    PayPal Gift

    Unsure where to post this, but here goes:

    If I sell an item in here and receive payment via PayPal gift, then post the item, Do I risk the buyer getting a Reversal/Chargeback ? What grounds would they have for reversal ?

    A member that bought an item has recently been suspended (on here). I asked admin but they haven't replied - so I guess they aren't interested...

    For this reason I haven't posted the item yet, risking my quick dispatch reputation.

    should be in misc.........however contact the member(if you got full details as per rules) and ask them what is going on?

    Say if I refunded them and didn't post item - just for safety reasons...

    ...Could they get their account re-instated and leave me a negative (I have no intention of doing this to them).

    If it were me and i had the cash then just fulfill your side of the deal and post the item. I cant see why Paypal would issue a chargeback - just make sure you post the item recorded delivery and youre covered. At the end of the day hes paid... and i dont think you can reverse a gift except under certain circumstances like you sent it to the wrong paypal address. If the buyer has paid up then hes fulfilled his side of the deal.

    Come on - a simple read of paypal shows that paypal gift is for none … Come on - a simple read of paypal shows that paypal gift is for none buying and selling of items. There is no chargeback as the money is supposedly a gift and not for purchase of the item.Unless the paypal account is not thiers and they claim fraudulant use by someone you have the money!The person has paid you now fulfil your side of the bargain.



    exactly..
    post the item and fulfill ur end of the deal..suspensions on here can be for trivial reasons...they arent banned are they-therefore they will be back on in a few days.
    or email the buyer throught thier paypal email account?

    Didn't you get a contact number,to call the buyer?

    Anyway,as other members have said,either refund the money or mail it.:thumbsup:

    Jeez - I said I'd only post once I know it was a safe payment.

    People are making it out like I was nicking his money......

    I didn't want to lose the item and the money - surely I am being sensible ?

    I said a refund was a possibility. The member has no feedback and was banned. I was being cautious.

    M8 i dont think peeps are making out u wanna nick the money... just saying that the buyer has fulfilled his side of the deal and that once youve got the money there is no refund on a paypal gift, so you are safe ;-)
