    A few people seem to like it, but I think they're in a minority. I don't, and wouldn't, use it - too many problems seen reported on here. No idea what the fees are - I wouldn't use it even if it was free I'm afraid. Lots of hassle and lousy support IMO.

    The fees are listed on the PPPay home page.

    It is nice if transferring funds between two PPPay accounts as there are no fees. Other than that there is not a lot to recommend it. Too complicated for buyers using it for the first time - who think they have paid but in fact have not until they complete a (non-refundable) penny check. The buyer also has to pay a fee to send money - which many do not like.

    Rather like a toy a child has lost interest in. A pity, as a good alternative to PayPal (within the EU at least) would be a blessing.



    Preferably English or Welsh.

    For anyone who maintains a positive pppay balance to buy/sell on eBid then it's great - for everyone else it's a bit crap and in no way comparable to paypal.


    They're supposedly controlled by the eBid site owners but no-one has notified them of the site re-brand judging upon their outdated home page logo









    This screenshot shows the fees for UK buyers/sellers (yes it really would cost a newbie 0.49 extra to buy something from you and it would cost you a minimum of 0.75 to withdraw your money):

    If you are selling high value / high risk items then the Escrow feature may be useful.



    Preferably English or Welsh.
