Are there fees or service charges when donating by PayPal?
The temple pays PayPal fees to ensure the donor is credited for the full donation. PayPal charges 2.2+% plus $0.30 for each transaction. For example, for a $100 donation, the temple receives from PayPal $97.50, but PABT will credit the donor for the full $100 donation. In the future, should you decide to donate by check or cash, the temple can avoid paying this fee. Thank you for your support.
