I cant answer your question about how the buyer paid you on PP however, as most others on here have said do NOT gift money. Pay the extra fees to buy as goods. If this is your first purchase on PBNation, please check out the sellers feedback and make sure to check the thread of members not to do business with. Also, you can look into using a moderator as a third party in the transaction. The third party transaction costs a bit more money but ensures that you will not get ripped off. I have had several great exchanges on here and for the most part all of the members are great people. Good luck.
