    Paypal payment change

    Sending a payment today I noticed you now have two options for the money sent

    for services or goods, they pay the fees

    for friends or family, you pay the fees if using certain methods to pay for the items.

    I hadn't seen this posted yet, and I noticed this today I figured you guy might want to know the changes for when dealing with transactions here on the .org and elsewhere.

    It's been like that for me for several months now.

    However, I did notice a huge change in international shipping on ebay. US sellers can now ship their international packages to a US hub, and then ebay takes over. I don't fully understand all of the details, so I personally won't be doing this until I see how well it works.

    Black as the pit from pole to pole,
    I thank whatever gods may be
    For my unconquerable soul.

    It matters not how strait the gate,
    How charged with punishments the scroll,
    I am the master of my fate,
    I am the captain of my soul.

    Probably a slow roll over then, last week I had the ability to send as gift and all the other options still.

    So no equivalent of the "gift" option that results in no fee exists anymore? There is no way for me to send a friend or family member money from my bank account via Paypal and avoid fees being taken out some way, somehow?

    It is free if you use paypal balance or $0.45 if you use credit card.

    They're doing this to lessen the number of complaints, scams and refunds they have to do. Kinda sucks you get big fees if you don't put money into your PayPal balance, but them's the breaks I guess....

    It will charge you the fee if you your paypal is attached to a credit or debit card. It it's attached to a bank account and you do send money to friend or family it will waive the fee.

    Isn't that how the gift option worked in the first place?

    Yeah, it's called a card with cash or a check in it, which was done for decades upon decades before the invention of the PC and the internet, let alone paypal.
