    Default Re: Do not use "gift" when sending payment by paypal

    I've also had a ton of pleasant gift transactions. Paid others that way without a problem so far (won't for just anyone) and have been paid as gift many times and never flaked out on anyone.
    I had someone haggle me down to a lower price and as I recall they said they would pay the paypal fees, I didn't even mention them. I receive payment and.....fees weren't paid

    I just left it, whatever, didn't want to get into an argument.

    Do Paypal guarantee to refund non-receipt of goods now ? as before if i remember rightly if there is no money in said persons account you get nothing.

    Only asking as i currently have a 510 dispute that i've just escalated to a claim as it's looking like i've been scammed by a member on here. Paid with my Paypal balance aswell, so no credt card back-up there.

    I'm fuming at the moment.

    I give buyers the option to send payment as a gift if they want the item cheaper (or they can cover the fees). I've been on the forums for basically a decade, and I'm not ripping anyone off. In my opinion, it's up to the buyer to decide how they want to pay. Only a handful have decided to pay via "gift", but they got their items and are happy (and saved money)!

    If the seller has been on the forums for only a brief time, has a low post count, etc....then you are insane to send payment as a gift.

    Likewise. But I do agree that "gift" is a bad idea if the seller has 3 posts and a new membership.
    I don't see the problem giving a "gift" "accept fees" option if the seller is established. It's just a way of saving money for both parties.
