Paypal Gift Option - Change Of Format

Recommended Posts

Sent a paypal gift payment last night, and sent another this morning.

 

I notice the format has changed overnight, no longer called a gift as such, but asks if you are buying goods, or sending money to friends or family.

 

The latter now carries a 55p charge if from balance funds, or £4.99 if from CC or DC.....and highlights you are not covered by paypal protection if you choose the friends & family option......

i just sent a family and friends payment and didnt get charged although it came straight out of paypal balance..if it came out of a credit card then theres a small fee involved. but that was always the case

Still no charge if you use paypal balance or bank account, but is for using debit card which didn't used to be the case, always was for credit card.

Think you'll find it depends on amount you are sending and for some bizzarre reason it seems to charge more for Hotmail address....well it did for the one I was sending to?

I know it used to charge for CC, but from balance payments is was usually free most the time.... Seems to be free on lower amounts so maybe if £100 or more?

Just to satisfy my curiosity I tried it again and it levvys the charge on the hotmail address I was sending to, but not to another different hotmail address?

 

This was from a balance, not a CC or DC.

 

How bizzarre is that?

 

...and no, it wasn't a Cyprus Paypal Account that the Hotmail addy was linked to ;o)
