    Confused about payment received on eBay/PayPal

    Ok I had a listing on eBay (Buy it now) and it was a quantity of 10 of a set of tickets, and someone bought all 10 for £60, and paid. I then got a straight £60 into my PayPal account. Of course I had eBay fees to minus from my account, but my question...how come I didn't get charged a 3.4% PayPal fee?

    lol i got charged sending money to someone but that wasnt for ebay item. im sure someone will clear it up.

    i think if he has money already in his paypal account you dont get charged its when payppal have to withdraw from his bank account/credit card

    They paid by paypal gift by mistake?

    EDIT: I'm not sure if ^^^ is possible for ebay purchase though.

    Never heard of this before, make sure it has a confirmed address to send it to and you have your seller protection, if you do then that's great, they charge too much for what they offer ('they' being eBay and paypal).

    Wait I went into transaction details and it shows this:

    Total Amount:
    £60.00 GBP
    Fee amount:
    -£2.24 GBP
    Net amount:
    £57.76 GBP

    So why does it say my balance is £60 should it not say £57.76

    try withdrawing £60?

    it does. 'net' s the final sum....

    My bad how could I forget net is after transaction fees are deducted, that's fine. But why does my available balance not show as what it should

    dont you get billed at the end of the month or something...so you will have all the funds but theyll bill you for the 2.24 or watever and take it from your paypal(balance or account) on a certain date

    Paypal take money the time of transaction not later. eBay fees are paid monthly.

    Can't explain why your balance says £60 unless you had money in there beforehand

    Okay okay, It was me I dropped £2.24 into your account when you wasn't looking, I was going to suprise you but seeing as though you have discovered it I think its out.
