Okay, thank you. After discussing the issue with twztid13, I understand the situation better now. In hindsight, I see some of my questions here were a little stupid. >_<;

Given all that, I'm much more inclined to use Amazon Payments - they don't charge a fee, right? Sounds good to me! I've already put in my List that I prefer to use Amazon Payments to avoid the fee issue with Paypal.

It's such a shame. PP is so easy to use to purchase something, but I had no idea (until recently) that they charged the seller to receive purchase payments. I suppose it really isn't a lot of money, but where I'm already pricing my items so low (due to depreciated monetary value for many of the games), every extra loss is a little galling.

There are situations, as we found out, that Paypal is OK with the use of personal/gifted payments, where they don't take out the fee, though they're only specific situations. Everything else would be used as purchase/non-personal payments.

Amazon Payments doesn't charge fees, not at this time. They may in the future. I've used them a couple of times and they work perfectly fine as a Paypal substitute.

Question, if I may. I purchased some items from a Cag member and was told to send payment as gift or pay the fee (an ongoing thing with this seller) and hadn't had any problems until I didn't receive my package. Usps apparently lost it and after a couple months of hounding usps, they gave word that it is np where to be found. But due to my sending funds as gift, I was unable to dispute it. How do I go about getting my payment back, or at least get reimbursed? Contacted seller and is willing to resell me one of the items but at a discounted rate, which isn't even close to the amount I paid. Hopefully this is the right place to post this. If not, lease direct to me to where I need to post this.

I had a similiar situation a few months ago except the seller turned out to be a Fraud (Disappeared after payment was made / never logged on). I also paid using Gift (Big mistake), Paypal wouldnt help me dispute either, So what I did was call up my Credit Card company, informed them that the payment is Void (Because item never showed up) and they gave me back the credit. Not sure if that'll work for you but thats what I did afterwards, Good luck.

Unfortunately this transaction happened in april. I don't know if there's a time frame to dispute.

Unless you can get a credit card company to help you out, you are probably out of luck. This is excactly why the mods at CAG have been preaching not to send PayPal payments as gifts. Best of luck, but please learn from this in the future. I wish there was something else I could say to give you hope. It is worth a shot to try no matter how long it has been. You can explain your delay by referencing the post office looking for the supposed package.

I wasn't quite sure where to ask/find this information. This seems like the most appropriate place. I have two question since I have no feedback I understand that I would have to pay first. I'm used to using my paypal to purchase items from online stores. My question is:

 

1. To pay someone on here all I need is their email address right?

2. I only have to pay the amount they request and paypal fee gets taken out of that?

 

Did I get that right?

Yes on both accounts. When paying through PayPal, you choose the goods and services option as opposed to the friends and family option.

Are tracking numbers expected around here?

A couple of years ago, I saw all manner of policies from CAG's on tracking. Recently, it seems that CAG's realized it's worth the .85 cents to get delivery confirmation (which is different from tracking number, but I'm not sure if you are specifically referring to tracking as opposed to proof of delivery). Some would offer it as an option to the buyer, at worst. Is is still up to the individual member, so everyone has had different experiences, I'm sure. This is certainly something I would mention when making deals, just to be certain. Since I'm sure you want some type of answer.....I'd have to be very general about my transactions, and can only speak for my experiences, but I'd say yes.

expected is a tough word, but 9 out of 10 times it happens regardless. I always get tracking when I ship, and pretty much require the same unless I have traded multiple times with a person or have traded once before and they have high, established feedback.

 

my grandfather always said "expect the unexpected" so when trading, its best to clarify with the person that you would like it before hand

Personally, I think for digital items, using gift should be okay.

Obviously when things are shipped they CAN get lost so I wouldn't advise giftiing in that situation.

Honestly, when I sell digital codes that are'nt gifted the seller can Fuck me over at any time because Paypal does not cover "Digital" items.

That's why this rule is full of bullshit.

 If you don't like Paypal's rules, then use a different service such as Amazon Payments.
