Paypal gifting in bst

I think it would be to a lot of peoples benefits to throw up a sticky in bst forums informing users of the risk of gifting money.

For years and years ive constantly encountered people who offer to gift or ask to gift money via paypal but are completely unaware that it forfeits their right to dispute a transaction. I think people would be a lot less inclined to gift money if they were aware of the potential consequences. I mean, offering to gift someone else money, aside from damaging their reputation on pbn, is just begging someone to scam them.

Thanks.

I agree with Inversed.

Some of us know the risks of gifting, whereas, some believe it just saves the seller some fees, yet not knowing they're COMPLETELY screwed if they get scammed.

I still believe it shouldn't be allowed, since it's against PayPal's terms to sell stuff via Gift.
