Hello everyone,

 

I want to pay a gift with paypal account and it doesn't work.

I can buy for myself with paypal but unavailable to pay a gift. 

 

Can you help me with that ?

 

Thank you by advance.

If I remember correctly, scammers were setting up sites to sell Gold, receiving payments from the naive players and the scammers were using PayPal accounts to buy the Gold for those naive players using the gift option. Within 6 months the scammers would then back-charge WG using the PayPal 6 month refund system and claim all the money back.

This locked all the accounts of those naive players and the scammers rode off into the sunset with all the money as well as leaving WG with a huge bank charge bill, which ran into the hundreds of thousands of euro.

So, the option to use PayPal to buy gifts was removed to stop scammers selling Gold.

 

You can buy the gift option directly using the credit card.
