    Paypal gift, Neither of you pay any fee's

    Click on send money and GIFT is under the personal tab

    paypal gift

    unless its financed through a credit card, then the sender pays the fees.

    paypal gift provided she has the money in her paypal balance

    as above log into paypal and change the heading to personal i think it is and click on gift option. no fees either way.

    only no fees if the sender has a paypal balance - fee to be added for transfer from CC or bank acc

    that's weird - i must have missed that and the fee must be just if you use a credit card. You learn something every day! :-D

    If you don't have direct debit set up with paypal and you don't have a balance, then the answer is no, your girlfriend would have to pay a fee to send you the gift, or she sends it normal and you pay the fee to receive it.

    She's with Yorkshire Bank and owes me a few quid from over Xmas, shopping and stuff. She's got a ReadyCash current account with them but the staff that work at her local branch are a bunch of incompetent idiots.

    Sometimes she's managed to go into the branch and transfer money into my bank without any difficulties but other times they've put obstacles in her way such as claiming there's a £24 fee for transfers or insisting that she can only do it by setting up a standing order and transferring the same amount every week.

    I've told her that the £24 fee would most likely only be for same day transfers and a sensible member of staff also confirmed this once and stated that whoever told her this in the past mustn't know their job properly but whenever she goes in she seems to end up seeing some idiot.

    She also cancelled one of her DD's the other week and the bank stupidly cancelled the wrong one and she ended up being sent debt letters from United Utilities because of it. The list goes on!

    To save all the hassle and messing around I just thought it might be easier to set her up on PayPal and transfer the money that way instead. As long as neither of have to pay any fees that is!

    Get internet banking, then she can do her own transfers, set up her own standing orders, and cancel her own direct debits, simples:thumbsup:

    Good idea, why didn't I think of that!

    Use Cash?



    She does do that sometimes but she owes me other money for a cooker we went halves on which is still to come so ideally I'd prefer to cut down on the amount of cash floating around the house.

    Considering the mess their boss's got us into last year, what do you expect from counter staff:whistling:

    Get internet banking as said above, or if she is finding the bank, and their local staff that useless why doesn't she change to someone else?
