Re: Paypal in bounties

Subject: Re: Paypal in bounties

Today I think about it again. I don't want to give money to Paypal and thus don't want to give money for a bounty.
If I count the difference between the money transfered and what remains (only from the donations of this page), we lost next to 300 euros. It would have been a nice bounty amount

@joerg & @elwood:

I think you guys are ignoring that bank-to-bank transfers
are rarely done by consumers in the US.

Most banks charge a hefty fee for such things ($20 or more
for international) and you have to go into the bank to do them.
Do the math - you're talking about a 20+% expense on a
$100 transfer.

Compared to that, PayPal is a relative bargain and dramatically
more convenient.

Maybe Moneybookers/Skrill is a cheaper alternative, but
their site is quite uninformative and contradictory on
what services they even offer in the US. One place they
say no credit cards in the US, other places yes. ????

Not confidence inspiring.

Maybe there's someone more serious about this?

Or maybe we just need to get over that transatlantic transfers
between different financial worlds are a pain in the neck
and costly?
