ok but what do i send the request as?
non ebay
to give him the option?

You can't request a gift payment through paypal, but you can make one, Just tell your sender to click on the 'personal payment' tab and check the gift option before sending the money. Neither party gets charged unless the sender uses a credit card, in which case s/he gets charged but not the receiver. The sender has no recourse to paypal if something goes wrong, which is why you can't make a gift request through the system. It's the sender's choice to waive their protection.
