Paypal-send money with no fees by coffeejelly Paypal-send money with no fees by coffeejelly
This is for buyers/clients, I keep running into ppl that complain about getting charged a fee when they send money through paypal, or they are just unaware that there is a way to not get charged. Be warned though, sending money this way has no security for the purchase, but some people tend to hate paypal if they have to pay any fee making it so some artists and clients miss out on commission work.

This is for those who say things like "Ugh, paypal sucks. They charge you a fee to send money!" etc. etc. Lol. =P

Click for Full View.

I will update this if paypal changes their process.

*Edit: I think now you might have to pay a fee anyways if you are using a credit card to pay. Debit cards might not have a fee, paypal balance gift transfers to another person shouldnt have a fee*

This is illegal and it will get both the buyer and seller in trouble.

Just so you know, if someone is buying a commission or adoptable etc... it is illegal for the seller to ask them to send it as a personal payment.

I get fee when I get money sended to me O.o
I dont use a credit card but I have my money right on paypal so I dont know if the people I send money to, get a fee. >< I hope not. It never get me a fee when I send money only when I recieve it.

Though I'm not in the US so my paypal looks different.

This isnt a good idea at all.
If you do this then your purchase is NOT covered by Paypals protection.
Basically, if you do it this way and the person you commission suddenly decides that they aren't going to complete your commission AND decides to not reimburse you there is ABSOLUTELY NOTHING you can do about it.
The fee is a small thing to pay for the protection offered.

This is actually against Paypal ToS!! If you continue to do this you may lose access to your account, along with your money in it. If fees are such a problem then artists need to raise their prices. The commissioner is not sending you money as a gift--they are buying a SERVICE from you thus they are in the right when they send payment as a service.

For me it's the opposite,

I only get a fee if I choose 'Family and Friends' 

If I'm paying for 'services' or a 'payment owed' there is no fee, other than the conversion fee when I change from AUD to USD

Though, I use Australian paypal.

Alternate options might be called 'Friends and Family'

Should be a suboption there labelled as 'gift'

But I always get a fee if I use that ouo;;

as to what I've heard, if you have a verified account you don't need to pay any fees what so ever
or i think it's setup to where the artist doesn't pay the fees but the commissioner does?

No, paypal has not changed anything, cuz thats a OFICIAL option, but you need to add atleast 10$ so it wont charge you, a better way is to use Payment Owed
