    I agree, just factor in shipping & 3% PayPal into the price. Needless complication otherwise and makes you look like a penny pincher.

    I also find it odd that it never is mentioned here, that's why I bring it up. People that do this in their add are running the risk of getting reported and having their account locked/investigated which can take a huge amount of time and you may or sometimes may not get all your money back.

    For a luxury item like a watch I generally agree, lump shipping and the fee all in with the asking price, or just take the hit, I have several times. For my ebay stuff I generally cite what the shipping will be or for strange items I will allow the site to calculate exact shipment, mostly because the cost would put me out of competitiveness if I lumped everything together. Some take it way too far and cite excessive handling fees to get the price down so it looks good at first glance, I make it a habbit to strictly avoid stuff like that.

    What you can do is cite a lower cash or money order payment price, like the old gas stations used to do.

    Check out http://www.aboutpaypal.org/ and http://paypalsucks.com/ for some horror stories but really I have found that if you follow the rules and do everything correctly paypal works fine.

    What I have seen done in many cases is offer an X% discount for cash. That way the PP or CC fees are included with the asking price. My opinion on shipping varies. I don't mind paying actual cost, because I am usually saving in taxes. I cannot stand it when a seller wants to charge you $20 to ship an item that costs them $10.

    right, you're not allowed to charge extra for using paypal, but you are allowed to give a discount for using cash.
    nothing wrong with saying: $1550, with a $50 discount if paid with cash

    the only place that could possibly be enforced is Ebay. It's a bullying scare tactic otherwise. PayPal owns Ebay and vice versa. That's the only place they have jurisdiction how we present our sale ads. I mean really who the hell do they think they are?
