I pay my board fee in cash. Board is $180 + GST per month (=189.00). I'm very lucky my barn owner is extremely understanding, because I pay $200 one month (to cover 2 months of GST because I hate having to find change) and $180 the next. I alternate, he's never short money and it makes it easier for me. We all win!

If given the option though, I would love to pay via Email Money Transfer. Not Paypal. I hate PayPal.

I think the barn should pay for it.I would rather pay by cash or check and shouldn't get charged for it.Also I think everyone being mean to starline they are asking questions and should get honest answers not just be attacked and have other posts she brought up mentioned.

Yes and no. I've seen at one rescue site you pay $$$ in check, but $$$ + extra if you use paypal. So depends on how you put it really. But frankly I find it odd to pay boarding thru paypal. Checks and cash is the most common way of payment where I live.

Allison, I think I'll suggest Gretchen next time I want to pay her thru PayPal! I wonder what she'll do! LMAO!

I think this is a legitimate question! If paypal is mandatory for payment the barn should pay it. If it is an option and given for the convience of boarders the boarder should pay it. It is their choice to pay that way. Those fees can get pricey, and if a lot of your boarders opt to pay that way it could be a fairly decent loss of profit.

By the same token if paying by cheque is an option then the bank fees should be charged to the boarder?

They also can be heafty.

What bank fees for a check though? That confused me when I read it earlier. Do some banks charge a fee to write a check?

Depending on the bank they can and will charge to cash a cheque and if you deposit over a certain number of cheques in a month then there are monthly fees. If you have a business account those fees can be quite a bit.

Some banks will even charge you to COUNT the cheques if it is more than one. If you deposit via the ATM then there could be fees there also.

You seem to have no idea.....but I do.

What do you mean I seem to have no idea? That was kind of uncalled for I think. I have never heard of or paid a fee to deposit a check so that makes me clueless?
If I had a buisness that required many check deposits I would probably find a bank without fees if possible. But that being said those fees in my opinion would be on the barn. Not the boarders fault your banks has fees on checks.

And before I wrote this I asked my mom who has owned a buisness if she had run into this issue. She said no. Paypal to me is a convinience to the boarder so I will stand by my opinion on the issue.

If people disagree it matters not to me, its why its my opinion. I have never boarded nor do I own a boarding stable so I am sure I do look at it differently than the people paying or being paid.

Is it typical for business account? I wonder because I've never heard of fee to cash the check for the private one (of course if check is not valid or no money then they can). I'm not saying it's not there, but in several banks I had accounts in you could put as many as you wished - no fee. The transfer is whole different story: those can be charged depending on transaction.

Yes, on business checking accounts, you are generally allowed a set number of transactions per month (which would include both checks written and checks cashed/deposited), and every transaction beyond that number incurs a fee. Large businesses typically have what is known as an "analyzed account" which allow them to receive credits for maintaining a high balance that can then be used to offset these fees, but the average small business will not have enough cash on hand month to month to meet the balance requirement for an analyzed account.
