Received this yesterday from PayPal about their new policy:

quote:

"....In line with industry practice and according to our updated policy, we will not charge a fee to process refunds, but the fees from the original transaction will not be returned...."

unquote

That's pretty self-explanatory, but NOT in line with "industry practice". In a normal retail sale, when a customer pays with a credit card, the merchant fees are credited back to the seller when a return credit occurs. As did PayPal for 25 years.

That's disgraceful. I receive funds by PayPal regularly these days for thorn needle orders, which I doubt will ever need the refund facility, but I also sell on eBay and as we all know, rogue buyers and scammers can lead sellers a merry dance there. One can only hope that enough sellers complain or vote with their feet, and that PayPal come to their senses as a result.

It has motivated me to again accept credit cards directly. I am in the process of activating my merchant credit card account, which has been dormant for many years since PayPal was so handy to use.

Actually, I have on average only about one return per year; can't remember when the last one was. But the arrogance of PayPal to adopt such a policy, and then lie about it being "industry standard" is galling.

I don’t think that’s the case any longer.
