    Lets stop beating about the bush. Admin stop immediately any paypal gift adverts all sellers factor in the costs of receiving normal paypal in the selling price. The buyer will either like the price or not.

    Life is them much simpler and SAFE

    If you do a backroom deal with paypal gift with a seller don't involve admin its your fault if it goes wrong. Its a private off line deal

    Maybe its something for the buyers on here to address? If you buy something off ebay or online you wouldn't offer/agree to send the payment as a gift would you? Just because a seller might ask for that doesn't mean you have to agree. You could just offer to pay tincy bit more if you feel inclined, but send the agreed payment as a proper payment for goods. Admin could just post that as an "Advice to Buyers" point if they don't want to go so far as banning some sales ads requesting paypal as gift.

    If I sell something on here, I don't care what method a buyer uses to pay me. Bank transfer, cheque, paypal, makes no difference to me. I use SD post to ensure any items I sell gets to the buyer. If an item gets lost, then RM foot the bill, it's as simple as that.

    I have always used paypal gift when buying on here, the way I see it is, if you can't trust the people on here, who can you trust?

    PS: in case some of you do not know it, ebay owns paypal. It is the main reason why they put the brakes on bank transfers as a payment option.

    I am sure ebay and paypal have separated.

    I dare say they have on paper ...... for tax purposes. When you make more money than the Arabs, you can do what you like.

    RMSD is the best way to post, but, if you make a claim for lost items make absolutely clear you have the original receipt for said items or you'll get 46 max.
    Selling a 300 second hand rod, that you stated was worth 300 when you posted it means nothing unless you have the receipt.
    Been there done it, ask at the PO counter first, the last one I asked hadn't a clue.

    That is an interesting and very good point. If you bought a winston B3x secondhand for say 350 on here and then sold it again on here for say 300 no receipts anywhere.

    Will have to check that out with RM no good sending RMSD if no full compensation

    I know if you sell via ebay and claim they ask for an ebay ID number to check sale

    Just had a look at the RM website . It states this for special delivery

    7.Evidence of the actual loss must be provided to enable Royal Mail to determine the value of the contents of a packet. Such evidence might be original receipts, bank or credit card statements, details of age, paypal record, invoices, manufacturing costs, auctioneers valuation, and repair costs in the case of damage claims. This list is not exhaustive and is for illustrative purposes only.
    8.All documentation provided must be originals not copies. Customers are strongly advised to retain a copy of all original documents submitted in support of a claim.


    The paypal record could prove useful but it appears it is not just the original receipt.

    So back to my original question, if an item is lost, which party stands the loss?

    If i was sending a rod RMSD and it was lost then i would refund the money to the buyer and start a discussion /argument / claim with RM.

    I feel it is not the buyers problem to sort it out its mine.

    just my opinion though
