PayPal is increasing fees for Mass Payments sent outside the U.S., making it potentially much more expensive for those who use the feature to make international payments.

PayPal's Mass Payment feature allows users to send affiliate commissions, customer rebates, survey incentives and more. Currently, Mass Payment fees are 2% of each recipient's payment amount up to a maximum of $1.00 per recipient, or the foreign currency equivalent of $1.00.

Effective January 24, 2012, fees for payments sent outside the U.S. will be 2% of each recipient's payment amount up to a maximum of $20.00 per recipient, or the foreign currency equivalent of $20.00. Fees for Mass Payments sent within the U.S. will not change.

PayPal notified all users of the amended User Agreement on Friday. See the PayPal User Agreement for details.
