I was surprised to see this today as I was interested in making a purchase using Paypal as a payment option and to my surprise the item was more expensive than the listed price. Upon looking at it closer, it seemed like the merchant was charging its customers a$2 surcharge fee for anyone who wished to use Paypal as a payment option.
It was funny in some ways as they didn’t seem to want to add this additional fee with using a credit card payment directly which makes me wonder if Paypal fees for the merchants are extremely high in comparison. Would you be more inclined to use your normal credit card instead in this case to avoid the $2 fee? It almost reminds me of merchants implementing a surcharge for customers who pay with a credit card instead of cash which is usually forbidden by the payment provider.
