Paypal Fees

I learned that I had a personal account. Paypal deducted a "paypal transaction fee" to the money sent to me by someone I invoiced. I already upgraded my account now to business account. Will paypal give/pay back the "paypal transaction fee" to me?

Sorry, no. Both personal and business accounts are charged PayPal fees to receive money for goods and services. That includes payment on invoices and money requests. You should not intentionally avoid fees. This makes fees expensive for everyone. And those who pay fees should not be subsidizing your transactions.

 

If a transaction is a personal payment, then sender is supposed to send it the right way to begin with. And if PayPal notices that you're using friends and family payments the wrong way, they could disable it.


Kudos & Solved are greatly appreciated. 🙂
