Re: Charged with massive deposit fees

I got charged approx $30 for a 1k deposit as well, at the very least there should be some sort of disclaimer before depositing explaining that some banks charge fees.

Lol They go away from paypal and give no warning of this. The people that defend global no matter what need to be checked as employees that work for them. It is insane what global is doing to you guys lol.

Very lame going to have to apply for a travel rewards card to avoid this fee. The fact that WP is apparently based in Akron made me think there would not be foreign fees. Still better than Ignition though.

OP - if you want to email support with a screenshot showing the fees and notes they can look at it for you but we do not charge any fees and I am not sure how you would amass such a number.

Thanks
Joey, have you gotten an update on the fees being charged for deposits?

There are no fees charged by Global Poker for players making purchases or cashouts.

From what I can see in this thread, it appears some banks do xharge fees whilst others don't. Not my place to give banking advice but if it were me this would certainly be a factor when choosing my bank.

How about lower the rake, fix your software, improve customer support/communications to offset the fees that will surely drive away recreational players

Foreign transaction fees are commonplace with credit cards in the US. Really something the decision makers should have been aware of before making this partnership with WP.

I assume there's no chance of paypal being restored (which is clearly the best case scenario for your customers if it could be, sadly). Is there a way to structure the purchases so they are domestic instead of foreign? Either through WP, or partnering with a US processor?

Adding my +1 to the idea of PayPal coming back. Not holding my breath, but still would love to see it.

Get a credit card with no foreign transaction fees, problem solved.

Awfully strange for an American legal and approved site to process payments offshore. Defeats entire purpose...

Realistically, Fee's charged indirectly by GP because of the loss of PayPal. Why are player's deposits showing as a foreign transaction and not US based is the question....

If they get charged a foreign transaction fee because of the PayPal ordeal, GP should be taking the hit not the customers.

If this is happening a lot, you're going to see many FB rec players say goodbye.

Re: Charged with massive deposit fees

Dang those fees suck. I think as a one time exception it would be nice to see GP step up and covers some of that fee for you or offer you a ticket into one of their higher entry games. If GP doesn't already they need some sort of disclaimer stating that a users CC may charge fees for the transaction at purchase time.

But over-all It's not GP responsibility to know what charges YOUR credit card is going to charge you for the transactions you do. So to expect them to cover these fees is a little unreasonable. They are not responsible regardless of what processor they used in the past and are not indirectly or directly responsible for such fees.

I doubt it. There aren't too many services people pay for with regularity that they'd cancel over a 3% cost increase, especially when it should be reasonably easy to find a no fee card.

Re: Charged with massive deposit fees

It is common for there to be international transaction fees charged separately after the original transaction posts. The freeze will vary depending on the card issuing bank.

It's been like this for years for any international purchases.
