It has come to my attention that Paypal has changed certain policies. I will have to look into how exactly this will change things, but if we aren't careful, it seems Paypal could charge us over two grand in "damages" for sending a payment wrong.
This tumblr post explains it in a bit more detail. grimphantom.tumblr.com/post/11…
As i said, I am unsure exactly what this means, but if you have an outstanding commission with me, please hold off payment until I sort this out. we may need to discuss alternate payments.
Update: I am still unsure of exactly how the policy changes will affect payments on Paypal. However, so far as I can tell, it may be safe to no longer send payments as "gifts". This is just an initial assessment, but it might be safest to send payments under "Services" as described on this page: www.paypal.com/us/webapps/help…
It will mean I get charged a small fee myself, it's better than risking a two grand fine.
If anyone has any additional info, please let me know.
Also, I found the options settings on this thing!
