How come price changes from buying to paypal?


#1

Good Morning,

I just went to buy an animated logo and the price jumped from what was advertised on the seller’s page when I went to Paypal. I am a UK buyer, if that makes a difference. I just don’t think it’s fair if the prices are inaccurately advertised. Or am I not checking/clicking something when I should be?

Thank you.

You need to specify the price margin it jumped. If the price is advertised as 5$ the you pay 6$. The 1$ is a processing fee.

It said there was an 80p processing fee, on top of the cost, but then it jumped up another £1 approximately on top of that - without explanation.

Could it be VAT? 20 chars

That’s a possibility. But why is it added on by Paypal? Shouldn’t fiver put that on when they add the processing fee?


#6

PayPal knows you live in the UK, Fiverr doesn’t?

That’s true. Maybe there’s something I can edit on my profile that might tell me if that’s the case when I next go to pay.
