Two options now "Goods or services" OR "sending money to family or friends". So they might not charge for the 2nd option.
Who's going to be 1st to try Laughing

I used the 'Sending money to family or friends' option last night, and there was a small charge, but I didn't have any funds in my Paypal account so the amount came out of my linked bank balance. On a £6 payment they made a 40p charge - which I'm pretty sure that's how it worked previously as well? scratch

No gift now. As Omer says I tried also the 2 ways. Cost the sender in one and the other it cost the receiver. Shower of WAN****. The only thing its the safest way but you will pay now no matter what way you send it.

We have got away with it long enough and they where at fault for not clamping down on it long ago.
I suppose good things dont last forever

I've just sent a fellow member some wonga via Paypal and used the 'I'm sending money to family or friends' option. As I didn't have any funds in my PayPal account I was charged for the service, but I did get a chance to copy the following message before pressing 'send'...

I'm sending money to family or friends
You will be charged a £0.00 GBP fee if you use your PayPal balance and/or bank account to send money.
You will be charged a £1.56 GBP fee if you use your debit or credit card to send money.
These transactions are NOT covered by PayPal Buyer Protection.


Note the second line. According to them you shouldn't get charged if you have funds in your PayPal account or your bank account.

Don't understand that. Sent money yesterday to family and friends through my bank and I was still charged.

I know Jimmy - I cannot understand it either? scratch

All I can think of is that there is a difference between using a bank account and debit card, as it states...

You will be charged a £0.00 GBP fee if you use your PayPal balance and/or bank account to send money.
You will be charged a £1.56 GBP fee if you use your debit or credit card to send money.


I can understand why credit cards would incur a fee, however I have a debit card linked to my PayPal account. The bank account that the debit card is for is linked to the PayPal account via said debit card. But maybe there is another way to link a bank account to your PayPal account?...

...or am I being particularly thick? geek

No David probably me. My bank account is linked to paypal as is my credit card so as you say no fee should have been taken. It was not very much as I had to just send £15 but it would be enough if you were sending £300+ Evil or Very Mad
