  3. I have imposed a new requirement today limiting who can start and receive private conversations. This is in an effort to thwart scammers who have a zero post count but private message others offering to sell their licenses. The restriction is not strict, a user must post at least one (1) post in the forum before being allowed to start and/or receive private conversations. Read Forum Post

Never send money as a friend or gift!

    Just a friendly reminder to NEVER send money for a license to a "Friend" or as a "gift".

    Sellers may ask buyers to send money for a license as a friend in PayPal and other payment systems. This is to circumvent the fees that are applied. The problem is, when you send this money as a friend, you have absolutely no recourse. It cannot be disputed or refunded. It is hard enough to try and get your money back when you send it regularly why make things harder?

    And, for the love of all things holy, please ask for license #'s and check that license # with the respective developers to determine the legitimacy of the license.

    That concludes today's public service announcement.

    Here's a screenshot of when you're sending payments via PayPal. The red rectangle is to help outline that the "I'm paying for goods and services" should be the selected option when sending payments to a seller. I hope this help you out folks.

    You should only send it as a friend if it's exactly that... The person is a friend (event then, friends can rip you off....)

    If the seller isn't wanting to pay fees... Then can you really trust them?

    Where do you report scammers/thieves?

    Underneath a user's post you should see some blue text that says report. If you have trouble finding it I will post a screenshot later showing how to report a user

    I'd be wary of taking Paypal payments these days for software. Paypal say how great they are at helping you sell digital goods but you are not covered under their Paypal Protection..

    Bank transfer is probably the best way but then I suppose they could still dispute it later down the line.

    That's no longer the case.
    Paypal offers full buyer protection on both intangible and tangible goods now. Including though not limited to: services *such as hosting etc.
