There are certain subjects that should have the conversations condensed into a single Wiki article.

For reference, I like articles. For learning, I prefer the back and forth conversation of a forum.

So if it doesn't go the way you like it should be deleted from the forum? I asked another poster why he said it should be deleted. You replied to it so I guess that's your thoughts about it. Not sure what other conclusion I could come to. Still waiting to hear from moko as to why he thought it should be deleted from the forum.

Jeez Louise, No!

I just think long threads that are continually revised (the Canon Loyalty thread comes to mind) would be well served by a Wiki page in addition to the conversation. Slickdeals.net does this. On their site, any thread can also include a Wiki which can be updated as prices, availability, etc. change.

For example, in regards to this particular thread, it would be nice if readers had access to a reference that shows the other Personal Payment choices besides Gift; incuding Payment Owed and Other. Reading through most of these threads, it sounds like the only choice for a payment without Buyer Protection involves lying and calling the payment a Gift.

luciddreamer, I'm on your side. This is an open forum and people are continually coming and going. Not everyone will have the opportunity to have read every other thread on a subject.


Replacing my Canon 7D, Tokina 12-24mm, Canon 17-55mm, Sigma 30mm f/1.4, 85mm f/1.4, and 150-500mm with a Panasonic Lumix FZ1000. I still have the 17-55 and the 30 available for sale.

Ok, have to agree. Sounds like a good idea. Did not understand your previous post.

As a seller, the 3% charge has never been a significant issue for me. PayPal's providing their biased 'Buyer Protection" to an unknown entity is a huge issue for me and why I will only accept a PayPal Personal Payment for any buyer that can't or won't provide references, or for any foreign buyers.

That said, I've used regular PayPal quite a few times and have never had a problem. But only to buyers with reputations that can be confirmed.

I am with cacawcacaw on this one. I doubt many sellers are using PayPal gift for the 3% fee. I request gift as a seller's protection, not to save $10. Just like cacawcacaw, if the buyer has plenty of feedback, I would be more than happy to do regular PayPal, but most often the buyer has little to no feedback and regular PayPal payment is too much protection for the buyer and none for the seller.

You don't want to pay me with Gift? Fine, move along, someone else will take the time to look at my feedback and get a great deal. But banning it altogether?!? Where are you from, CCCP? :rolleyes:

I think we should quit using twitter/facebook/email​/smartphones and go back to physically mailing letters to contact others.

I thought everyone around these parts had abandoned Paypal for all the other superior services out there.

Cool, maybe now sellers won't ask for "Gift" on every sale. I hate that.

My solution has always been to not buy from sellers who do that.
