what's with Paypal lately?



I didn't know that Paypal is now prescribing charges apart from their $5 withdrawal transaction fee. Last Monday, July 13 I received payment from an independent advertiser for the review I made for their website. I was a bit surprised because instead of $60 I only get $57.36. That prompted me to immediately check the transaction details and from there I found out that a certain fee amounted to $2.64 was being deducted from my earnings.

July 2, I received payment of $40 from the same advertiser. If you take a look at the screen shots below, the first payment was obviously intact while the recent is reduced. So I've been wondering what this is all about. I was thinking of contacting the sender to clarify the issue but I refrain to so do considering that the amount sent to Paypal was undeniably exact.

I have been using Paypal service since 2007 and have deal no issues like this as to my preceding transactions. I tried to review their notifications on policy updates (top right of my account page). The latest policy amendment that took effect June 3 of this year does not actually describe any additional receiving charges like what they could have been mistakably imposed to my account so I wonder where on earth is this coming from! If this was just one of those unavoidable online discrepancies, I might consider but if not I think as a bonafide user I practically have the right to demand clarification from their end.

I wonder if you encountered the same lately. You're free to unload any related issues here.
