PayPal India users were facing issues with PayPal withdrawal and personal payments, where finally local banks withdrawal is working fine but a new problem has come which is the latest fees structure specially designed for Indian users. If your account is in PayPal India then you will be paying fees for receiving payments even on your personal account. Previously the fee was taken in case of Premier account only but now they have changed the structure and taking huge fees on received payments.
Previously the fees structure was different for personal and premier accounts but now PayPal India has released the new fees structure with a common structure for both type of accounts. We have attached below the previous and the latest fees structure released by PayPal India.
Old Fees Structure
New Fees Structure of PayPal India
As you can see in above comparison, Receive Payments section was free for “Personal Accounts” users but now in new structure, PayPal is taking a fee of 3.9% + $0.30 USD from any type of account. That means you will have to pay transaction charges for receiving the payments. These changes occurred after RBI’s policy changes and Government of India’s restriction on PayPal operation. Any update from PayPal India is awaited on the new structure of transaction fees but you will have to change your service charges to reduce the effect of this new structure.
