Outrageous paypal and ebay fees
I wrote paypirates to ask them why they felt it right to charge me a service charge to receive money that I will never get.
How could they do this?
Because the funds in question that PP is charging me 3% on were taken as part of the 11% in fees eBay took from the sale!
-An item sells for $100: I get $88.00.
-Paypirates charges me 3% of $100.00. -meaning 3% of $12.00 I’ll never receive.
(Not to mention ebay pocketing 9% of the shipping charges the buyer paid!!)
Today, I transferred $635.00 from Payirates to a Canadian account. I found, over 4 sites, telling me I should have an average deposit, in CDN, of $446.00.
Paypirates is giving me:
That’s a THEFT of $16.00- in addition to the 11% eBay/PP took on the sale and the 3% they took for receiving the funds, (Including $2.26 in fees to ‘receive funds’ that eBay took @ the source).
So on $721.00 USD in sales?
eSaytan and Paypirates took: NINETY ONE dollars, or TWELVE POINT SIX PERCENT in “fees”.
And I won’t even start on the, “5 to 7 business days”, it’s going to take the bastards to transfer what’s left of my $$ so they can earn a few points having it sit in an interest bearing account.
I realize the system in America is utterly bought/paid for/and ruined, (I was part of a successful class action suit in the prior decade -which I learned of through paypalsucks but a crooked Ca. court allowed them to claw back nearly $45 in “administration costs” for every $50 cheque that was snail mailed out), but surely those of us outside the US can do something???
These ba$tard$ need to go down.
