Why are you paying Paypal up to 18c MORE per $1 transaction (MP3, eBook, Video sale) than you need to?
That's Your Money being wasted
There is no doubt that the king of online payment methods is currently Paypal in terms of its huge user community. Millions of transactions occur every day.
Great upsides with Paypal : free sign up, used everywhere and acknowledged by all (especially eBay, since they bought them), manages a mix of credit & debit cards and bank accounts for payment, withdraw money anytime and known fee structure (though you have to be a bit handy with a calculator to work them out).
Twippr Saves You Money On Each transaction
Let me tell you a secret, you could easily be earning more money by accepting Twippr for payments and donations on your website, blog, podcast etc.
How Much Extra Could I Earn?
The average fee for a transaction on Paypal is 2.9% + 30c.
10 x $1 transactions will cost you $3.30, leaving you just $6.70 from those $10
Those same transactions are agregated together by Twippr, with a single fee (4%) deducted when you withdraw funds.
Twippr would leave you with $8.52, that's an extra $1.82 in your pocket.
Only pay Twippr a fee if you withdraw funds
That's like buying dollars for 82c
