Not really, as using the Gift option is simply that, a gift. If someone is asking you to pay for an item using the Personal Gift option this is wrong as they are trying to avoid paying the transaction processing fees. If you do pay the person, you are not protected in any way, shape or form. And there's the possibilty that you will not get the item either.
If you do pay the person, you are not protected in any way, shape or form.
Note that I am not saying "Everyone on MG must pay fees!". I'm saying that if you want to arrange something with a seller regarding a sale, do it in PMs or emails. If you post something here requiring Paypal Gift as a requirement, it will be deleted. It's up to you to cover yourself on the internet, so be smart about it.
