@Liberapay won't this new system increase the transfert fees since you'll have a 1-1 relation between transferts and donations?

@Ninjatrappeur In some cases the new system can result in higher fees than the old one, yes. However Liberapay is still designed to avoid high fee percentages, so the average should be below 5%. Also, recipients outside Europe may actually get lower fees than with Mangopay.

@Liberapay Did you drop the whole wallet system for technical reasons or was it a deliberate choice?

To me, it looked like a good idea.

@Ninjatrappeur Wallets are a legal nightmare, they're so similar to bank accounts that in the EU only licensed payment institutions are allowed to provide them. We could have tried to migrate from Mangopay to another European e-wallet provider, but that basically meant abandoning our non-European users.
