Vital Imagery Ltd. keeps telling me that paypal is accessing a fee on my payment yet out of 22 companies that I use paypal with do not charge a fee. Would you say Vital Imagery Ltd. is wrong?

Thanks

I think I explained that before, same applies here.

All PayPal users using PayPal mass payments to pay a recipient absorb the fee. The mass payment is an excel sheet with recipients, and for every line the sender pays a fee based on the amount per line. The fee changes per country and is something like 2% per line with a maximum of $20 per line. When a company uses single transactions to pay a recipient, the fee is paid by the recipient. In this case I suspect VI is paying in single transactions and so you pay the PayPal fee. The height of the % you pay depends on what tier with PayPal you are.

I just joined them, I am actually uploading my whole port on FTP at this instant. I regret it already.

I'm not a fan of Vital Imagery. I sell through them via iClipart. Almost every time I find someone on Etsy or some print-on-demand site selling something with my work on it, they got it from iClipart because of their overly generous licensing policies. They essentially grant EL rights without an actual EL.

I haven't uploaded anything new there in a while, nor will I. This little PayPal fee policy doesn't inspire me to change my mind about them.

Considering how little I make with them anyway, it might be time to reconsider my relationship with them.

After reading this I will probably close my account now. I've been reaching payout each month but I don't want to ruin my chances of real priced ELs from other companies.

Who?
Why?  That site looks absolutely horrible for contributors.  100 downloads per day and the cost is $99 per year.  How can anyone support that?
