I am selling an a dress on ebay and hvae a potential customer from Germany, she wants to pay by paypal but I have noticed other sellers rejecting paypal offers from overseas beause of charges. Are there extra charges for overseas transactions and if so how much?

Thankyou - am a bit new to this!

I pay £150 to an Irish account fairly regularly and it costs £6 for the recipient. Makes no odds whether I pay in sterling or Euros. Don't know if it's a percentage or a fixed fee, though.
