PortAthon Payment, Paypal Fee

Today i got an instant payment from Milestone for Gotgame Portathon ($700USD). Paypal charge fee amount for 700USD is $27.6USD (3.9% on the total sales plus a fixed fee of US$0.30 per transaction). Cant imagine i should pay 78.3usd (almost worth 1 app reward) if for allboard/community/android/lastchance portathon all my 20 apps approved. No alternative payment method beside paypal. I did not make an app just for paypal fee Smiley Very Happy Sorry for my english

If i remember correctly, sending paypal payments in the form of GIFT will not have any fee's.

Re: PortAthon Payment, Paypal Fee

I hate Paypal for their fees, I have to pay a fee just to receive the port-a-thon money and then to convert it from USD to euro!

Welcome to Appworld and Paypal.  Even with RIM's own commerce it still sends our money using paypal.
