Does paypal still charge 3%, or have they increased the fees ???
They have always charged the foreign currency transaction fee, everytime we have bought anything from the States with paypal we have been slugged with a fee on the exchange.In addition to the regular fee paypal now charges a foreign currency transaction fee.
If they can gouge you, they will.
Because then you have no recourse should things go bad, it was a gift with no obligation on the other persons part.There is a ''Personal'' option that you should be able to send it as a gift which there is no fees taken out. I dont know why guys charge the 3% when it can be done this way.
