The big issue for gift payments for me are to avoid being scammed internationally..and sometimes even domestically.
Even with insurance, DC and expedited S&H, a paypal payment can be easily reversed merely if the buyer states the package contained a different item than described!
HORRIBLE! and there is NO WAY AROUND THIS! I spoke with a Paypal rep for 2 hours and brought this up, he said they are working on it ... he has a Paypal/ebay account and he knows what it's like, its terrible what some people are doing with the leash, and ability to scam!
