i have noticed that some sites that i do when i get paid paypal takes all or half of it. then there are sites that they dont take any from. you never know which ones paypal will take more then there share from. it drives me nuts to spend all that time on a site get paid and then paypal take all of it. have you had this happen.

it depends on the type of account that you have. i know that for mine, Premier account w/debit card, they yake 2.9-4.9% + .30 for each transaction no matter how much it is, which in my opinion stinks if someone pays me $1.00 they take almost all of it, but it is so much easier and the convience of having your $$ right then and there is great. You can try RME it is a good site, fairly new, and it doesn't ahve fees,yet. If you are interested email or pm me and I will give you the link for it.

Paypal never touches any of my money. I have a free account with them. The only way that Paypal will take any of your funds if you have a business or premier account with them. I used to have a premier account because I thought that is what we had to have and Paypal used to take my funds also, I would switch to a free one.
