Buying something with PayPal.

It’s free to use PayPal to buy something unless it involves a currency conversion.

Buying online or instore : Free (when no currency conversion is involved).

Sending and receiving money.

It’s free to use PayPal to send or receive money between friends and family within Belgium and the EU, as long as the payment is funded by a bank account, debit card or PayPal balance, and no currency conversion is involved.

If you use a credit card to send money, we charge you, the sender, a small fee. An additional fee may also apply in case you send money in a different currency or make an international transfer.

We think that’s pretty fair.

Sending or receiving money between friends and family within Belgium and the EU (in Euro): Free when funded by the sender’s PayPal balance or bank account. If you use a credit card to send money, a fee of 3.4% + 0.35 EUR applies.
Sending or receiving money between friends and family within Belgium and the EU (in foreign currencies): Currency conversion fees may apply. If you are using a credit card, a fee of 3.4% + 0.35 EUR applies.
Sending or receiving money to/from friends and family outside Belgium and the EU: A small fixed fee may apply to cross-border payments, depending on where the sender and the recipient are based and how the payment is funded.
