Anyone who sends me funds via email arrangements needs to send the funds as a regular transaction for goods, NOT a personal transaction. I know you are trying to do me a favor and are just trying to save some fees but please don't do that. I have an agreement with Paypal as a merchant that I will not abuse my account and that means sidestepping fees for something that is a business transaction.
Believe it or not, I don't mind paying some fees as the service that Paypal provides me is far cheaper than it would be if I had to process my own credit cards. So, looking at it from a business point of view I'm quite happy to pay them their fees. And don't forget, as a merchant I am paying less per transaction than you would.
The other reason I ask please do NOT send funds via a personal transaction is that when you send funds via a personal transaction no address comes through because Paypal treats it as what you said it was, a personal transaction which means I don't need to mail anything right? So I have to dig through past transactions or ask for the address by email. And then either go through a bunch of extra steps to create a label or hand mail it at the PO window. So it makes more work for me...
Anyway, just trying to lay it out so folks understand it. ;)
Thanks, and have a great weekend!
