Most sellers will offer the option of payment sent as a "gift" or the buyer covers the 4% PayPal fees.
For those that don't know, if the payment is sent as a "gift", there is no PP fee attached to it, but the flipside is, there is little to no recourse if the seller isn't legit or the item is damaged/broken or flat out doesn't show up.
When in doubt, as a buyer, follow your gut instinct.
I myself let people make the choice themselves, either gift the payment or cover the fees, makes no difference to me.
