You're buying something from him for 9 pounds? You'll probably be okay.

Sending as friend/fam is acceptable as long as it is done 1-2x per mo according to Paypal law. Just kidding, I made up that law.

They don't really know, but the fact that they are not getting any fees is what usually triggers it.

So I think that if you intentionally wants to bypass their fees, eventually, you'll get caught.

From my experience if F/F payments are less than 10% of total outcome, then accounts does not get limited.

I'm sending money to my suppliers as F/F transfers from 4 stealth PayPal accounts for 1-2 years for now (5-10 transactions a day sometimes). None of them was limited till now. One account was limited and lost recently after sudden raise of income, unfortunately.

How about using a different method to send the money instead of paypal?

like bank transfer or sending in a scanned check?
