extra charge?

I got an email after I paid for my tune that says that if you pay by PayPal then there's a 3% extra fee that must be paid separately... is that legit? PayPal was the only option I was given to pay for it and I didn't see anything before I paid for it that said there would be an extra fee for using PayPal... if this is legit why not incorporate that extra 3% into the price of the product instead of sending a rather shady looking email after the fact asking to send extra money which will be charged again with PayPal fees.

When I first asked Tom about ordering a tune from him, he already mentioned a 3% extra fee for paypal, so I already knew how much should I pay ...

Yes there is a 3% paypal fee , I mention this in all emails about the price as well on dozens of times here all around the forums

I dont add it in because a lot of people pay with check or MO and they shouldnt have to pay the fee

no the $12 didn't bother me I just thought it was weird to get an email saying to send extra money, and then it bothered me that when I asked about it to verify that it was legit no one responded...

and ok Tom thanks for the reply :)

I'm not trying to be rude or anything I just like to know what's going on when I'm sending money around online and I've never bought anything from anyone and then seen an email saying to send more money so I was trying to figure out what was going on

i was informed about it before i bought my tune off tom, about 3 months ago now,

bassfreake, i do know were your coming from bro, as the internet is full of scams and fly by nights, but usually, with paypal you cant go wrong, the 3% paypal charge goes to paypal, not to the seller of the tune
