Read somewhere it was 2.9% when payment is made via credit card under friends and family… and the charge is paid by either sender or recipient. Perhaps I am reading out of date information.

Rui is correct.

Therein lies the problem – PayPal loses money on these transactions, so while not specifying any limits, sometimes gets upset. Amex also accepts such transactions up to a point, but can decide they are excessive and/or are cash like transactions.
