I always ask the buyer to pay the fees. The buyer has the option of sending the money as a “gift” in order to avoid the PayPal fees.I've also started using a new service from http://www.Venmo.com Functions very similar to PayPal but has a "social network" feel to it. Many of my friends use it. It has similar fees as well except if you use a Debit card, there is no fee. Not sure if PayPal does the same for debit cards.
