Paypal charges a fee to use their service now, whether the buyer uses his credit card or goes through his checking account to pay. When people state that they will take non-credit card paypal, they don't realize that there is no longer a difference.
There are two ways that some sellers are trying to get around the fee. They ask the buyer to use the "personal" option, which is dishonest when there is a buyer and seller arrangement. Or they try to charge the buyer the paypal fee. I don't think it is wise to advocate another way for sellers to use to not pay the fee themselves. If they say I will give you a discount if you don't use paypal, isn't that basically doing the same thing? I think people should price the items at a price that will include their costs.... period. If a seller uses the paypal service, they should pay the fee. It is basically the same with merchants and credit cards. They are charged a fee for being able to offer credit card service but they don't offer two prices to customers... one for credit cards and one for cash. Sometimes they might offer a better deal if you use "their" credit card but that is a different situation. In general, if they don't want to pay for the credit card option, they don't accept credit cards.
