Asking a person to pay extra for something that you should absorb the price of is nothing more than milking your buyer for more than they should be paying for. Anybody that asks me to pay their Paypal fees will get their message forwarded to a mod. If I see any posting asking for a buyer to pay Paypal fees, I will also make it a point to forward it to a mod for review.
While I don't disagree with the general point of your post, are you
ing serious with this? A sanctimonious lecture from someone completely new to the trading forums is ridiculous enough, but you're basically saying you're going to cause a stink about anyone who even suggests
that a buyer pays paypal fees? And report them to a mod as if they've committed some major violation? Good luck getting anyone in the trading forum who reads this post to trade with you.
I think most people will simply be exploring other options for payment, I know that's what I'll be doing. As long as other options of payment are provided, I don't see anything particularly wrong with asking people to cover the fees if they choose to use paypal. And for you, or anyone, to throw such a hissy fit over something which usually amounts to about fifty cents far surpasses the ridiculous and borders on me wondering whether you were going for a well-disguised satire of a condescending twit. If so, well played.
