I brought a new to the sport person fishing and told him to get a day license on the web(http://tpwd.texas.gov/business/licenses/online_sales/) which should cost $11. However, the site adds a $5 processing fee which boosts the cost to $16! Why would TPWD think it's fair to charge 50% for processing? I can see a $1 for the convenience but $5??? Making it easy to get a license shouldn't be so expensive.

Its worth $10 or $20 not to have to stand in line at a store where the clerk more than likely doesn't know how to operate the machine. Especially the few days before dove season.

That's the profit for the vendor that runs the site, the fees are set, that's the add on

It's probably a $5 dollar charge regardless which license you get.
I always just go to a place that knows how to print off the license I need, which is my local feed store.

Amen,
I'm usually buying three licenses, plus some lotto chances at hunts, way easier; and it remembers info from year to year... In fact, if it's open I'll do it now.

I think it's stupid that those of us that have a life time license have to go to a store to get the license. There is no option to do it online. I'd gladly give $5 to not deal with Little Timmy from the toy department trying to figure out a hunting license.

You were willing to pay $1, but are upset over the extra $4.-------------- I"m trying to remember the last time I got upset over $4.00. Better yet,,, I"m trying to remember the last time I got upset that my friend had to pay an extra $4.00!!!!!

I'm glad you're wealthy, but many of us aren't. And if you look at it from a percentage point, a 45% surcharge is pretty steep for a 'processing' fee.

Do the math on this.... If you go online and get the FREE Sand Hill Crane Stamp, it costs $5.00 to process it.

Your percentage is?????????

I have been buying online for years & years.
It's worth every penny to me.
