Hello,

I just found this site from PBS.com and I was wondering what the transfer fee is for? This fee does not exist for PBS. A quick search didn't turn up any results on this question.

 

Thanks

Andrea B.

It's a service fee.  I belive it goes just to pay expenses of running/maintaining the site.

A very small price to pay to keep such a great site up and running.

It also goes to guarentee the transaction--something PBS at least doesn't have.

If the CD shows up broken, scratched, etc--you get your fee & credit back. No dealing with the sender. 

Very nice.

I have never been able to understand the explanation for this fee.

What does it mean to guarantee a transaction

Delivery confirmation provides a semblance of a guaranteed transaction on both PBS and SwapaDVD.

Yet, that fee is optional.

it means exactly what Kayote stated in her post:
