PayPal fees?

    Hey People,

    I remeber when paying someone via PayPal gift no fee would incur, however I have just tried paying someone via PP gift and it is charging me? When I uncheck the box it then states the recipient will pay the fee?

    Is this right? or is there any other wat I can send money without these fees in PayPal?



    I think you have to have the funds in your paypal account but i could be wrong

    You need to have your account linked to your bank account not your card. They charge when pulling it off any type of card.

    Thanks people!

    But when it is linked to my bank account it processes it as an e-cheque? The account is not a business account.

    I have removed the credit/debit cards and have the bank account linked but it states wait 5-7 days? The bank account is also confirmed?


    You need to have your bank account linked and a debit card to avoid paying fees if you haven;t got any funds in paypal. They will take the funds directly from your bank, but if anything goes wrong they use the debit card as a backup. Credit cards always incur fees as the card issuers charge a fortune

    IIRC If you are sending it as a gift its free if you already have money in yoru Paypal account, if you need to fund it any other way you will pay the fees
