Paypal Changes for 2022

If I understand this correctly, Paypal, along with all on-line payment sources like Venmo, etc. will now be sending out 1099 forms for all payments totaling $600 you receive in 2022 for goods or services.  The only way around this is to use Paypal friends and family for payment which eliminates any buyer protections.  Is everyone aware of this?

The only result will be fake bills of sale de facto.

Lotso luck not paying tax on gains because of amateur status.

Leave PayPal out of this PITA of them too.
