Even worse, I didn't pay the dealership through paypal

Not sure why you're so defensive of paypal bro; let alone why you're assumption is that any overseas seller MUST be screwing you over.

For your info, it was a PURCHASE, I have an invoice and it is references as such in paypal.
Secondly, as I said before, and as you acknowleged - the credit card charge is to pay pal. IF I had an issue, I would call my credit card and dispute it - and guess what, they'd reverse the charge and ask pay pal to prove the legitimacy of the charge. I'm confident I'd prevail - which is why I did the transaction the way I did it - and gee cowboy, my instincts must be ok because I have a frame, the seller got paid, no one got screwed and pay pal didn't **** me on fees.

But, you got any questions about the bike cowboy?
If you paid cash, they would never have made you pay a fee no matter what you called the transaction. If you paid by credit card, you did pay a fee. Done and done. The only reason you think you didn't pay a fee is because you didn't have to pay it to Deng-fu. If you look at your Pay Pal account, I bet you will see the fees.
