I believe the paypal must be send as a gift.
You mean you should lie to PayPal to get them to do something they wouldn't do if they knew the truth? Really?

Quote
Can be gift charged back?
If you are asking if the payment can be reversed, of course it can. The sender just has to say they didn't authorize the payment and PayPal will reverse it. Gifts are the easiest to reverse -- for what possible dishonest reason would a person want to reverse a gift? There are clear reasons to dishonestly try to reverse a payment, but surely someone who wants to reverse a gift is almost certainly telling the truth when they say it's unauthorized.

Goodness.
I guess I'll stay away from Paypal.

If you're a buyer, I suggest you stick to paypal like glue.  If you are a seller, you're screwed with paypal, I'd suggest using something else, like localbitcoins.

Yes it can - and by the Paypal TOS you cannot use Bitcoin (or any other internet currency).

Just read the stories of those that tried and failed creating services for Paypal to BTC (exactly why it should be stickied if it isn't already).



Thank you. I guess no one read TOS anyway.
Can be bank wire transfer reversed by your bank as well ? It makes providing services though if it can.
