Hi all,
I am selling something, and read that "paypal gift" is not secure for the seller...Does anyone know how to ask for payment covering both members and paying the least amount in fees?
Thanks.

No guarantees with Paypal whichever method.

Use Bank Transfer.



The buyer is only willing to pay via Paypal.

Really? I never knew that...If I use "goods, other" and they reverse it, am I covered?

No. If it gets reversed then you are out of pocket. They could claim it was a unauthorised transaction etc.

Although do you think they'd do this? If you have doubts then don't sell to them.

They could, and I hear you. Takes a right ****** to do that, and their ebay feedback is good and high. I am just trying to limit my risks...I am thinking "goods,other" as if I also send insured delivery, then I am hoping that I at least have a case..?

I dont think paypal gift can be reversed unless your account was hacked so its the best way i can think of.

Surely if I request money through Paypal, and they accept, and pay, they can not dispute it at a later date? They really have got us by the goolies!
