Yes you need to pay fees if the money is not paid from the paypal account i.e. money taken from credit card.
No fees apply if you pay someone (pp gift) using money from paypal account.

It will charge fees if you don't have funds in your Paypal account :)
#5

No it doesn't. Only CC.

I do it all the time.

Refund the payment and ask for paypal gift.

You wouldn't be charged for receiving gift.

Though I have never had a cc attached to paypal. That would be suicide.

Would advise agains't ever having your credit card on. Unless its got some awesome protection on it.

Though a debit card isn't much better.

Oh, it's always charged me when paying with my debit card, I best look into that!:thumbsup:
#21
you can send from your bank account or paypal balance for fee less paypal gift, if they need to take from your debit card, it charges you

I can't see it making a difference. But mines the same card from Natwest.

Thought about giving them a call, might be able to explain why.

Just saying you were giving gift payment to a friend for there birthday yada yada.:thumbsup:
#33
what i gather, paypal charge for card transactions as it costs them, you bank payment is via direct debit, and that costs them nothing.

I have never used a debit card with paypal for gift as its easier to use the bank account

So how come I don't katie?

The only other thing I can think of is mine is set up to my bank account rather then specific to the card.

I had to take two small amounts off me account to verify.

What are the fees for receiving money?
Receiving a personal payment (e.g. a gift from family) is free if the sender uses their PayPal balance or their bank as a funding source. If they use a credit or debit card there will be a small fee. The sender can decide to pay this or pass it on to you.
If you are receiving a business payment (e.g. when selling items on eBay) then you will be charged a fee. For more information on fees, go to the ‘Fees’ link at the bottom of any PayPal page.
How long does it take to receive money?

it asppears its cc and debit card, not sure how this works as i thought to have your bank account linked it was done via debit card

That's using your bank account directly & not from debit card.

So that's the way round it - using the bank account as the direct source.

Sussed - I'll get it all confirmed again :thumbsup:

Thanks you two :)

no they link to your bank account directly, wqhen you get a paypal account you need to verify your bank account, when you do this, you sign up for a direct debit that they can take the money from your account when you use paypal. When you send gift it always asks your what source you want to use, and mine is set up as paypal balance then bank account

ok it appears if you add a bank account rather than a dc or cc you are not charged, i thought dc was free too, but obviously not, so my appologies for giving out wrong information
