    Hello,

    I'm facing a little problem with the PayPal's transaction fees. I want to send some money to a friend, but the fees are a little high in my country. %4.4 + $0.30.

    How can I overcome this and send the money without paying or paying the smallest fee possible?

    Sending money as a gift is not available for me.

    Thanks!

    P.S. I hope that I posted this thread in the right section.

    The link is redirecting me to a PayPal information page. Opening an account, fees and withdrawing money. Can you elaborate a little? What's a personal payment?

    Thanks.

    A friend's and family (aka personal) payment has no fees but no buyer / seller protection. However, it is only available in some countries.

    In your case, I'd suggest making a paypal account in another country (for example canada). Use a private proxy, and the fees are a lot lower (1.9%)

    This is not a bad idea. I'll keep this option in mind. The only problem is verifying the other PayPal and then sending the payments.

    For some countries the support/help pages are completely different.

    I am in Morocco. The fees are high as you can see, that's why I'm trying to find a solution to reduce them.

    All of those will only eat more money lol. Bank transfer is not necessary, the money needs to remain virtual for some purchases.

    Not true at all, they favor 1st world countries like US, UK, Canada, etc.

    I'd even go as far to say that making PP accounts in US is annoying, as US laws ask for so many verifications

    Why not use Bitcoin? Only .05 per transaction. Accepted worldwide.
    It still surprises me that people want to use PayPal .
    The future of digital transaction has arrived, embrace it.

    there are no charges for the account. they might charge you for transactions, currency conversion and withdrawal only.
