    That's how it always works! A company gets a monopoly, then starts taking advantage of it.

    Well they gotta make money somehow. Credit card companies ding merchants account fees and a percentage of each transaction. Then they charge the consumer outrageous interest rates and late fees.

    The 30 cents is big bite out of a $1.50 transaction.

    Both of your points are completely correct. I still think paypal should use only a percentage charge, however, for the reason you mentioned. I do believe, with their thousands of transactions daily, that they can afford to keep fees low.

    Lets just say "Cheers!" for the personal transfer option! Thanks for bringing that to the public's attention
