Allegedly not if you 'gift' it...

Also no charge to transfer the funds from PP to the underlying Bank Account...

They charge a fee for a commercial transaction but gifts are free.

We're OK then, the FCF Forum Fund is technically a charity....

Yes ... free if you have a bank account or debit card linked to your PP account. I have a credit card with a smallish limit atrached and for that a 3.4% fee would apply.

But does Paypal know that. Apparently not since they took a 5% charge.

I don't know about PayPal John but the main forum bank account is run on that basis..

I believe, had you 'gifted' the money you would not have incurred charges...

I've gifted in the past to other PP accounts and not apparently been charged...

I was charged in the past but they seem to have revised that now.

Great. Thanks JohnD
Job done, though I couldn't find the "Gift" button others have mentioned, so PP dug in a little too.
No harm. It's not as if I do this every day.
I like the idea of stickers, cards, etc.
Cit would certainly be sporting one or two, if they were available.

Sounds like a link-up between Tesco and PayPal :lol:

Good idea for the forum itself though :)
