    Paypal Question

    Hello

    just a quick q.

    If I want to send some money via paypal,whats the cheapest way without being charged. Ive orderd some books from a friend and I was going to bank transfer the money but my bank are charging me £9!

    If I transfer the money via paypal gift, does the receiver have to pay a charge to paypal or something?

    Basically,want to pay him the money for the books without getting charged.

    Thanks for any help!

    If you paypal the money as Gift from your debit card then you can pay the fee.

    Who do you bank with?? BT are free virtually everywhere

    If you have the funds already in your paypal then sending a gift payment is free.......also if you do it straight from your bank account via gift.

    has it changed, you used to get fees on cross border transactions, even if paying by gift?
