Did PayPal just put a new fee in place or something?

9 replies
I just got a $240 payment from a client... Ended up becoming $230. I checked the details, and it said there was a $9.66 fee taken off. I have taken much bigger payments than this before, and do not recall any such fee. Am I missing something?

    Probably a credit card payment: 3.9% + 30c.

    You didnt miss anything. 3.9%+30 cents is common in terms of paypal fee while paying with credit card.

    Also, if the other payments were sent using mass pay, or sent as personal payments, then those fees wouldn't be there.

    If you ever need to calculate fees (in either direction), then I highly recommend the following PayPal calculator.

    (I am not associated with it in any way, just a handy tool I like to use)

    All the best,

    Credit card payments. Ask your client to pay using his PayPal balance or bank account next time.

      You mean the buyers? No, the buyer has paid the amount asked, but the vendor when setting the price hasn't factored in the CC charge.

      I don't believe the buyer in this case has had to pay anything extra.

      It also depends how you transfer money to someone else, not necessarily buying anything, if you want to transfer money to someone to help them out because they're in a financial pickle, send the money as a gift, paypal won't charge anything.
