PayPal takes as high as 4% - 5% of the credit amount. Then, there is the conversion rate factor as well. A huge chunk goes there, depending on the currency. All big platforms like Sedo, Afternic, Dan, Flippa etc. have PayPal as one of the important and easy Payment options. As a buyer, it makes sense to pay since you are paying at the price you agreed to, but as a seller, it is a big hole in the pocket. My credit is 6 - 7% lower. For a $5,000 sale on Afternic, you pay: 1) A 20% commission (in this case, it would be $1000) 2) $4,000 gets credited in your account 3) PayPal takes approx 5% 4) Actual amount in the Paypal ($3,800) 5) Currency converts at a different of 2% (average for any country) 6) I receive $3,724 If a platform does the same at 2% commission, the same sale would look like this: 1) A 20% commission (in this case, it would be $1000) 2) $4,000 gets credited in your account 3) Platform takes approx 2% overall 4) I receive $3,920 Difference = $3,920 - $3,724 = $196. Let's consider some more buffer and find it at $150 as the difference. That is equal to the investment in 1 4L .com that can then have a potential to sell for high $$$ or low $$$$. Just by using a platform that takes higher commission, I am actually foregoing a possible 4 figure sale. What's the option? Most buyers prefer PayPal because everyone has it. Is there an alternative to get away with 2% or so as the fees and not the 6-7% that we end up paying, without causing an issue with the deals, such that the buyer is also comfortable?
