Paypal gift?

I sent a paypal gift today, it was £5, but it charged me £5.03. Last time I used it I don't think I got charged anything, but this was probably months or years ago.

So I removed my credit card I think it was and thought if I just have my bank account on file then perhaps it will use that and not charge me for using my card, but then it said it was going to send an echeque and it would take 7 days.

So I press the link my card button and put in my debit card and go through with another payment of £5 (just to see if anythings different) but this time it wants to charge me 40p.

Whats going on here?
Do all gift payments have a charge now unless the money is in your paypal account?


You must have funded the payment by debit or credit card rather than bank account.
