Paypal Balance Transfer

Our troop is new to TroopTrack and I’ve been getting up to speed. The system looks great so far.

I’ve read through a bunch of posts about PayPal and I have our standard integration working well.

What I am wondering is about PayPal transfers. I thought that there was a way that if you were to pay for something using your PayPal balance, that there would no transaction fee from them? I might have this confused with using the Send Money feature within the PayPal site where two PayPal users can transfer money for free.

So my basic question is whether there is any way to avoid the PayPal fee, even if it limits the options that families can use within PayPal (ie, no credit card and balance only). It’s not such a big deal for event fees, but it adds up when we collect dues and summer camp/high adventure camp costs.
