Well, I guess none of us like Paypal - but for most it is a necessary (but useful) evil.

Do they have different financial rules in Germany that makes it unpopular?

Yes I gues it is because all banktransfers from EU country to EU country are free. It is also quite irritating we have to pay to tranfer to the UK. So I guess germans don't use much paypal because bank transfer is most of the time free, only takes a little longer. I have paypal (ok I'm dutch) but I also buy and sell from and to UK and USA

Maybe beacause Denmark hansn't joined the EU with EMU III (or II, I dont know but that's why they dont have the Euro yet.

I think whatever it is they shoot themselves in the foot. Better to swallow the 4% and open yourself up to a bigger market.
