Hi I just bought a game for $4.95 and saw the only option was paypal.
That's great for taking and and all international transactions...
But since I'm in the USA I was able to pay via Dwolla which has 0 transaction fees on payments under $10, and only 25cents above.

I run a small business so I'm sensitive to paypal/credit card fees and don't particularly like knowing they are getting a slice when I'm paying for something, when cheaper alternatives exist.
In this case, Paypal probably took ~2.9% + 30cents of 4.95 = 44cents with is nearly 9% of the entire payment. Ouch!

I doubt if this is likely to happen anytime soon... According to Wikipedia, Dwolla has only 20,000 accounts, while Paypal has 100,000,000+ accounts. So, the game developers are naturally going to go with the obviously more popular method rather then try and appeal to a market of only 20,000.

Even if used as a second option to Paypal, it probably wouldn't generate enough money to even be worth it to the developer to include it.

Also, this has absolutely nothing to do with "News, Feedback and Suggestions" for Armor Games.
