    Earlier I used to receive the $1 without any fees, as 1.00 USD. But since 21 Jun, I have been receiving it as 0.67 USD (1.00 USD - 0.33 USD as fee). :confused:
    So, I have 3 payment with 0.67 USD instead of 1.00 USD. (which results in a net loss of 1.00 USD as fees :( )

    This was not happening earlier. Has PayPal changed it's rules ?
    Is this happening to me only, or others too ??
    (nimesh and xpi0t0s, please answer)

    Can anyone explain me, why the fees are not charged till 17 June and why are they charged since 21 June ?????

    For Personal Account there is not fees but for business account there is a fees.

    Also if you transfer as Personal Payment fees is limited and if you transfer as Business its fees are high. I always tend to make a personal payment.

    @ shabbir:
    Are you sure of sending them as "Personal" and not as "Purchase" ??
    Or, may be you sent the money not from your PayPal balance, but from bank acc or PayPal Credit. See below :

    The fees charged, are as per the rates mentioned above, so may be you transferred them as purchase.

    I got 2 payments, the first a Payment From for $1 with no fees, and the second a Gift From with a fee of $0.01. I don't know if the fee is due to currency conversion, the payment type, other fees or whatever.

    @Saswat, Payment is always in the form of Personal but I am not quite sure if I have missed on some occasion. I try to take the effort of selecting personal.

    Also if you have some fees you can issue a refund and I would do the repay. Make sure its a refund and not a payment.

    $3 paid and I think you should have waited at least 24 hours before asking.

    Yes, I was also charged $0.33 as fees.
    Since it happened for the first time I was not sure why was I charged.

    Thanks Shabbir for clarifying.
    I'll also go for the refund :)
