Taking the mick. So they stop using PayPal, but instead of passing that saving onto customers they just charge more and pocket it themselves. Honestly wasn't worth me selling the poxy thing in the end.
I like the fact the fees are instant now

I used to hate having a clear out of stuff and then month later getting a bill and it's like for crying out loud

However I don't like that it's no longer instant payment

I used to wait until the money was paid by the selling into PayPal before sending

The delay in payment is key for me as you still have to send the item and yet the money isn't in your bank for a few days.

As has been said - Marketplace from now on.

i sort of agree but recently sold two clubs on EBay auction for a lot more than I would have put them up for on FB Marketplace. You also don’t have to deal with all the time wasters and people turning up at your house!

There is some recourse with EBay and if you time it right with reduced sellers fees I feel it’s decent value to reach a much wider audience.

As always tho it's greed

They could make more than enough with half that fee

The fees you pay now are similar to the fees you paid before.
The 3%( or thereabouts) you paid to PayPal you now pay to the Dutch payment processing company ( Adyen?) who do what PayPal used to.
The extras you got from PayPal like buyer protection and the like are now being done directly by ebay and thats where the little extra is going.
Wait for the final value fee deals ( 80% off this weekend I think) and the value is there.

Finally got to the point of exchange on our house today......
Solicitor emailed at 16.55 that we hadn't signed a form, that they hadn't sent us. Missed the cut off. Absolutely fuming, I've asked them constantly if we had signed everything, as we have been ready for ages, and now it's us that have held everyone else up. Jokers.

As per my post in Things that gladen the heart, my replacement Skycaddie has been delivered....apparently...somewhere...just not to me.
Good old Royal Mail have sent me an email informing me of the delivery..
Nobody was in.
No card has been left to give me a clue..
Next door haven't got it and the other side are out...could spend the day making door to door enquiries
Well played Royal Mail you bunch of Know-nothing Bozos....:mad::poop:

And all my players in the fantasy league have forgotten how to play and a collective 12 over par today - and there only 4 of them..
And I couldn't park outside my house
And I forgot to put the dishwasher on
And the bread's gone mouldy..

I'd give up and go to bed but I'd probably fall out.....:cautious:

at the risk of sounding like a kid saying "he started it", a lot of this sort of stuff is caused by the same poster posting the same "woke / cancel culture" rubbish day after day and people reacting to it. maybe it needs tackling at the source?
And who would that be then?? C'mon, give us a clue ( or 3 )----Pleez!

Can YOU believe it ? Guy called SHAUGHNESSY(?) playing in the Finland vs. Denmark game-brilliant!!
BTW-any thoughts on your new manager rudiebhoy??
