    The "option" you choose to send funds with is not a concern as such. Just proceed with normal chargeback procedures and provide the info asked of you.

    I agree with VenGanZa on this. Although it is harder to get a fast "chargeback" on gifted option the procedure is quite the same and over the last 2 years Paypal has taken leaps and bounds towards digital content sales knowing very well that these days people do LOTS of digital goods exchanges that do not provide physical goods. As a result if you use the chargeback option on something that was MEANT to be a sale they will more likely give you the funds back as there is no proof of product delivery. This method DOES take longer as they require a certain amount of "reasonable" time to pass before honoring a chargeback but at least you are more likely to have a positive outcome this way. With the gifted option your "story" of selling goods better be backed up with SOLID evidence that this was a transaction (They DO frown on the fact that you did not pay the transaction handling fees so they sometimes, especially repeat report filers, decline the claims if the evidence isn't iron clad).
