well you don't get any protection with paypal gift, maybe you should pay normal paypal and cover the fees, just for the added peace of mind.

Pay for an item rather than a gift. As a gift you have no claim to the item as it wasn't sent as paying for goods. If you click pay for goods upon sending the money, you will be charged a bit extra but can claim the item or get a refund if something goes wrong, the reason most people request gift is to avoid these charges, you'll probably have to cover the charges and always look at the sellers FS/FT feedback.

Its against paypals policy to ask for the fees ONTOP of the payment.

oh so the seller has to pay the fees even tho the buyer pays for 'goods'
and just wondering how is the fee calculated? like how much would you have to pay for sending £100 for goods

I may be wrong but I thinks its 10%, so £10. This sounds too expensive so I think I may be incorrect. It will tell you when confirming the transaction. The unwritten rule is you should pay for any fees as it's considered as an extra here on HUKD, the most common method just being paypal gift

No £100 would cost the reciever £3.73. Plus 20p
£200 is 7.25 plus 20p
£50 is £1.97 plus 20p
£10 is 56p plus 20p so its like 1 or 2 % not 10%

He/she^^^^^^^ is slightly off too,the total cost for the seller to receive a 100 quid payment is 3.60

For 200 quid it would be 7.00:thumbsup:

Get real, maybe if you are accepting a Ebay payment, but not personal ones

i wonder if there's a "Escrow" type thing available in the uk, for a decent price....
Heard they're very common in the US and they apparently work quite well!

EDIT: Escrow isn't actually that different to what paypal does but only for ebay purchases. outside of ebay, you get very little protection from them.
