PayPal Tax?

I use PayPal with Cryptic and have never had to pay 'tax' before to either PayPal or Cryptic themselves. I have also sold and purchased large items, including motorcycles and cars with PayPal through eBay in the past and again, never had to pay any sort of tax. When selling I was charged a fee by PayPal when receiving funds, but that isn't a tax.

Inevitably, the company or person charging you is responsible for any PayPal expenses and are charged a fee via PayPal. I am not saying your mistaken, but rather, PayPal Germany is either ripping you off or there is something else at play here!

You should look into it.

Edit: P.S. Cryptic occasionally has Life Time Sales! The price goes down to $199 once or twice or year.

Hmm, I don't think PayPal has a tax, I'm thinking it must be VAT. I know that's something that my friends from across the pond have to deal with whenever they make transactions in the US. It's a bummer, but not much anyone can do about it.

This Paypal-Tax for a Lifetime-Subscription is really strange.

But an upcoming sale for Lifetime-Abos would be really great. Especially regarding the release of the Romulan expansion pack.

This comes up fairly frequently.

To recap:
  • Cryptic will obviously not announce exactly when sales are, since that'd stop most people from buying it when it's not on sale.
  • Executive Producer Dan Stahl has said there will be approximately two lifetime sales per year.
  • There have been 2 sales (bringing price from $300 to $200) since the game went F2P: June 5-29 and October 9-November 12.
  • Lifetime members receive all the veteran rewards (from 100 days to 1000 days) immediately. They will then get a 500 zen stipend each month for the lifetime of the game. Additional perks include ability to play as a Liberated Borg Human or Klingon.
  • They also get gold member benefits like expanded bank and inventory slots, character slots, respec tokens when they level up, and coming in May, playable Remans

VAT : Value Added Tax

Well yeah, but what I meant is that it's not a PayPal specific tax. I've had friends in the past have to deal with it who never used PayPal.

I actually have money set aside for a lifetime sale.

Little glass case. Has a vinyl Deputy Dawg wallet in it with some money set aside. Small sign saying "In case of lifetime sale, break glass."

Next to it is a small dustpan and brush in a glass case. Sign reads "In case of broken glass, break glass."
