Contradicting stories about PayPal fees (at the other site)
To all the people that has been charged a fee by PayPal at the other site ( that is ff you are one of the lucky ones to have received a payment lately), here is some information that I have seen and received in the last few days about this issue.
First of all paperdaisyflower7 published this post about the PayPal fees becoming a trend at the other site. I myself was charged a fee but then out of courtesy PayPal reversed the charged, and explained it was due to the way the payment came.
You see, it was made as Payment for Good and Services, and so PayPal charges a fee.
However, they stated the following on a email sent to me:
"Fees are only applied if the sender sends the money as a payment for goods and services . B…..s has the option to send the payment to family and friends, this way, you will not be charge for fees ."
However in this post by CoralLevang she says that the Support team at B…..s (the other site) sent her an email stating : " PayPal has instructed us to make all repayments as goods and services . Please understand that PayPal is charging us to use their services."
Clearly these are two different positions and the two companies seem to be making the other party the ultimate responsible for the decision, but so far members have not been informed of any changes.
I have contacted the other site’s support team in search of an answer, but so far I have not heard anything. I hope they get back to me with a clarification of this situation. I will share it with everyone if/when ever it gets answered.

Hopefully, the fees are paid back to the members. It makes earning a tad bit difficult if we are to consider the earnings from at least one post to cover the PayPal fees. Either way, i think it is up to bubble ooze to inform their members about these fees.

allen0187 that is my position too, there a lot of work needed to have now to pay fees for payments.

I think I've heard about this there too. Yeah, it is confusing and odd how the two sites seem to be blaming each other for charging fees. Have you received a response yet as to what's really going on?

FreyaYuki No, true to their tradition they ignored my email. I was about to write another post on this, but have not gotten the time to do it.

The fee takes a large part of our earnings. When we transfer to our bank account without meeting the minimum required for transfer, there is another charge.

scheng1 Did not know that, I know that the charged fee is a percentage (around 3%) of the redeemed amount.

International members are always at a disadvantage. That's a fact.

My paypal fee on the bubblews payment was higher, it was about 6.8%

livingnow I guess you fee also included the International (Cross border) fee. Still Bubblews was never clear about these fees.
