Sending Paypal as gift is not allowed at TCC. Despite the fact that we have posted this many, many times and it is listed as prohibited in our site rules we are still seeing requests for Paypal as a gift almost everyday... and these requests are often coming from established members.

Paypal is a company that provides a service, a service that they charge for. If you are going to use their service to purchase items here at TCC, you are expected to pay to use it. You would expect no less if you were providing a service for someone.

Effective immediately, any request for Paypal as a gift will result in a suspension of a minimum of 30 days.

Spread the word to your fellow TCC'ers, because pleading ignorance will not reduce the suspension.

Thank You,

"Baseball players will take anything. If you had a pill that would guarantee a pitcher 20 wins but might take five years off his life, he'd take it" MLB pitcher Jim Bouton about drug use in the Major Leagues... quoted in 1969.

I vow to no longer purchase any product that features sticker autographs...
If your user name is this color I'm afraid I'll have to pass on any proposed transactions at this time.

Agreed, which is why your suggestion of welcome email is a good one.... one that we are definitely looking at.

That being said, as a Team member, it is very frustrating to keep repeating ourselves with members who know better. In one recent thread we had two members (not Team) give the person a heads up about Paypal as a gift and he continued to ask for it. That is just plain disrespectful.

Yeah I know whenever I see someone asking for Paypal gift I let them know that it isnt allowed on here. On a transaction on another site someone wanted to pay me as a gift and I pm'ed him and told him that just send it regular even before he sent payment. Guess what he sent it as a gift. If I am asked to pay gift I wont I will add another dollar or so to help fees but I wont gift.

Looking for all Stl Cardinal GU and Autos also any Roger Maris
