Fees... What a bummer!

Hey guys - Ok, so I have to admit that I'm fairly new this whole paypal thing. I know what you're probably thinking... "Really Felicia! Get with the program yo!"
And it's not that I don't purchase things online. It's more rather that I don't sell items - in mass - online. To be honest the majority of the items that I sell are to friends and family or friends of friends... and what not.
What I've come to realize as the seller of items is that when using paypal - there are these pesty fees... in a word - bummer
First - thank you to anyone that's purchased things from my blog! You've all been great!
But here's my thought for future buyers...
If you're going to use paypal - no problem! But I'm requesting that you "gift" the money to me so that there aren't any fees.
(For those of you like me - when paying instead of Purchase, use the Personal tab and mark the gift option *hehe)
At first a dollar here or there doesn't seem like a lot, but when it happens to every order...
To be honest with you all - it adds up yo! LOL
P.S. Among other things my camera has decided that it really doesn't want to use it's flash anymore and will only take blurry pictures for me :( I'm in the process of getting another one but I promise I will have some updates on my crafts posted as fast as I can!
Thanks a bunch everyone!!!!


  1. I noticed that it still wanted to charge me a fee even when I did the personal/gift payment if I was using a credit card. it let me change it to a draft of my checking account and then the fee went away.
