Dear Reader,

We do whatever we can to assist our contributors, distributors, advertisers and of course our readers.

In the past year we have added pages, stories, colour and increased the circulation to a minimum of 2,700 printed copies – which is very likely to increase again. We also publish online to boost it further. We believe we have made the Exmoor News a smashing community magazine serving southern Exmoor. We have received nothing but nice comments and constructive criticism about how the magazine has changed and what we can think about for the future. We are always open to new ideas and keep an open mind. One such idea was to accept PayPal payments to make our advertisers life a bit easier, saves cheques, logging on to bank websites or dashing round with cash.

Now, having blown our own trumpet (even tho I don’t think we need to) we can’t please everyone. So…

… We have just been told to clarify why we charge a fee for taking a payment by PayPal (we take cheques, bacs and of course cash and recently added PayPal. We don’t take credit cards.)

Here goes…. if you have the will to spend half a day of your life checking why click on  this link:-

Suffice to say, if you value your time, take it from us, PayPal charge a nominal fee (appx 3%) for each transaction which we unfortunately for you dear reader, need to pass on. We are very sorry but we must do what must be done according to PayPal.

If the PayPal charge is not to your liking (and we are not so keen on it either but understand why it’s done) then resort to cheque, cash or, of course, bacs.

Best Regards, Claire
