    Paypal Gift Payment

    i have no funds in my paypal account, if i was to use the paypal gift method,.. would they charge me the payment fee?

    could i avoid this fee by uploading cash from bank into my paypal account first,... then make a payment?

    i do try to do bank transfer whenever possible, you can save so much money by avoiding paypal and ebay

    when i dont have any money in my pp account i pay as normal and it transfers it over from my bank account and pays straight away.

    just found this on their website:

    "For personal payments, choosing to pay by credit or debit card will incur a fee."

    "It's free when you use your PayPal balance or your bank account linked to your PayPal account."

    ... looks like i will need to register my bank account instead of my debit card.

    i started to set up the link with my bank account back in early 2008, they deposited 2 amounts into my bank, but i never finished the process.

    it is still asking me for these amounts, so going to phone my bank on monday and check my statements.
