If that other website is eBay, it's against ebay rules and regs to charge the customer for any transaction fees including PayPal.
And yes, to answer your original question - the receiver of the money (seller) pays the fees on it.

You used to hear about Paypal flagging basically any large transaction and holding funds for weeks, months, heck i think at the time in the pp terms and conditions hypothetically they could hold it forever.

with certain product categories known to have fraud, counterfeits, issues, etc they often have limits or are quicker to do things like this. this would include high end handbags, very high end designer clothes, rolex and similar watches, coins, currency, etc.

that said overall they seem to be better about not doing this stuff and their customer service seems better than in years past.

ebay and paypal are rolling out mnay new things though. i heard pp recently got big fines over not following banking laws regarding currency transactions and pp and ebay have put in some new limits and things.

You are most likely dealing with a private individual who you want to pay via paypal. They are most likely not inclined to wanting to pay the fee to paypal. The work-around is to have YOU pay more to cover the fee. OR, find another way to pay the seller.

Might suck but they have sure both made me a ton of money over the years.

Follow their rules, do a good job, describe items correctly, ship fast and have the right product and you can make an absolute killing on ebay selling.
