Like many of my colleagues on this site, I have been wondering why oh why TES really needs to charge a 30p transaction fee on resources under £3. In general that transaction fee is charged by retailers for a credit card transaction and is charged to the buyer. Since 2013 other types of transaction fees are not permitted by law. However TES seem to be charging this regardless of whether buyers use a credit card or their TES credit. Additionally this transaction fee is also automatically charged on all sales of new sellers until we have reached Bronze author level. I am relatively new to selling resources online and I often feel that this transaction fee is stinging my colleagues and me who would like to make our resources available at a more reasonable price than £3, yet cannot do so unless we are 'happy' to incur a 30p transaction fee. Personally I would rather sell one resource 10 times at let's say £1.80 than once or twice at £3 in the same period. So here is my question to TES. Will you abolish this transaction fee once the new law comes into force in January 2018 or will you find a way to continue to justify it or worse even, disguise it by ways of changing royalty-levels?
