"Do I have protection from PayPal if I use the gift option?" Sun 02-Jun-13 01:00 AM by NikonMark37814
I'm not comfortable using PayPal's gift option and insist on using regular PayPal even if it means adding 3%. Do I have the same protection from PayPal if I use the gift option? Are you comfortable using the gift option? Whenever I sell something I take PayPal and take care of paying the fees, wished others would do the same. Do I take any risks using PayPal gift? Does the seller take any risks?

FWIW,I think it is morally corrupt to use Paypal Gift in a buy/sell transaction. Screwing PP out of their 3% is just not right. Oh, one has no PP protection if the deal goes south and one has used the gift option.

On a fishing site I frequency with a BST, PP Gift option is forbidden due to lack of protection (and increased possibility of fraud I suppose) and subject to an infraction given to the OP. They also do not allow listing the PP fee separately so folks just increase the asking to begin with.
