Default Paypal fees? What?

Okay, I was just reading on paypal about paypal fees and such. Is it true that you can recieve money without paying a fee if it comes from a funded paypal account or bank account? Here is what I read:

"It's free within the U.S. to send money to family and friends when you use your PayPal balance or bank account and you send the money through the PayPal website."

Okay, that is how I interpeted it, but if that's the case a whole lot of people owe me some money....LOL! I rarely pay with a credit card...always bank account or funded paypal account. Sorry, I know I a couple of dollars isn't that much to some people, but when you do as much business as I do using paypal believe me that adds up......

I think it means its free to SEND money, not to receive it. At least I always pay a fee when I've RECEIVE money but not when I SEND money.

I'm pretty sure it depends on the type of account you have. I think mine is a business or premier account, and I get charged fees for every transaction. If it is just a personal account then I think you are right but I know I get charged a fee everytime,

okay, I think I've figured it out after more research:

If it is a personal transfer and it comes from a funded paypal account or bank account, then it's free

But if it is a purchase, then you have to pay

I pay fees for any incoming money as I have a business account. Even if you have funded I still pay fees.

Default Re: Paypal fees? What?

I had this very same issue just recently come up. A friend of mine told me "did you know that someone sent me a payment of $40 and sent it as a gift instead of goods and paypal didn't charge me any fees". So, I have some really regular customers and one in particular ordered $150 in items from me so I thought "I will try this out on her" (note: she is a very good customer and what I would consider a friend at least online. I wouldn't tell everyone this). So, to make a long story short I asked her if she could send the money to my paypal account and send it as a gift to me instead of me invoicing her. I explained the whole thing to her. Here's what I learned:

1) When you hit "send money" in paypal, it brings you up a form where you input the email address etc. What many of us don't realize is that at the bottom where we normally would select either goods, services or ebay (the purchase tab), there is actually another tab right next to that which says personal. Someone sending money as a gift would need to select the personal tab and then the gift option.

2) When you send as a gift it does not charge the receiver any fees IF that seller is using a funded paypal account (meaning there is money already in their account) or bank account (no debit cards or credit cards).

3) If the sender uses a credit card you will be charged the transaction fee.

4) There is no way for a seller to control how you send money to them. That means that if you are sending money to them and have been using the purchase tab instead of the gift tab then the person you have been sending money to has been charged a fee. The only way for you to avoid having to pay paypal fees (such as in transactions that occur on this board, trades etc.) is for you to send the money as a gift AND be sure to use either a funded paypal account or a bank account (again no credit cards or debit cards).

I hope that clears up any confusion. I think this will save us all a bunch of money if we can find a system to communicate this info to each other. I would suggest bumping this thread for the next week or so. That way when we do business with each other, we will all become very familiar with how to send money to each other the cheapest way possible so we all benefit and we don't sound money hungry or unprofessional lol!

Yes, and do you think you can get in trouble for sending something as a "gift" when it obviously isn't?? I can see that turning out really bad, especially when you are running a business and need to report your earnings.

Yes!!! Be very, very careful with this option. I just got duped in a group buy by someone I considered a friend. She was on several of my bow groups and chatted with me about bow making and kids for YEARS. Took my money & took a cruise. Never even placed the order. (No I didn't send it personal, but I was way to lax on the time that I allowed her and it went past the 45 days allowed to file a dispute).
