I think its a great idea. Ive been thinking about it myself. What percentage do you give to pay pal? what are any other costs associated with using this? can you set people up to charge thier account on the same day monthly?
Please keep us posted on how this works out.

Ok using cc's under $15.00 .30 $15.00 or more 2.2% + .30
Non cc Checking account or paypal balance under $15.00 .30 $15.00 or more 1.6% to .30 maximum fee of $5.00

Fees are charged on incomming payments only No fees for sending money

Personall accounts remain free fees are the same for recieving international payments..

Shortly after signing up to Pay Pal to make a credit card transaction I received a letter from my bank saying that they needed to issue a new credit card, and that the old one was no longer valid. Seems an online service ( bank did not state with one) had been hacked and credit card info was stolen. Coincident? . I don't know, but I hadn't made any credit card purchase's for about 2 months prior to that. I haven't used Pay Pal since.

Again, I do not know if it was Pay Pal that was hacked. It could have been someone else as far as I know. But it did seem kind of related to me.
