Sending and receiving is pretty easy.

You can receive money by telling someone the email you use for paypal.

They go to the Send Money tab at the top of the site, type in your email into the "To" field, and however much they're sending.

When you receive it, it shows up in your recent activity log. It will stay in your balance until you transfer it to your bank account (you have to have them linked), or until you use it.

https://www.paypal.com/us/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_display-fees-outside  is probably more what's wanted here.. the other one required you to log in. (Go figure)
In any case, the fees aren't especially large, and they have to get their operating costs from somewhere. (For those who may not know, credit card companies do exactly the same thing to stores when you pay with one)

Thanks for the information, but I'm somewhat confused by the fees.

What part confuses you? I'll do my best to clear it up for you.

Pretty much what fees pertain to what.

Like, if I receive money from someone and it goes through a credit or debit card it takes... 4.9% /and/ 30 cents? oo' I don't get that.

yes, it takes a certain percentage of whatever you send or receive when using a credit or debit card.

if you send or receive money from a paypal balance, then there is no charge.

you can also transfer funds to and from your bank account to and from your paypal balance, which is also of no charge.
