What is PayPal goods and services?

If you make a payment in PayPal, the site wants to know the type of transaction you’re making so it can offer appropriate protections. In short, you have to choose between PayPal’s ‘goods and services’ and ‘friends and family’ options.

As the names suggest, the two are for different things. While PayPal friends and family is for known contacts who trust each other and keeps costs to a minimum, ‘goods and services’ is for those buying from a business or a complete stranger selling something via an online marketplace.
