If that's really going to be an issue raise your fee $5 a month and eat the paypal fees, the colic walking, etc. I have been having to do this at my job (not a horse barn) Raise prices and including all those things we would have charged for in the past. Yah, people balk at first but they then realize that we are providing a better service and including stuff that used to have a extra charge.

Our BO asks us to pay the paypal fee if we opt to pay with paypal. We have the option to pay with either check, cash or paypal - paypal is easiest for me.

Its not a huge fee, its 5% of the purchase transaction. Less than 10 bucks for me (I work at the barn as well) and I don't mind it.

Equiniphile - Ya know the website says 2.9% but I think its more than that.. the invoices I send out range from $265 to $1000 and typically the fee is $7-$50.

And your bank fees are ??????

I assume you charge your boarders for cheque cashing fees also?

Are you one of those would prefer cash and if so do you give out receipts?...Do you charge them for the cost of the receipt book also?

I said THE FEES I didn't specify whether I charge them or not. I'll specify later. I'm curious what others do.

How does it make me a horrible person asking what other people charge? If you don't like my threads then don't read them! If you can't be nice or impartial, DON'T REPLY! Sorry but stick from butt removal is not one of the services I offer....lol
Did I say you were a horrible BO? No. I just said most people who are BO's don't have the time for this you seem to, rain or not.

You are asking, and we are giving our opinion, because this is a forum. I didn;t say I didn;t like your threads, actually, I find them entertaining. I love when people ask for opinions and they really don't want them. Makes for interesting banter, actually.

As for the last sentence-want to explain EXACTLY what you meant by that? I am pretty sure if it happened in your barn you would find a way to try and charge for it-or ask all here if you should.

I pay for my board generally in cash...five crisp $100 bills. As for using PayPal....I use PayPal all the time buying horsey stuff and cake supplies. I do not take credit cards for payment on wedding cakes - it is either cash or checks. I have had a few brides REQUEST to use PayPal and I always say sure...but they pay the fees because it isn't just a few dollars - it can be a chunk on a wedding cake and I am doing it for their convenience - not mine.

Paypal....REALLY??

OMG! If any of my students even suggested paying me with paypal....well, after I fell of my horse laughing, they better get ready for an hour lungeline lesson with no stirrups doing extended sitting trot!! Does that give you an idea that who pays the fees would be the least of their worries?? SHEESH!!

Like two percent of my threads have to do with money (an important part of running a business) but thanks for noticing... :roll: Don't you know me at all? I usually prefer to complain about my boarders! SHEESH! Get it right you guys!!! Lol
