TOS violations

Recommended Posts

I've been skimming the classifieds just to see what's out there and noticed something on a few postings... They're requiring the buyer to cover paypal's fees. This is against paypal TOS and they will not hesitate to take action if they find out. The last thing I want to see is anyone get a wrist-slap for something that should be so petty.

Maybe adding some kind of warning when a seller creates their listing (or in the listing guidelines) would be beneficial?
If you can't convince them, keep them confused.

It definitely won't become a rule here, as we are not involved in the actual sale transaction and we're merely putting the two parties in touch with one another. We can not be held liable for anything that happens between the two parties.

However, we think it's worth letting people know, for their own benefit - that they may be breaching TOS with regards to PayPal.
