This will go into the rules but I'm posting it here first so you guys are aware of it.

Payment by gift for paypal have gradually increased and they need to stop, it's a way of avoiding fees so that the seller can sell slightly cheaper and all's good, but as the transaction is happening via bcuk it's not good and so I'm asking everyone that does it to stop doing it and just add a little to their prices if need be.
Any classifieds that we see that are paypal as gift will be removed and we will not be PMing people to explain ourselves, we'll just bin the threads.

Please note that this also covers asking for payments as friends and family (edited 2019)

Thanks for reading

We've noticed that there's more bank transfers etc when buying products through the classifieds, this is a reminder that we want you to buy using PayPal and add any extra fees to the cost of the item.

The reason for this is that everyone is covered, if there's an issue it can be raised with paypal and you're likely to get your money back. If you pay via bank transfer or PayPal friends and family you have no cover.

it's rare but there are occasions that people do not receive products they have paid for, this will not become our issue, especially if you have not done as we have asked.

Thanks for your understanding
Tony
