I get so annoyed when people are asking for me to pay the Paypal fees or to gift them the money. I mean, honestly, that's the cost of doing business. If you don't like it, then don't deal in it. It's against Paypal's TOS to actually do it anyways. Do don't even ask. 
Seriously, is it so hard to find a paypal fee calculator online? Gr.

I always tell people to do that. It's annoying to sell something for a set price, pay the shipping, then eat the fees. Half the time the fuckers lowball you anyways and you end up coming down on your price even more.

 

Least you can do is pay the fees or make sure it's exactly the amount they're asking for.

For every $100 they receive when selling, they lose like $3 in fees. The worst they can do is suck it up.

I dont really see the difference, I'm either going to include fees in my price, or ask that the buyer pays them. From my experience things sell faster when I post a price as something like "$600 + shipping and fees" instead of just setting the price to roughly $640 shipped and PP'd

PP fees are pretty much the standard fee of doing anything electronically. Places don't charge you a fee when you pay with a Credit Card, do they? Most Credit Card transactions are hit with a 3-4% fee.

I would love to see that happen at a store and the reaction from people. You walk up to purchase something, swipe your card, and all of a sudden they tell you, "oh you also have to pay an extra 3% because we were too lazy to figure out prices that included covering fees."

Except taxes are mandated by law, while charging the buyer PP fees is specifically against PP terms of service.

 

4.6 No Surcharges. You agree that you will not impose a surcharge or any other fee for accepting PayPal as a payment method. You may charge a handling fee in connection with the sale of goods or services as long as the handling fee does not operate as a surcharge and is not higher than the handling fee you charge for non-PayPal transactions.

The best moments happen when you calculate the fee wrong and the seller gets all but roughly $1-3 from a $500 transaction and flips out on you.
