Am I the only one receiving random funds from Chinese people?
  Not quote sure what this is all about? Got an email that I received money, but why?? I appreciate it, but why not leave a note to what it for?

looks like it was for a purchase, he'll probably file a claim and get it back...

And from all people accidentally send it to my email? Or my cell number?
  was wondering if he's willing to send me money why do it as a purchase versus friends and family.
  I guess I'll send him a note telling him if you want to send me money next time around send it as friends and family.

I had similar for a few cents each, very odd.

i bought a  few switches ($1K) from a website not realizing it was a (Chinese) scam and i paid via PP , the shipper didn't sent anything so i opened a claim on PP to get my money back, then the shipper sent me a plastic contraption from china (in order to submit a tracking number to PP hoping to win the case) so i told PP this is not what i ordered and now in order to get a refund they want me to ship this toy back to china

(i opened a dispute with amex, however i dont want to have issues with PP)

do i have to ship this back? is there any other way to get a refund?

If someone is paying me for professional services (on a regular basis), is it against the terms to use the friends and family option in order to avoid the fee? Or do they just lose out on purchase protection?

You do a favor for a friend they can pay you with friends and family.

 The only reason to do for good and services would be if you want purchase protection.

 For the same price you can use Chase QuickPay or zelle, venmo, Google pay..
 List goes on for free services to send cash.
 So unless you're dealing with goods for sale don't bother paying the fee.

My question is if it is against Paypal's terms. People ask if they can pay me with PayPal. I don't wanna eat the fee, and I don't wanna tell them to cover the fee, but I don't know if I feel comfortable asking them to use the friends and family option if it's against Paypal's terms.

If you're being paid for a service why the need to go through PayPal?

  The reason why one would select goods and services would it be to get the purchase protection.

   If you enjoy paying fees go for it.

 There's no one forcing you to use goods and services while you can use friends and family no problem.

 Don't see why it would be the terms & conditions that you have to use Goods for sale in paying for a service and if you decide to use friends and family and take the risk you're not allowed to?

 Meaning you're not tied down to PayPal, you can use any service out there if you're just looking to send cash.
  With that being said look at it as if it's a friends-and-family payment.
  You can use zelle to send and receive payments for free.

I know I have other options, I'm just saying that some of my customers prefer paypal, for whatever reason.

Anyway, I found this in the User Agreement:
"You must not use the “send money to a friend or family member” feature in your PayPal account when you are paying for goods or services."

Not sure what to make of that.

Why because they're losing out on money they can make?
