Default Never pay for goods as a "gift" or "friends & family" in PayPal

Be careful of those that ask you to pay for items as a "gift" in PayPal. If you do, you forfeit filing for a disput if your goods do not arrive, or are damaged due to poor packing by seller. While it avoids a percentage charge, it offers no protection with PayPal.

PayPal treats a "gift" payment just as it sounds; a gift. You have no buyer protection when payment is made this way, as a "gift" payment is not used to buy goods.

Be Careful!!!

And the percentage you save is only 2.9%, not worth it. Unless I have done business with somebody in the past multiple times and they've proved trustworthy, I NEVER send as Gift, always Goods. And I move a LOT of money through Paypal.

Ever had an issue with Paypal not accepting a credit/debit card? I am trying to buy from a user and it won't let my debit card go through. I am using Paypal account and I know my card has plenty of money on it to pay for the product.

you take your chances. I have paid and recieved payments via paypal using the gift option and never been burned once yet. Maybe i have gotton lucky or maybe its karma cause i have never screwed anyone over either.
Who knows, but as stated before, you do take your chance by doing so.

I have paid as a gift numerous times and never had a problem. Makes sense not to with all the scammers in the world today. What a shame
