    How many of you accept PayPal payments from your customers? If you do, do you charge extra to cover PayPal's charges?

    Cheers!

    Get them to pay by BACS, if you have a normal current account you`ll pay nothing.

    If you have business banking you`ll have to read what it costs to have different things paid in.

    Majority of mine are BACS if not they pay when their in, if neither of these are an option for the customer I don`t bother as they usually are the messers.

    Dont collect and dont accept no money in the house as an excuse.

    OK, thanks for that guys.

    I assume you just give your customers your sort code and account number then? No security risks in doing that?

    If you paid someone with a cheque they would have more info on you then just giving them the acc and sort code numbers :)

    Its safe :) Plus most banks will help when it comes to fraud :)

    True mate! Not thought of that!

    And thanks Jones for your input. I reckon it would cost maybe £5 per £100 so not too bad I suppose. The bonus of PayPal is credit card payments.

    Cheers!

    Yeah, I'd setup PayPal to pay through my website (once I write it!) and tell customers it's an option on my "your windows have been cleaned" card ;)
