Can we please add something in to the forum rules to stop people asking for Paypal as a gift or payment owed etc?This is standard practice on a lot of other forums now, and more importantly the buyer gets no protection when sending a gift. Paypal rules state that a purchase is only covered when you send money for "goods" and sellers shouldn't be asking for anything else. You're not giving me a gift, you are receiving funds for goods - a transaction.I'm getting pissed of with it and refuse to deal with people who try to avoid the fees. If you are accepting Paypal as payment, factor it in to your asking price and keep it simple. Both parties are then legally covered for the transaction. I strongly advise anyone against sending payments any other way.
You still pay a fee on the other end when you a gift though, so someone has to pay them either way.You may as well have proper protection if they are making something out of the deal anyway.
I feel that Pictures of all items should be mandatory also.
