It seems pretty common, at least with the few carriers I've dealt with
in the US.

As for payment, the sender doesn't pay anything (What are they going
to do -- send a bill to the sender's e-mail address?) and the
recipient pays standard rates for an incoming message. If it's within
your monthly allotment, it's "free." I don't know if there are quotas
imposed to prevent someone from "abusing" the service.
