What are the PayPal fees in Australia?

If you are not using PayPal, you must be buried in some cave. PayPal started out as a small monetary transaction system and is quickly turning into the universal transaction service of the internet. It is a way of paying a merchant and having the additional security of knowing that not only is your information safe, but your transaction is guaranteed as well.

PayPal allows account holders to enter their information and use it for transaction on any merchant site that will allow it. Seeing the convenience of use, many merchants are offering the option to pay, redirecting the transaction from their check out, to PayPal’s secure site, then back to their website. It gives the consumer the convenience of not having to find their wallet and input their credit card information every time they want to make a transaction.
