  1. Thanks, I realised it but forgot to hide it!
  2. This extension seems to be glitchy still.. Today we have had more than one occasion where the response is Today, 15:59 Request Sent (cURL) - https://api.paypal.com/v2/checkout/orders/4BU53633E89179603[{"op":"replace","path":"/purchase_units/@reference_id=='6282651aaeb56'/amount","value":{"value":"71.10","currency_code":"GBP","breakdown":{"item_total":{"value":"66.35","currency_code":"GBP"},"shipping":{"value":"4.75","currency_code":"GBP"},"tax_total":{"value":"0","currency_code":"GBP"},"discount":{"value":"0","currency_code":"GBP"}}}},{"op":"replace","path":"/purchase_units/@reference_id=='6282651aaeb56'/shipping/name","value":{"full_name":"xxxxxx"}},{"op":"replace","path":"/purchase_units/@reference_id=='6282651aaeb56'/shipping/address","value":{"address_line_1":"xxxxxxxxxx","address_line_2":"xxxxxxxx","admin_area_1":"Undefined","admin_area_2":"xxxxxxxxxx","postal_code":"xxxxxxxx","country_code":"GB"}}] Response received (204 - No Content) Today, 15:56 Request Sent (cURL) - https://api.paypal.com/v2/checkout/orders/4BU53633E89179603[{"op":"replace","path":"/purchase_units/@reference_id=='6282651aaeb56'/amount","value":{"value":"71.10","currency_code":"GBP","breakdown":{"item_total":{"value":"66.35","currency_code":"GBP"},"shipping":{"value":"4.75","currency_code":"GBP"},"tax_total":{"value":"0","currency_code":"GBP"},"discount":{"value":"0","currency_code":"GBP"}}}},{"op":"replace","path":"/purchase_units/@reference_id=='6282651aaeb56'/shipping/name","value":{"full_name":"xxxxxxxx"}},{"op":"replace","path":"/purchase_units/@reference_id=='6282651aaeb56'/shipping/address","value":{"address_line_1":"xxxxxxxxx","address_line_2":"xxxxxxxxxxx","admin_area_1":"Undefined","admin_area_2":"xxxxxxxxx","postal_code":"xxxxxxx","country_code":"GB"}}] Response received (204 - No Content) Needless to say some lost sales and two frustrated customers on the phone :-(
  3. Sorry Al I didn't explain myself very well - there is a fee but it is only 1.5% across the board, there are no further costs providing you hit minimum sales. The minimum charge per month is just over £25 but if your sales cover this (approx £1700 per month @1.5%) there are no extras to pay. Will be away for the rest of today now - but thanks for your help. Dear Steven Bird, Thank you for contacting PayPal Email support regarding fee charged. Let me check what best I can do to help you and try guiding you to the best possible solution. Steven, the standard fee for goods and services fee will be 2.9%+fixed fee of 30p charges. For future reference, you may also want to check our Help Center for more information about fees. https://www.paypal.com/uk/webapps/mpp/paypal-fees I wish you and your family safety and healthy day ahead. “Thank you for contacting PayPal. We now provide Message service from Monday to Sunday 9:00AM - 9:00PM. To Message us, please log in to your PayPal account and click 'Contact’ at the bottom of the page” Yours sincerely, Nousheen PayPal
  4. Providing you hit minimum sales there is no fee
  5. Barclaycards - value payment gateway which is https://www.utpgroup.co.uk/
  6. Not competitive at all! 3% + 20p Gross amount £102.75 GBP PayPal fee -£3.28 GBP If it was only 1.2% the PayPal fee would be £1.44
  7. Not competitive at all! 3% + 20p Gross amount £102.75 GBP PayPal fee -£3.28 GBP
  8. Thanks very much Al, I think having the option would work - it's just that most traders hate paying PayPal fees but know we have to have it.
  9. We don't use BACs as our main payment gateway but our business clients prefer this method. Credit card charges are also quite often less than 1.5% so considerably less than PayPal! Drawbacks to using PayPal High chargeback fees. Higher fees than a typical merchant (credit card processing) account. Account suspension for terms and conditions (T&C) violations that can freeze your funds for months. May take 2 business days to get your money. Customer service can be hard to reach.
  10. Al, they probably need PayPal as you can't really run a business without it but so many of the other payment gateways are actually a lot cheaper from a processing fee perspective, particularly bank transfer which for us has no cost to the business at all!
  11. For me this is an exciting addition to the Noodleman range, will be giving this a good look!
  12. Agree with @Havenswift-Hosting - a really great idea but needs to have the option to delete rather than just sweep through all the associated images...
  13. I am with WorldPay and have just got them to halve all of their fees! They are helpful but like all financial institutions - they're only really in it for their shareholders :-(
