I recently started getting charged a fee when someone sends me a payment as a gift. The sender doesn't get charged anything but I am being charged 3%..... any one else ever have this issue?

EDIT: I only get charged the fees when a certain person sends the money.. I have received a gift from a few other people in the past week and no fees were charged.

When a "Gift" is sent the fee, $0.30 + 2.9%, is charged to the sender. The sender then has no recourse if he actually paid for goods. He can not Dispute the transaction.

Of course sending funds as a "Gift" when actually paying for "Goods" is against PayPal Policy. Something I will not do.

This hobby is WAY too expensive!!

The money was sent to me from a good friend who was paying me back from some past expenses.

Check and see if he is "verified". If not then they might be charging you the fees instead.

I spoke to my friend after he sent the payment. It was funded from his checking account.

Exactly! And that saved my butt last month when there was a scam on here for a charger that about 4 of us sent money for. They guy offered me a lower price for a "gift" but I sent the full amount and just got my refund because of the scam. Had I sent via a "gift", I would just have ben S.O.L.

Never will send it that way and dont even give an add a second look that wants +3% for paypal fees. Price it with the fees and forget it. Stores do not charge you for using a CC or that type of transaction, they just know it is part of doing business. You want the instant money and protection that PP has to offer, it costs money.

Fly it like you stole it!

I don't know.. in some ways I would rather have the fees spelled out. Like your investments... do you want to see the fees or do you want them to just show you your balance?

Same with credit cards. A lot of people don't realize just how much money these CC people are taking from everybody. If it was detailed in the receipt (like taxes are) you would be more aware.
ebay doesn't allow you to add "fees" to your listing. Why not? Because they don't want it to be continually broadcasted.

And speaking of ebay... it's become a buyers friend bigtime. No protection for the seller and costs are higher than ever for the seller. I noticed I get a lot less results these days when searching ebay. It's turning into a retail site for stores.

I totally agree, E-bay is a buyers dream and a sellers nightmare. As a seller you have absolutely no rights. This along with all the fees attached is why ebay is no longer the place to turn to sell merchandise.

One mile of road will take you one mile. One mile of runway will take you anywhere in the world.
