Now that my birthday is over, I figure I would mention Dwolla here once more. I see people getting stuffed by PayPal often enough that I figure that the ones who can use this service should be aware of it and use it whenever possible.
Dwolla is a service that allows users to transfer funds in a very inexpensive manner.
Are you a starving artist that does $5 sketches? How much does PayPal charge you or the buyer now? What does it take to get PayPal snooping around in your money if you're avoiding the fees? Do you have a credit union or bank account?
Offer your buyers a choice. Sure, you can keep accepting PayPal. But anything under ten bucks on Dwolla is free.
If nothing else, you can start to drop off the PayPal radar after accepting Dwolla.
My Dwolla Referral link also gets you $10 in transaction fee credits. That'll make forty of your transactions over ten bucks free, too.
