    hi,

    I am a service provider, and people purchase online on my website. Today i recieved an order for the package which is worth 119$. However, the client sent the payment of only 0.02 dollars. Which paypal took as paypal fee, and total payment is 0 dollar. I checked my product page, and the value is set correctly as 119$.

    This is what shows up on my paypal.
    ---------------------------------
    Total amount:
    $0.02 USD
    Fee amount:
    -$0.02 USD
    Net amount:
    $0.00 USD
    -------------------------

    So, i want to know if its a paypal error, or client used some shoddy technique to get free service?


    Thanks.

    It's a blackhat technique to get free stuff, there are threads here about it. Not 100% sure, but I think they're using javascript to exploit the type of paypal button you are using. Here is one of those threads, I think it is the kind of exploit they are using.
