Hi folks,

I've been researching Amazon's Honor System. I'd like to have an
alternative to PayPal.

The problem is that Amazon takes a BIG bite out of payments received,
to the tune of 15% plus 15 cents! Compare that with PayPal, which
takes on average [2.9% + 30 cents], and [3.4% + various] for
international payments.

I think Amazon's fee is highway robbery.

Do we want to give up 15% of payments received just to offer Amazon
as an alternative?

Feedback welcome...


P.S. PayPal's fees:
