Starting this month, Paypal charges significantly higher fees.
They have become significantly more expensive then processing credit cards (and of cause way more then SEPA payments).
We do struggle in this combination of inflation, shortages and exchange rates in freefall, just like everyone else. So we where forced (and luckily PSD II allows us to) charge a 1% fee for Paypal payments. This makes up for a fraction of what they charge to process each payment and retains balance with the already expensive credit card payments.
The fee is made clear in the very name when choosing the payment method and is clearly shown as a separate item in the overview.
FYI: The cheapest online payment method will always be the SEPA bank transfer as it’s only a few cent per transaction in banking fees but no payment processor takes a cut.
