    sorry if this belongs somewhere else, wasn't sure where it fit really

    I've been working in a JV for a few months now and things are going great, but recently my partner requested a new method for paying him because of paypals fees. I would -really- prefer to keep using paypal, so my question is:

    Is it against paypal TOS in a way that can get my account banned, to pay my partner via friends n family?

    or possibly even illegal?

    I have no concerns about him pulling anything shady, so I don't need any form of security on the transaction at all

    It might look suspicious if you have been making payments to the same account as a normal transaction, then all of a sudden paying that account with the friends and family option. If one of you can set up a new paypal account to use that does not have a payment history showing between you two, will be a good idea.

    thanks for the resposne -

    That would only be an issue if one of the two original questions is true; either illegal or against paypal TOS to pay partners their cut

    If that was the case then I'd all around just avoid doing it at all, because I'm running a completely legitimate whitehat business, don't need no stupid decisions to mess things up

    But again, that's only something to concern myself with if it is infact against TOS or illegal, which is what I'm trying to find out to begin with.

    I have no problem answering to paypal and letting them know its all legit etc, as long as it's not something that they'll ban me for if it gets their attention

    It is against the TOS, but they do not ban you.

    At first, they give you warning. If you break the rule again they remove the option of paying as friends and family from your account.

    It's against the TOS, and they can ban you WITHOUT ANY WARNINGS, if you really want to use paypal, tell him that you will pay or share the fees. Also, if your partnair request another payment method, he is maybe just trying to avoid paypal fees because now you trust him. If you are a good customer, just tell him you want to pay only with paypal, and then him to decide if he want loose a good customer (I doubt he will refuse)

    nah its nothing like that, the way we are doing things he literally cant scam me, I'm actually the one with all the control and ability to scam if I so wanted (obviously I'm not going to do that though). There's no concern there

    I'm not a customer of his, its a JV type deal, but I get what you're saying, but theres no concern or fear of such a thing.

    He suggested chase something or the other, some kind of direct deposit to his account or something, I'd just like to stay in paypal if I could to avoid the wait times as money transfers here n there

    I don't have a ton of experience with it but... may be worth paying yourself and the partner's share to your personal bank account, then transferring from there to partner via friends and family or from another paypal account?

    Simply pay him via mass payment. Just make it a specific amount per week (assuming its consistent) and pay the same amount. You pay $1 he is charged 0 in fees.

    Holy crap I had no idea paypal had a "mass payment", just looked into it. you're a damn wizard. as long as this doesnt have some weird

    The reason I dont want to change from paypal is becasue having to xfer money here and there is just going to be a pain in the ass. I accept payment from paypal nearly exclusively so i prefer to stay inside of it just for the ease of use

    I run a completely (okay, 99%) whitehat operation because I do this for a living and dont want to go through the annoyance of things like that, not to mention I need to keep my credentials clean and hold onto my loyal customers. swapping shit like that is begging for trouble at some point

    same as up top, i get paid and function soley in paypal, and don't want the holding period I'm sure it has, nor the extra stuff to manage

    Anyway, I think the mass payment thing solves my situation. I'll report back later just to let yall know

    thanks again Dagreyon
