    High Paypal commission

    Hi, neilarey !
    I've donated via Paypal and saw what commission they took.
    25% for $10 donation and 16,5% for $20 donation. It's too high in my opinion.
    Can you consider to add Patreon as a support method?

    https://support.patreon.com/hc/en-us...-Creator-Plans - overall fees are about 10% or less.

    And thank you and all DAREBEE team for your work!

    That's why I use bank transfer for donating.

    as far as I know there are no fees deducted. so all the money goes to darebee. But patreon is a good idea.

      sergeev hi and thank you so much for your support! we really appreciate it PayPal is less than ideal, we agree, but unfortunately it's better than everything else available to us out there at the moment (we are in the EU so our options are limited, there are more payment systems available in the US). We used to have an account on Patreon but we closed it because it doesn't agree with our ideology. Plus, they take a cut and then still use PayPal to pay creators (while holding on to the money in the meantime) and we end up with the PayPal fees anyway.

      PayPal charges 2.9% + $0.30 per transaction. It's not too bad compared to other services. From $10 DAREBEE will get $9.50. The service we use for bank transfers charges much better fees but PayPal is easier for most people to use and it's more popular.

      I hope this makes sense and helps Again, thank you so much for thinking of us!

        But even for bank transfer, the international transfer and conversion charges add up to be the same as that deducted at PayPal.. may be bank transfer is best for those in EU and others Paypal though the final contribution is less than intended..
