Long story short it was a giant PIA for him and they said he couldn't do it again. Something we will have to figure out.
Why not just calculate the PayPal fee and we'll add to the price? It's fairly minimal and would avoid the disruption/hardships.

I don't know what the fee is but if its minimal like you say then I'm all for grossing up the payments by the fee. The grain will still still be far cheaper than buying it at the HBS.

Just took a look at the PayPal website, the fees to the seller are 2.9% + $.30 per transaction. I think Dand ran into problems by sending invoices from PP, that made it look to them like he was a vendor selling stuff and they wanted their cut. I don't mind paying the transaction fees ($3.30 on $100 worth of grain), of course if we don't have to pay them... If the invoices were made up on Excel and emailed out, then the money was transferred as a personal payment I wonder if that would flag the PP system to investigate the recipient? Sudden transfers of large amounts from 20 - 30 people might alert their system.

I looked at another group, the York - Lancaster group, they didn't use PayPal. Everyone sent checks to the buyer and the order was placed once the checks were in hand, as long as everyone gets their check in the mail as soon as they get a final price this would work. Looks like it went well for the York group. All it takes is for one person to drag their feet and the order doesn't get placed, but that could happen with PayPal transfers as well.

Or we give everyone 10 days or something to get their checks in and whoever misses the deadline is out. Maybe a little longer than 10 days but a reasonable amount of time so that feet dragging doesn't happen. Just a thought.

I got a hold of the country malt folks and will get them the application info back today. I also have the price list. Checks are fine by me, as is PayPal. Let's assume check payment for now, and we can do PayPal (if viable) for folks who don't mind the extra fee.

Do they still require you to have a business in order to set up the account?
