Why is this still an issue with folks? Talking about a couple of bucks...just hang tight on a higher price if you don't want to absorb the extra cost. Gift option NO ONE pays the fee. People who demand it are wrong...people who suggest it politely as a payment OPTION should be in the right.
Negative - this is a revamping of the original rules - PayPal gift is not allowed
here. Period. Too much headache and hassle. I thought folks could handle it if allowed to request it privately amongst people they know - but that turned into people demanding it privately from strangers or asking for a higher price if they didn't want to pay using gift option. So, like everything else, the actions of a few get to ruin it for everyone else. No PayPal gift option, period.
I should have known, over all these years, that only the rules with ZERO
wiggle room will work. If there's any wiggle room, folks will exploit it or claim they didn't think it applied in this case or that. So, like our other rules, we are making this VERY clear and VERY easy:NO PAYPAL GIFT OPTION HERE.
I could care less that it's against PayPal's rules, they are responsible to enforce their rules, not us -- I guess folks that have paid for products using the gift option because they were forced to use it should contact PayPal and let them know you were forced to use it...see if they charge the seller their fee after the fact
