    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.

    ok well from my personal experience and naivety and stupidity, don't send any money by paypal friends and family to someone you do not know for a large value.


    I did it once using my bank account to their bank account using paypal and never got the item nor my money back.


    Did it "AGAIN" but this time having some concern that I did not know the person. But this time was a little less stupid and used my credit card. Hey presto another scammer or should I say scummer! BUT, got my money back after some hassle.


    No problem sending money to people I know. Never an issue. But to someone I do not know, never again.

    Take it from me, I am still smarting from it as is my pride and my bank account. Sadly destroys your trust in people but too many arseholes about and not so many good people sadly. you just do not know who you are talking to or if they even have the model you are after.

    I should have asked the scummer to take another photo of the item from another angle and send it me to prove he had it but never the less, DONT GO THROUGH THE PAIN AND HASSLE AND STRESS WHICH I HAVE BEEN THROUGH> MINE IS A CLEAR CUT WARNING CASE> ONLY SEND TO FRIENDS AND FAMILY IF YOU TRUST AND KNOW SOMEONE NEVER USE YOUR BANK TO TRANSFER AND IF YOU ARE THAT NAIVE< USE A CREDIT CARD TO TRY FOR SOME PROTECTION CAUSE PAYPAL DONT GET A DAMN THIS WAY NO PROTECTION FULL STOP!!!!!
