Hello! I received a payment for a service, but a fee was taken out of my money and I do not know why. There was no explanation, and I feel I have had that money stolen from me by PayPal with no consent on my part and no knowledge from the person who paid me the money as to why. If it was "Goods & Services" instead of "Friends & Family", shouldn't the fee have been placed on the sender, not the receiver? Can someone help me understand and hopefully get my money back?
If you are selling goods OR a service then you pay a fee.
Its against Paypal rules to sell and accept a friend / family payment and if you do so then you risk your Paypal account being suspended.
