I use Paypal all the time for my biz, my rates haven't changed.
Actually I get better deals the more I use them. I requested and got a Debit card that pulls directly from my Paypal account and use it all the time. I Now get a dividend from them every month.

I've been using PP for at least a decade and I couldn't perform nearly as well without it. Money goes into my PP account and I spend it with my PP debit card.

OTOH, if you're going to be spending a big chunk of $$$$, try Chicago BMW. They actually stock the more expensive and hard to get parts (Like Nikasil barrel sets and 336 cams!), they discount 10% off of list and delivery can be pretty quick. Especially if you're a regular customer and you ask nicely but I've never waited more than 10 days. Man, that 10% really adds up!

The last time I called Hucky's (From the W. Coast.) it was 30 minutes after 5:00 PM and his wife bitched me out for bothering her after closing. If the phone ringing with people trying to spend money bothers her that much, maybe she should simply unplug her hearing aid! Anyway... I doubt after that, that they'll be getting any more of my hard earned $$$!

I bought a few thousand dollars worth of stuff from Hucky before we had a falling out over some non OEM stuff he sold . I thought about letting bygones be bygones and checked his prices the other day, for the job I have in here now and he is about 10 percent higher than my local dealer. Add to that the grief involved paying for the parts, I don't get it. He must be trying to retire or something ?? Did he win the lottery?
Moto Bins has been my favorite for some big ticket stuff, but last week I saw the pound had gone up on the dollar. Not as attractive as they were.

Not really. I just made my first "No PayPal" order with him and it only took a couple days extra. Paypal was convenient, but on a scale of 1-10, the loss of Paypal barely bumps a 2.

Thats one of the things I like most about Hans. He checks the email, he tells me whats in stock and verifies the price, he puts it in the box and he ships. I kind of like that. Seems like the less people involved the less margin for error. Maybe thats just MY perception. Time is everything for me. I ride because I love to but also for necessity, so being down costs me and my family money...
