    Has anyone paid online using Paypal ?
    If so, check if you have been charged the credit card fee. I was charged the extra and have phoned to complain. This will be rectified by the end of the day.

    Apparently we should not be charged anything for using Paypal.
    You will need to phone and let them know, as they didn't realize there was a problem until I phoned

    Paid using paypal, and my total was £97.08 inc EHU, and £2.58 was a credit card fee! Only just noticed it on my booking details printout.

    Odd. PP will rip them off just like the CCs will.

    Sellers are not allowed to pass the paypal charges onto the paypal buyers.

    If this is a major problem report the seller

    The kind gentleman that I spoke to was unaware of the problem but said he would get his IT man to correct it. Don't know if they will refund you though. I cancelled my transaction when I saw additional charge.

    I have never understood companies who do this.

    When I price things I calculate all costs including payment charges, add my margin and charge that as the rate.

    I make a few pennies more off people who pay by debit card :Rofl1:
    Never had a complaint yet because everyone pays the same price.

    Well it hasn't been rectified.

    Mine was also £2.92 WITHOUT EH, couldn't see the option for it but will ring tomorrow to book over the phone and also to tell them the "problem has NOT been rectified.

    It does indeed, they will have another in the morning.:Sad:

    I rang my order through as was having trouble on web site, they took my debit card details but then managed to charge my paypal account, not too bothered as it comes from the same account

    I chose to book electrics, knew the price before I booked so am not now complaining, but am more surprised at lack of comment on here to that charge rather than the relatively small fee for paypal, they will at least have had that cost or even a bit more

    We will be hard pushed to use £35 worth of electrics

    £3 will barely get me out of our town in fuel, doesn't seem worth the trouble of reclaiming to me

    Feel free to complain to the people responsible.
    The Paypal charges should never be passed on to the customer.

    I suspect the £35 fee for ehu is not for useage so much but for them to have a firm install hookups on the field for the duration of the camping. Fair enough I suppose!

    Well I rang and spoke to Heather, she asked me to fill in a form that she sent me by E mail, and on receipt would then ring me for payment. This form was absolute rubbish cobbled together in a hurry in word. I filed it in fully emboldening the information and highlighting it in red to make it easier to read. Heather came back and said it could not be read at her end and could I convert it to PDF format, not sure how I can do this even if I have the facility on my computer. Had devils own job to find where I saved anyway so I'm getting a bit frustrated with the whole business. Since there appears to be a lot of us attending they have come to the conclusion they need some sort of paper trail and have come up with this awful form, anyone else had to fill one out?
    If they don't take my payment over the phone I have a good mind to pull out I am that peed off with them.

    Yes, it crossed my mind to do the same if there was a problem with the second form I E mailed them but no one has rung me back (yet), won't be today that's for certain.

    I have to say they were very polite and helpful and didn't charge me for using credit card
