Quoted from badbilly27:
I've had a few locals want to pay via paypal for pinball games I sold in past and rejected - cash only. I'm wondering if I should have accepted as "gift" as Paypal really doesn't freeze accounts if someone complains long after the sale in the "gift" mode. I think.
What are others thoughts?
I believe the standard answer is to still never do it. Even if sent as a gift, you're on the hook if the buyer pays through paypal with a credit card instead of through their paypal funds and then does a charge back on the card. That charge back goes through paypal and they're gonna want that money back from the seller.
