receiving payment fee

Hello. I noticed that I am suddenly being charged a fee for receiving money. I have received money from a certain person before without a fee but now I am being charged. I also noticed that I am charged a fee with certain people, but not all people. I was wondering why certain people’s payments will charge a fee, and also why I am suddenly being charged?

Re: receiving payment fee

If you are a seller then you pay a fee, the only time you don't is if you are receiving a 'gift' ie friends / family payment when its free.

However its against Paypal rules to accept a family / friends payment for selling goods and can lead to your Paypal account being limited.


A buyer would not be able to open a Paypal dispute for 'non-receipt' OR 'not as described' as they would have no Paypal buyer protection.
However they can still open an 'unauthorised transaction' OR do a 'chargeback' (if they funded that Paypal payment via their credit card) and you would probably lose as you would have no Paypal seller protection because you accepted payment that way.
