New to buying through PayPal

Hey guys I've always kept my exchanges local but today I am purchasing an ego through PayPal. I literally have no knowledge of the process. Can someone help me out? Thanks!

Get contact info from seller, send money simple as that.

Never gift payments.

Like gamer said. A lot of sellers will try to get you to "gift" the money to save them the 3-4% that paypal charges THEM on the transaction.

The only problem is if you send money as a gift, you won't be eligible for a refund if they rip you off can't refund a gift. The fees are minimal. Pay it if they're too cheap to do it.
It's all about the angles.

Simple as this:

Type in sellers paypal address (usually an email)

Type in amount of money to send

And as said before, don't send it as a gift. If you send it as "for goods/services" paypal will back you up and if you get scammed, you will be able to get your money back. When you gift, you are not supported by paypal.
Yes, paintball is a sport.

Yeah what everyone said, Never gift on big purchases because you can't dispute it.

Also you don't need a bank account, you can just link a credit or debit card and it will work. If you link a bank account it will let you gift for free but it will also work.
