As do credit card companies. It's why I don't use plastic when I patronize my local businesses and restaurants, even for some sizable purchases. CC companies also present a lot of practical problems to someone just trying to gather a few bucks on the web. Small businesses? They put a floor on the amount you can spend with a piece of plastic because of those "awesome" CC company swipe fees.
Make no mistake - magic plastic cards carry a tax, it's just that the customer usually doesn't pay it.
If you feel strongly about the leeching PP will do wrt your Calibre donation, do what I do every time I use PP and kick in a small percentage over and above. Making the payee jump through even more hoops to get paid doesn't do them any favors.
