WARNING: Paypal gift payments
Please note, that the Paypal "gift" option has some limitations compared to using the normal Paypal payment method.
The "gift" option, is free of charge, but is not supposed to be used for paying for goods.
If there is a problem, and you have used the "gift" option, then Paypal will not be able to help you, as in their eyes, no transaction has taken place.
The fees you pay using the normal "for a purchase" method go towards paying to help you in case there are any problems.
Make sure you have enough in your selling price to account for Paypal fees. Use this calculator: PayPal Fee Calculator by Ryan Olbe (Last Updated: June 04, 2011)
If a seller insists on you as a buyer using the "gift" option, it would be wise to be cautious.
