Pay Pal fees on donations and gifts

Just a word of warning to everyone using PayPal. Regardless of what type of account you have, personal or business, if you send money to someone as a donation or as a “prize”, you should send it using the friends / family button for personal or gift. If you send it using the goods or services, the person receiving the money will have the PayPal fees deducted.

So if you send a gift or donation to anyone, like a birthday, graduation, charity, or football prize, remember to use the friends / family button and mark it as a gift.

Thanks Stephen. I have been using PayPal for over 10 years, and wasn’t aware of this. Is it something new, or been around and just discovered by you?

Thanks for the information, I use paypal all the time and did not know this
