Can Someone Simplify When PayPal Charge Fees


Well-known member
I'm unsure as to when PayPal charge fees and when they don't.

I received a payment of $20 which had a $1.08 charge added to it, leaving me with £11.31 after conversion.

I then received a donation of £16.55 and ended up receiving £15.70 after PayPal took a £0.85 fee.

When are fees actually deducted, or are they deducted from all payments?
