PayPal will become for a fee for those who do not use it. It seems paradoxical but in reality it is what emerges from a careful reading of the new terms of use, which will officially enter into force. starting May 6, 2022.
The cost? 10 euro for those who have not used the platform for more than 12 months.

PayPal paid: is it all true?

It seems the usual hoax but in reality it is all true.
Among the news coming in May there is the introduction of an inactivity fee. Basically the non-use of the account for a period exceeding 12 months will lead to a charge of an amount equal to 10 euro.
A measure that will involve the accounts of sellers starting from October 2022 and those of private individuals from October 2023.

Of course, this is not the only change coming but it is certainly the most striking one.
In fact, we are used to paying sums – whether small or large – for the use of a service but never for inactivity.
A particularly curious choice that will certainly not remain unnoticed.
