Obviously many of us would probably prefer that there were none at all, but since they are much do they bother you?

Do you think that the fee's are excessive, or not all that bad?
Their fee's are cheaper if you are a low volume client vs going to a bank or gateway provider as most of those charge monthly fee's even if you do zero transactions. The savings of having a gateway provider vs paypal/google check out kind of balance out once you include all of the extra fees that the gateway providers include.

It does the job. Always looking for cheaper alternative though.

There is no alternative to PP. And, PP fees are not that high.

They are high, but they do have some things that can help you. Such as, if you have a lot of purchases under 10 dollars, you can get special rates so you don't pay as much.

PayPal's fee is worth it due to the consumer trust it has.

I think the fees are fair. I believe that PayPal has some of the lowest transaction fees.

For the large amount of payment (like $1,000), I avoid to use Paypal. We usually ask clients to wire.

For large payments you're only losing money when using paypal.

Gateway and Merchant fees are a part of doing business. Price you packages in a way to cover the fees.
