Default Paypal gifts?

I see this alot on forums, I've never used it myself but gotta wonder how long would paypal allow you to accept payment as gift before they give you the ax? Anyone know?

Good question, I'm not sure if theres an answer for this, back when I had my real pp account, I did it numerous times without any problems at all, but the account was over 2 years old, and had so many transactions, for a stealth account i doubt it can last that long, pp will think you're trying to avoid taxes, or come up with some type of excuse to ban you, if you plan on doing this i wouldn't do it 5-10 times a week maybe 1-2 times, even thats asking for trouble i guess.

ya i remember when you were able to see how many transactions you had done on your account on paypal. i remember my number was over 30000 of them and this was over many many accounts since they never linked anything back in the day.

those were the days.

as for my thoughts on your post, i do not beleive it is safe to accept a payment in gift form, depending on the amount of course. if you are transfering a few hundred dollars it can be pretty risky for sure. 20-50 should go alright tho. just dont make it a habit b/c they watch everything.

With pa yp al, you have to understand that there is no SET number - everything is based on risk analysis, algorithms, and actuarial math.

That being said, doing this gift payment frequently would link you. Draining your pa yp al account would be dangerous. What you sell is also key. So many factors.

You can be linked at any time - use all your understanding and go about it prudently I would say.
