Why was I charged a fee?

Someone sent me money but Paypal took a fee out before I was to collect the money.  I have had people send me money before and I was not charged a fee, I am wondering why I was charged a fee this time.

Hi Katj7
There are a few possible reasons - not sure if this was an international payment, for a purchase or using a credit/debit card. There is some further information on the Help Centre that might be of use:
Hope this helps!
