows suit soon after.
