    Withdrawing from DraftKings or Fanduel to PayPal, I have never had a fee taken out.

    My withdrawal from FantasyFeud to PayPal resulted in a 1% fee. The details showed it as a Non-U.S. Verified account.

    This is NOT a complaint as it does say any fees would be paid by you for withdrawing. Just a heads up. Not sure if going by check would be different or not.

    yeah, i sent them an email about this too. their response actually made sense (it had to do with all the fees they pay. etc etc)

    Did you notice the “leave a tip” or “Donate to help keep us afloat” button on the bottom right of the site? JK but i am sure it will show up on some site soon.

    Fued has always done this..do not get a check, you will end up with some significant fees on a Canadian check from most banks

    The 1% has always bugged me too, but when factored with all the overlay and reduced rake, it still beats the alternative. As far as checks, I never had bank fees, but it took forever to clear. It’s been a long time since I had a check from FF, but I think it took 90 days to clear because it’s international

    Put this way, yes. The withdrawal fee should be higher and rake should be lower. Let the successful player pay more of the operating costs. Agreed 100%.

    Hey Guys,

    Just thought I would comment on this thread.
    Since the day we opened the site we have been charging fees on withdrawals. It usually amounts to 1%. You can avoid these fees by requesting a chq. I can’t speak to clearing for Intl cheques as each bank has different guidelines.
    Every once in a while Paypal waives the fee and this seems to be based on the type of account the user has. As a company we have always thought it be best to make everything transparent. We have no rules about withdrawing. The money is yours. Some players withdraw every single day. We get hit with a fee when the money comes in.
    We decided to let the player take on the fee when it comes out. As a Canadian company we also deal with a whole bunch of foreign exchange with respect to moving money and paypal. We talked about changing our withdrawing policy and passing the fees on in other fashions like other companies do to offset but elected against this as we wanted everything to be transparent.
    Every site has perks. We are pretty confident with the amount of bonuses we pass on to the players, the overlay situation currently and the fact that the bonus you earn never expires that this was one thing we weren’t going to do.
    With that said this is something that is going to be tabled again with new ownership for NFL season but have no inclination as to whether the policy will change for NFL season.
    Hope this helps clarify.

    90 days? Oh my….

    I have Chase (in California) and I’ve deposited a couple checks from FantasyFeud lately. No fees, and the checks clearly as quickly as any other check. Obviously your bank (and possibly state) may be different.

    @Justin The only issue I have with the Paypal fees is that the 1% isn’t noted on the withdraw page. Although I’m sure it’s somewhere else on the site. The first time I withdrew to Paypal I was a bit miffed because I felt like I didn’t have all the information to decide whether I’d prefer Paypal with the fee or waiting for a check.

    But, this is just a minor issue on a really fantastic site.
