I never thought Paypal fees are high. They always seems to be reasonable

Considering the easiness, users trust, and number of clients using PayPal, I think its pretty justified.

since it is commonly used and known as "secure" I think fees are acceptable.but also annoying I have to accept

Where is elsewhere, Conor ?

Well I am using Paypal since last three years and I found their services at their best level. Also I think that if you are getting some good then you have to pay for it and that is the fee of PayPal. I don't think that it is bad.

The fees are reasonable in my opinion. The fees could be worse.

I must say that Paypal is worth the fees because you don't even have to think before you buy something anymore and you know that your money is secure and if you have a problem they will be their to resolve it and get your money back if need be. I have never had this problem but that doesn't mean it wont ever happen.

Paypal Fees I find are very fair.
Not everyone in this world can have a merchant account from a band with a CC Machine to process everything.

Paypal Is by fair the greatest thing I have ever ran across-ed for my hosting business.

Paypal charges a bit more than it should for businesses, for normal users, its fine.

PayPal is the best.

Their fees are lower than 2CO.

Besides if somebody pays us right now, I can turn around, go to a ATM machine and get the money out instantly with my PayPal Debit Card.

With 2CO, we have to wait for a week to get the funds in our bank.

And we get a bonus every time we use the PayPal Debit Card.

I have studied all processors out there, and the final conclusion is that PayPal is ahead of the pack by far.

If you don't agree, show me a better alternative. I'm waiting

PayPal's always been good for me. Sure the fees can get in the way of you making your product as cheap as possible for the client, however, understandably they are a company, and to keep running they need the money.

I'm perfectly fine with the fees as they are, and will happily continue to use paypal as my primary means of accepting payments (:
