Am I the only one to just find out that PayPal payments do not attract FF points? Madder than mad that this has never ben highlighted anywhere. have lost a ton of points.
I thought it was the same as any normal spend with whatever credit card you chose to use.What is the pts earn structure with Paypal?

Amblerlower has got me worried though, so I will have to check my statements.
I've been using Paypal as a way of using Amex and hopefully getting 1.5 point per dollar for merchants who only offer Visa/MC/Paypal. By going through paypal it often allows you to use Amex when the retailer website wouldn't have. It doesn't always work though, sometimes it comes up with an error saying "this merchant does not accept Amex"
I just had an OCD check - pay my Telstra Bill with Amex via Paypal (no CC surcharge) and points appear on my Westpac Amex
AMEX does cost more to people receiving via paypal, they just don't know it cause they haven't read the fine print.
AMEX can be opted out of as an option by someone with a paypal account for receiving payments. Most don't know they can or why they should.
The biggest risk to someone not opting out of AMEX via paypal is when a payment is reversed, the commission is not. Then it a around .4% more in commission than visa.
Can you clarify which PayPal product you are referring to? The PayPal fees vary by country of issue of the credit card, but not by Card Issuer according to their Terms and Conditions. I have tried searching about how to opt out of a card type. I thought the concept of PayPal was that the seller does not now the specifics of the funding source?
