Paypal charged me around 30% fee

Hi. This is my first time using paypal to receive transaction.

 
I just want to understand how paypal charges transaction. it says 2.9% + $0.30 but what they took is 30%


As a test my friend sent me 1 euro and its equivalent to 56.62 to my currency and paypal charges 17.49.

 

After that, he sent me 5 euro which is equivalent to 283.11 and paypal charges 27.46

can someone help me how does it works? as paypal is charging random percentage of the transaction amount.

 

Thanks in advance.
