Paypal is a leecher!

20 Aug

My generous cousin from Asia decided to send me $150 CAD through Paypal for her beloved McD Minions, a part of the monies is for other things.

Paypal has a processing fee of 4.1% to the receiver.  So they took a cut of $6.15, I ended up receiving $143.85.  

Paypal charges a withdrawal fee of $0.50 for amounts under $150.00.  I get dinged again for transferring the money to my bank account. -_-

That’s the costs for sending money internationally.
