What is your opinion ?
Of course....why : It's now an EBAY company....and they stink too...especially for a monopoly.
(see Ebay's stock price for confirmation)
Well, I think that Ebay should drop their final value fees for those sellers who are paid via Paypal. Ebay owns Paypal. SO Ebay is getting paid twice for the same transaction.
I hate waiting for the money to transfer from PP to your bank account. Brokerage accounts can do ACH in one day but pay pal takes 3-4.
Haven't sold anything via E-bay, but did purchase and got screwed by the seller. E-bay/Paypal at least made good on a part of my loss, so I can't complain too much. The process took over 2 months which seemed excessive, but got something out of it at least. I also have used Paypal for various other purchases and again the only time I had a problem was with some idiot who I canceled an order with. I called Paypal, spoke to an American, and got an answer right away to my question as well as a resolution to my problem with the situation.
I have never had one issue with PayPal in 6 years. I have done thousands of dollars in transactions, and transferred money to and from other accounts.
I live in Canada and just purchased a camera from someone else in Canada. I had to buy it in US$ which Ebay then converted to CDN$ to charge to my credit card. Ebay always charges a poor exchange rate, usually about 3% more than the going rate. What should have been about $290 Cdn, they charged me $300.58 Cdn. I'm sure they do the same thing with the seller charging him an extra 3% to pay him in Cdn $. So they make an easy 6% on that transaction on top of the sales commission.
What is a good alternative for paypal to get credit card payments as a seller ? (easy acceptance,good fees)
There is none. I always add to my S&H to cover Ebay and PayPal fees.
I for one love PayPal, they're very good.
