With regards to selling on BCUK:

Paypal have now changed their policy with regards to who pays the fees on a transaction. It is no longer an option for a buyer to pay the fees, instead the 3.4% + 20p fee is automatically deducted from the incoming funds.

1. We've noticed that some sellers are still asking that the buyer pays the fees.
2. As from 3 April 2013, 00.00 GMT a new rule will come into effect:

When a seller accepts a payment from a buyer using Paypal, he/she must accommodate the 3.4% (or any future amended percentage) + 20p (or any future amended amount) fee into their price, failure to do so will result in them being out of pocket.
3. Sellers are not allowed to ask the buyers to pay the fees but instead should include it in their price.
4. If a seller acts in breach with this rule, the thread will be removed without any notice: we will NOT be PMing people to explain ourselves, we'll just bin the threads.
5. Re-posting a removed sales thread will also be removed. Infractions may follow.
6. If your sales thread vanishes from the forums: PM a Moderator.
