Yesterday I got one Paypal Personal Payment which never had any fees but I was charged fees same as my business account and so was surprised as to why I was charged and looked at the status of the account and found that now Personal accounts are also charged a 2.9% fee + 30 cents to receive payments that was previously free. No formal announcement about the change was made and here is what Manager speaks on this
