hi friends, Please help me with a doubt regarding paypal transaction . I LIVE IN INDIA. My doubt is : -------------- When I receive a payment from a site ( for example a site named 'X' and amount is 1$ ), this amount is reflected in my paypal account as it is , and full amount is received. when my friend ( lives in india) receives same amount from the same site "X", the paypal takes fees ans give back the remaining amount. Why is it so? But in some sites , when i receive a payment ( say 1$ ), the paypal takes out some fees and issues me the remaining, why is it so? In all transaction, where the " Order status/Actions " coloum shows " issue refund " button, the paypal takes out some fees. So please help me , the actual logic behind this. And also explain me the concept of " issue refund " , and tell me why the paypal takes fees only in this " issue refund case" . What we can do to avoid the fees being taken by paypal.? Please help me it is urgent for me THANKS IN ADVANCE.

Hello the fee charged by Paypal depends upon a number of factors. 1)It depends on your account type.Personal accounts won't have any fee while premier and business accounts have a fee of around 0.30$+3.90% 2)Mass pay.Members of certain countries can you the mass pay feature.In this case when the sender has to send large number of payments he'll pay a small fee to paypal and in turn the receivers don't have to pay the fee. 3)If the sender uses his credit card to make payments then the receiver will have a fee no matter what account he has. 4)Regarding the "Refund case" you can send back the cash to the sender by pressing that button and it appears on all payments that you receive personally.

It is very simple. Sites that are in your own country can send payments without fees. However if you make money on a site that is not from your own country then they will usually take some sort of fee to pay for the sending it to another country. It is also up to the individual sites as well, if they choose to charge a fee for sending the cash then they will. This is not really pay pals fault or anything like that, I imagine that they do charge places to send money to other countries.

To remove most of your confusion, please read the long and detail explanation about Paypal Fees Policy here: https://cms.paypal.com/no/cgi-bin/marketingweb?cmd=_render-content&content_ID=ua/FeesPolicy_full&locale.x=no_NO Or as a summary, you can see Paypal Fee Structure here: https://www.paypal.com/al/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_display-fees-outside If the sender marks the payment as Online Purchases, you will be charged some fees. If the sender marks the payment as Personal Payment and the payment comes from credit card, either you or the sender will be charged some fees. The sender decides. If the sender marks the payment as Personal Payment and the payment comes from Paypal balance, there would be no fees. For the rest, please just read explanation at links above.

Well ! I seen Some site already deduct the fee as per region wise and when you receive the payment paypal never charge any thing like payment received from clixsense. Now the second one if any site which process your payment through paypal, than paypal may charge 3% processing fees for receiving the fund and when they transfer the fund in your bank account they also charge 3% fee. While whenever you received some fund from site some time you have to confirm to complete the transaction so it is show issue refund option on that transaction..

Your problem seems amazing that you are not being charged any fees while your friend is being charged for the same amount from that same company. Does your friend resides in your same locality or abroad? Anyway, I can assure you that PayPal is 100% genuine and secured company and they are very very helpful regarding any issue. So, it is always better to ask PayPal directly rather than taking any suggestion or advice from me. They may take more than one day to reply your answer if they are busy. Otherwise you will get your answer soon from them. So, do contact them at the earliest. Hope your worry will be solved soon. Have a good day.
