Yea i dont know whats up with paypal, this all started when i was doing regular buys for another club, people would reimburse me via paypal. one day i get a letter from paypal instruction me to stop using the Gift option or they would cancel my account.
I had a lawyer review paypals terms of service and what i was doing was well within their TOS. They drafted a letter to paypal, which they blew off. "stop doing it or your account will be closed".
i didnt want to waste anymore resources fighting it so we just decided to use money orders, cash or paypal with the fees paid.
