Got first PayPal Mobile payment
My friend Scott just sent me a PayPal Mobile payment. Below is the e-mail I received alerting me of the payment.

PayPal Mobile email

The process to accept the payment was painless. I clicked the link in the e-mail, logged into my account and clicked the "Accept payment" button.

The bummer of the whole thing was when I realized that $.33 of the $1 payment went to PayPal. For some reason, my acount is labeled "Premier," so I don't qualify for receiving money for free. Not sure how I got that account level, but I would sure love to get rid of it.

BTW, here is what PayPal charges Premier/Business accounts to receive money: 1.9% to 2.9% + $0.30 USD.
