Is this wrong?? I have had alot of people ask me to send payment as a gift.. I have no problem doing it. But Some people are getting a hard time for doing it.
But I know I spend money on Shipping and packing the cards. And always give a better deal when not using Paypal.. So Im trying to save people money by taking gift payments. Including myself..If I ever do.

To me Paypal offers me no protection. I have had several deals where Paypal was wrong and still went with the wrong end of the deal..

I have money in my Paypal account and they pay me no interest. So what service are they providing me?? That I'm not paying for??

Just like to know that other people think.. Thanks..
