PayPal Help??
14 Apr 2008
Hi again
I am selling on Ebay & using PayPal.
I had heard that PayPal is free if you receive funds from another PayPal account.
But PayPal always charges me for receiving funds?
Why is that so?/

PS - Guess I have a lot of questions in my head & will pose them to experts one at a time.
Thanks all of you and I am really relieved to get answers

Welcome to the forum. Paypal would charge you a fee when someone pays you using a credit card , if they transfer funds which are already in theire paypal account then you do not get charge . This also varies when you have a personal account and a premier account or buisness account.

Whether you have a Personal or Premier/Business account is key.

Here is the full fee breakdown:

To summarize:

Personal account holders can receive funds from PayPal Balance, PayPal Instant Transfer or PayPal eCheck for free but pay high fees for Credit and Debit card payments.

Premier/Business account holders pay for receiving funds from any source, but the fees for Credit and Debit card payments are lower than Personal accounts.
