Default paypal gift

I just thought I would make this a little more public. Please delete if it is against any rules.

I recently became aware of the ability to send payment as a gift in paypal. This enables the seller to avoid the fees associated with the transaction.

I know that paypal is used extensively by this site and it could save some people a little coin.

Whether or not this is morally right/wrong will be left up to each individual who uses the service.

How are you going to dispute a gift transaction?

Good, this is the type of information that I was wondering about. Typically there is no free lunch.

Gifting money means you are helping the seller by reducing their cost, and removing any ability you have to get money back if deal goes sour.

It doesn't seem worth the risk. Please paypal me $10 for this response.

Thanks
