Requirements for Cash-Basis Payment via PayPal
In order to receive our cash-discount, and thus receive
a 3% discount implicit in all our pricing, your payment to us must arrive
such that we receive 100% of the proceeds. That is, no fees are attached
to your payment that reduces our net receipt of your payment.
This payment describes two way that you can use PayPal
to send cash-basis payments.
Note that these procedures became necessary after PayPal
changed its long-standing policies on 3 June 2009 such that most payments
for merchandise are now assessed a fee no matter how they are funded. See
PayPal's policy by searching www.PayPal.com
for Policy Updates.
Method 1: Pay the Fee Yourself
As part of your decision as to how to fund your payment, you have the
option, of course, to pay the fee which PayPal might impose to transfer
payment. You're welcome to do so, and it avoids all other problems. Simply
select the choice to pay the fee when you declare that you are
"sending money to family or friends."
But we presume that you are looking to pay the lowest possible price if
you're reading this page. So...
Method 2: Send Your Payment as a Payment to Family & Friends
If you do all of three things, your payment will likely arrive in full and without fees.
If it does, we will regard it as a cash-basis payment, and you will
receive the cash discount for that amount of the payment.
- Send your payment to CashPayments@FineGames.com,
- Characterize your payment as "I'm
Sending Money to Family or Friends" (rather than for Goods
& Services), and
- Fund your payment from a bank account or funds already in your
PayPal account (and not thru a card of any kind).
Realize that you are following these procedures for your own benefit.
And that one of the implications of sending "personal" payments
is that PayPal's Buyer's Protection does not apply. However, Fine Games
has always worked hard to resolve the very few problems we experience in
satisfying our customers. We have always suggested working & trusting
us as your first avenue to problem-solving.
Other Ways to Send a "Cash" Payment
