Upload & Sell: Off
I am under the impression that PayPal's policy refers to sales on eBay, not privately. As far as asking for paypal fees in addition to the item cost, I do it often, especially on high dollar items and it has not been an issue. Some buyers do send me a check or money order instead to save the 3%, I assume my talking to them and my reputation here on FM reassures them. It is simply a matter of buyer's choice. Buy from whom you want under the terms you want. Why is that so hard?
The only point I am really trying to make is that the widespread use of PayPal Gift and other non-secure methods makes it easier for a scammer to scam on the Buy&Sell boards here. Is that hard to understand?
It doesn't impact me, because I ignore those ads, but it seems like it might be a decent thing to adopt a policy that helps establish a somewhat safer experience for everyone. Or maybe chiseling PayPal out of their 3% is the most important thing to enough people that it doesn't really matter?
