So, a while back, I set up a paypal link for people to donate money. I was wondering, though. Can people issues chargebacks when they pay money through those links? If not, it might be a better method for me than what I usually do. It would keep both mine and my customers email anonymous, it would prevent people from making arbitrary refunds, and it wouldn't (to my knowledge) make Paypal suspicious the way repeated gifts do. What are your thoughts, if any?

EDIT: When I looked it up, it looks like people who send donations via paypal can still make chargebacks, even with amounts as little as $1. I had another idea, though. A while ago, I'd thought about letting people pay with points, thinking I could redeem them for money. I know this works for premium content, but I don't know yet if it works for DA's commission system. Anyone want to help me test that?

Previous commissions that still need to be finished:
1. :iconannakatan: (sketching)
2. Anonymous
3. :iconlary6420:
(4). :iconannakatan:

I do no take requests. Commissions are closed.

It's Latin commonly used as filler text in formatting.

Well, as for when I'll be doing commissions publicly, the answer is likely "a long ass time". In light of recent events, I'm really reconsidering who I trust to take money from over paypal. I plan to only take commissions from trusted, frequent customers with a good history of paypal interactions, and only after all or most of my current commissions (made from before I stopped taking new commissions) are finished.

TL;DR: Not any time soon.

Well, I am a trustworthy customer and I wouldn't scam you or anything like that! I commissioned and payed some people before with trustworthy and fair payment methods like real money.

I'm sure you are trustworthy, but I'm playing it safe until I can come up with a better, safer way to do business with people.

No. I do not take requests. I say so on the top of this page and in the description of nearly every image I post.
