The transfer is whole different story: those can be charged depending on transaction.

As I said..depending on the bank and type of account you have. Some can be very hefty. And some will charge transfer fees and fees you would not even know existed.

I work for a financial institution and hear the complaints every day from customers so I do have that knowledge.

Yeah some do. I can't say which financial institutional I work for as it would breach confidentiality rules I signed when I was hired but as I said you have no idea. That in no way means you are less than intelligent, just that there is more that goes on that what most people know...until they run into one of these '' charges''.

Well, I shop banks well, I earn interest on my checking and pay NO fees. If a cake client insists on paying with paypal, THEY pay any fees I may incur. They are allowed to pay by cash or check, but some want paypal, and I'm not eating fees for it to be convienant for them.

Email transfer would also be handy, as long as the BO understood how it worked.

I do not cash many cheques, nor write a lot of them, but I have also never been charged for it. But, it is into a personal account as well, and not a business account.


I actually think this is a legitimate question. Paypal is a newer method of payment, and should be taken into account, just like paying by cash or cheque.

Just to clarify, is it a boarder (or two) who are wanting to use this service, or is it you?

If the boarder is the one wanting to use it (and you would rather cash or cheque) then perhaps it is the boarder who should absorb the fee. However, if you are the one requesting they use paypal instead of cash or cheque, then it should be you who takes the hit with the fee.

I agree. Paypal is not something very common, but is used more lately. As I already mentioned some places charging extra fee when you pay through PP, some don't. For example court houses in my state charge extra fee if you use credit card to pay the fee or ticket (paying by check = no fee). So it all different really.

I agree. If there is the option for the boarder to pay by cash or check and they choose paypal, the boarder should pay the fee.

However if the BO insists that everyone pay by PayPal and only PayPal then the barn should pay the fee.

Personally, I accept cash, check and paypal. I've also accepted the Chase transfer money thing. I've had one or two use paypal but now I have a good amount that use it. I just ate the fee before but now, I'm seeing how much money I'm losing a month and its enough to raise an eyebrow. I think I found a way to skirt it though so I"m going to see if we can accomplish that first.
