An updated tutorial might be in order >.<
Could someone explain the "pay after delivery"? I assume that's not a good option for buying art here.
I've heard of fees, but "sending to friends" says it's free on the website?
I linked my bank account, so is that it? Or do I need to do the paypal balance thing?
/confused noob.....

@LMAO

Pay after delivery has no use in buying digital goods.

When buying artwork, you are paying for goods and services, so that is the option you should choose when you are sending money to the artist.  There are fees involved that the artist is responsible for paying.  Some artists still demand that buyers pay the fees even though they know it's not allowed.  That is where a lot of confusion starts with the fees.  Most artists work the fees into their art so that the buyer doesn't have to worry about it.

It is ill-advised to send as friends & family when paying for artwork due to the chance the Artist could be banned from PayPal and/or fined up to $2,000 for avoiding fees associated with offering PayPal as a payment option.  

You do not need any money in your PayPal balance to start buying artwork.  All you need is a debit/credit card or a bank account attached that gives you access to funds elsewhere.  When you go to send money to an artist, it will ask if you want Paypal to take the money from whichever you have linked to your account.

It sounds to me like your account is already set up and ready to go.

@Queen

Thank you for your reply, it was very helpful. I appreciate taking the time to write it.
Is there somewhere that says it's not allowed (on paypal or GASR), since I've seen a lot of shops say "fees not included" others "+ fees".
When you say say they incorporate the fees so the buyer doesn't have to worry, does that mean they are raising the price to cover it?

No worries.  ^^

Section 4, Paragraph 1

PayPal wrote:
4.1 Receiving Personal Payments. If you are selling goods or services, you may not ask the buyer to send you a Personal Payment for the purchase. If you do so, PayPal may remove your ability to accept Personal Payments.

Section 4, Paragraph 5

PayPal wrote:
4.5 No Surcharges. You agree that you will not impose a surcharge or any other fee for accepting PayPal as a payment method. You may charge a handling fee in connection with the sale of goods or services as long as the handling fee does not operate as a surcharge and is not higher than the handling fee you charge for non-PayPal transactions.
