when does Paypal charge fees?? (credit card vs. bank account)

Recommended Posts

It depends on what type of account the seller (accepter of payment) has.

You can basically have two different types of accounts with Paypal:


1. Accepts payments from account transfers only. No fees are charged to the seller for accepting a payment

2. Accepts payments from credit cards as well as account transfers. Fees are charged to the seller for *every* payment received.


Some people get around this by having different Paypal accounts to accept different types of payments. But I think you'd have to have different email addresses, and maybe even different bank account/user name/etc. I'm not completely sure what is required to do this.


But Paypal doesn't charge the buyer/payment sender for sending any type of payment.
