Sorry Barb, looks like I didn't read the posts properly when I asked for an update!! Glad you got a refund, but mad it cost you so much (time + effort)!!

Like I said before, Paypal and Ebay owners are making A LOT OF MONEY off everyone who uses them!! Can't escape it, but people uses it because it's immediate . . . the price you pay.

Banks are the same. I have to pay a 1.25% 'conversion fee' to my bank on top of Paypal fees when I send or receive money in another currency. Also, I tried to deposit some money into another person's account who lived in another state. They tried to charge me $5.00 for the privilege. Call me old fashioned, but I sent a cheque for 50cents . .. . took longer, but was 10% of the 'quick way'.

Computers seem to like charging BIG fees for doing a quicker job, even when a person doesn't have to be involved. The poor posties who have to deliver it make no money for their time and effort. A click of a button costs SO MUCH more!!

Nancy, in some instances if you accept money from Paypal, it costs you. So even though Barb's account may be in credit it may not be the full $20.00 she can use. Depends what account you have.

For me to accept the $20.00, it would have cost me more than the $1.50 that it cost Barb because I am considered an 'international' account even though I deal in US funds. <img src='style_emoticons//mad.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’mad.gif’ />

However . . . . what can ya do?? Can't beat the system, have to join it. <!–emo&<_<img src='style_emoticons//dry.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’dry.gif’ />
It costs more to send Money orders sometimes, PLUS you have to consider the exchange rate, PLUS you have to go to the bank, PO or wherever you can send one from.

But hey, we Aussies still look on the bright side . . . no cold or snow to shovel trying to get there . . . . . . <img src='style_emoticons//laugh.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’laugh.gif’ /> <img src='style_emoticons//laugh.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’laugh.gif’ />
