With regards to selling on BCUK:

Paypal are now clearly stating that the seller picks up the 3.4% + 20p fee, buyers pay nothing.

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 will picks up the 3.4% (or any future amended percentage) + 20p (or any future amended amount) fee.

3. Sellers are not allowed to ask the buyers to pay the fees.
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.
