Can you help me


Why am I being charged for transactions and not others? They are all US transactions.

Its down to how the payment was SENT to your account.

1. If they sent using money > goods / services option then paypal would see you as a seller and apply the new seller hold. They would also charge you a fee.

2. If they had sent using the send money > family / friends option then you would have had the payment instantly with no fee. 

Also its against paypal rules to use option 2 for selling, you would have 0 paypal seller protection and risk your account being limited.
