you guys advocating for paypal introducing a safer family and friends policy are forgetting, hat that would be introducing the possibility for the buyer the scam the seller. cause you know, you pay the product with F&F and then when it arrives, you open a dispute and lie about not getting anything, or getting an empty box. in fact i have no idea how paypal is coping with such cases even if the transaction was G&S. i mean i could pay G&S and ask for money back lying about nothing being in the box or just some filler to make the weight look realistic. bottom line is, i know cross-border commissions are a **bleep**, cause for example if you buy something in the US from a European seller with G&S, you will find your seller asking for an extra 5,4%. now that is a huuuuge toll on a 500USD purchase, the shipping of which is already costing you an arm and a leg. but at the end of the day, you gotta ask yourself is zero safety worth it? cause paypal aint never gonna be playing along with you trying to cut corners and deprive them from their commission. what were you guys thinking?

hi, actually i have two questions: 1. I received money. How do I verify it was sent as Family and Friends? after currency conversion it seems a lot less, than i was calculating with 2. my bank account tied to Paypal is not an EUR account. if in my Paypal account i set EUR as default working currency, and somebody wires me money in the same currency, so in EUR and as Friends and Family, will the exact same EUR amount appear in my account without any currency conversion loss? thanks a lot.
