    Someone just paid me but it says it's a "gift" rather than a "payment" and there was no PayPal fee taken out.

    Were they just trying to be nice or are they a PayPal noob? Do I not have to declare this as income then?

    the only diff is they pay the fee rather than you. Some of my clients (that aren't cheap asses) do that especially when its in the $xxx range, as far as claiming it I'm not sure

    Mass Payments also do not charge the receiver fees but charge the sender $1.

    Cool.

    Yeah it was $xxx.

    Maybe all my previous clients have been assholes who didn't send it as a gift :rofl:

    Some do, some don't. Some don't because they don't know about it some don't because they really want that extra $4.
