Atenacious: If you used the gift option on the second payment, then you are one of two payers so far that is getting a fee applied. I will allow this to go through as is, because the refund I issued still applied a fee....
Let me explain what happened:
1. You paid $25. A fee of $1.03 was applied, netting me $23.97.
2. I issued a refund, seeing a fee of $0.73 as I clicked accept refund. You lost $0.73 - I wasn't happy about this, but what can we do - I was clicking too fast.
3. You paid a second total of $25.73. A fee of $1.05 was applied. I net $24.68, which is 32 cents less than the asking price. Conclusion: PayPal is a little richer than it was before
I have been reading that Paypal has an option to apply fees to the recipient or yourself. Please select yourself from now on everyone!
