The increase in cost is actually higher. Buyers will need to do Verification of ID (currently only required for Selkers) adding approx extra $80 per couple. Banks also have to pay PEXA fee for their part in the transaction (approx $40-50), meaning Buyers will pay extra $200-240 per transaction! Sellers will be $80 less as they already have to do ID.
