“The PayPal card is issued by a bank, not PayPal itself.”
And the bank ain’t doing the PayPal card for free. I’m guessing there’s a fee associated with the use of that card. The guy’s probably looking at giving up 1% to 3% for each transaction. Surely there are banks out there that will cash US govt checks without a service fee?
Yep. You can start with a $4.95 monthly fee and $.50 if you simply check your balance at an ATM.
