Re: What I want
Yes, it's always the sender who pays. Now, the receiver may be subject to currency conversion fees, but that's true with practically any currency conversion. It's how they maintain operations.
As for the receiver paying for shipping, isn't that why S&H is added to most bills when placing an order, so the receiver pays for the package due, just before it even gets sent out? Plus I think COD is still possible in certain situations.
In some countries cell phone minutes are assessed sending OR receiving, and if the other end's a cell phone that applies to him/her, too, because each user is employing the network: direction doesn't make a difference.
So why can't the Internet be charged both ways. Both ends are using the Internet are they not, which means making use of physical infrastructure that means someone else can't use it?
