"Gift" PayPal payments..?

Recommended Posts

Hoping someone knows the actual answer to this: Is it okay to receive payments on PayPal as "gift?"

I've sold 07 via gold websites for years and usually I'll receive a "payment" upon completing the sale. Is it alright to sell to gold sites who send their payment via "gift" PayPal option?

Basically I sold gold last night to  07RS3 gold and upon discussion of $/M we  agreed upon a price and they agreed to pay the "fee." I make ~100 sales per year and for the first time ever I received the money as "gift." I assume PayPal doesn't get fees this way.

Should I continue selling to people/sites that do this? I just thought it was a bit weird. I googled around a bit for about an hour and couldn't find a direct answer.

 

Any advice appreciated, thanks

fees are used upon payments that are not within the same country.

(atleast it is for the netherlands)

even payments made as gift can be disputed.

I wouldn't ya can still dispute it.

More concerned about breaking the PayPal terms of service or something for receiving gift as payment - not exactly a charge back/dispute.

I've never had to deal with a charge back, been selling over 3 years. Just trying to figure out if receiving as gift for "payment" purposes is technically breaking their rules or not

 

Appreciate the replies btw

paypal doesnt look into payments unless you have atleast 20k recieved in a year or made over 2.000 payments within a year.
