Receiving money

My boyfriend sent me his portion of his rent money but I was charged a fee? I checked up the policy and saw there’s no fee if it’s a paypal to another

Re: Receiving money



If he sent if using the friends / family option there is a fee to 'send' money as a personal (friends / family) payment using a debit card or credit card.

Its only free to send if he funds it from his bank account.


If he sent it using the goods / services option (which it sounds as if he has done), then you would pay a fee as Paypal would view you as a seller.
