    Just a warning to anyone doing transaction with Paypal.

    I sold some stuff and received payment this week. As I was getting the shipping info from the transactions so I can mail out the packages, I was noticing the fees seemed kinda high. I double checked the page that tells what your fees are for transactions. With the business/premier membership, it's 2.9% plus 30¢. Doing the math, I was charged 3.9% plus 30¢. 1% may not seem like a big deal, but it does add up and it is shady of them to charge more than they say they will.

    You guys may want to check your charges. I'm curious if anyone else has been getting overcharged or if it's just me.

    They got me at least twice, too. Thanks for pointing that out.

    What would be the best course of action for disputing this?

    I've sent them an email about it and asked for my 1% refund on past transaction or else I'm going to the BBB. If others have been taken, and will post in this thread, a link to it will be used as evidence of a more widespread problem.

    I'll email them about it, too. I think it's only 80 cents, but I think I've given them enough in fees that they shouldn't be taking anything extra from me.
