    Question about paypal funding fees for personal payments

    Hi,
    Just a stupid question, but I find no convincing response on paypal website.

    If I want to send money to someone, but have a nil balance on my paypal account (never happened before, I used to only spend money I received): can I fund it by debit card, and what are the fees involved?
    Is it free if I make the transfer as a gift?

    Thanks for your help,
    Nicolas
