Its really SUCKS.. PAYPAL..30 mins wait before you can talk to real person, 45 mins talked om the phone with that person... turned out:
Just because I change shipping address to my work place for convenience of receiving it, they hold up my paypal account, and Now they said: "my paypal will be closed and all my money will be hold up 180 days".. Damn it.
I wise there is another payment company.

5 or 6 years ago I had them lock up my account with over a grand in it for 90 days, over a $4 dispute!!! I still use them but I no longer keep any cash in my PP account. On the good side, that is really the only issue I have ever had. Not counting the "buyers protection" they taunt, but even that has worked a couple of times in my favor.

I put the fun in dysFUNctional :)

Only had 1 issue with PayPal going way back to the beginning, and it was partly my fault (did not insure package), but since then, nothing but success. DO be very careful of phishing. I did get my eBay account hacked twice due to phishing. Now all types of financial accounts have phishing done to them. Easy way to check is when you get that email that looks exactly like the site, roll your mouse over the link and look at the bottom of the page to see where the link will take you. All of the phishing attacks are taking you to the hackers link. Report it to the fraud dept of your account (forwarding the email, your bank, whatever, will have a fraud email alert to sent these to).

Funny, I just bought something and paid using Paypal, 5 minutes later got a phone call from Paypal to make sure I authorized this payment. I think this was good service.

Paypal is a shafting -- even with the over $5000 preferred client -- whatever lol Yet I continue to use it linked with my CC
all my money will be hold up 180 days
This is one of the first things I learned and I absolutely at no time leave any money in my paypal account. I agree PP has the market cornered and that part stinks

Nothing really beats the good 'ole USPS Money Order. Only the wait for it to show up before you ship the goods.

I have an account that I set up just for pay-pal and nothing else. They once made a mistake and charged me twice for something I bought on e-bay and then told me I had to take it up with the vendor!

I have had only 1 issue in the several years that I have used PP. It wasn't really their fault actually. A buyer filed a claim too early that he did not receive his items. Ad specified a time frame for items to be shipped from the time payment was received as 2-3 days, and 3-4 days priority. The guy got it on like the 6th day. He filed a claim on like the 5th day or something, on the day he got it, he gave me a positive feedback on eBay, but forgot to retract his claim with PP.

Other than that, I rarely keep funds in my PP unless it is a small amount, $100 or less.

Aloha,

yep my online bank links my real checking to my paypal checking. paypal gets my credit cards and paypal account and if I use paypal, I xfer cash from my real personal account into paypal to cover that expense.

I'll be damned if they were able to freeze my real account at their whim and Im bouncing checks and paying fees! I also transfer any surplus paypal $$ outta there also. If its my $$ paypal WONT be able to reach it.

I've never had a serious problem with them other than some CC issues trying to pay for overseas transactions that were quickly resolved. But I am aware of several instances where they lock up accounts for months with no good reason. And even one case where someone I know had his business account with over 10K in it withheld until he got a lawyer to write an intent to sue letter which of course cost him money and time.

I closed my bank account that was my confirmed account for Paypal. They somehow without my knowledge discovered this and hounded me for months to have my new account confirmed which I didn't. I only use PP now to facilitate CC transactions. Without fail every time I do a CC transactions they prompt me to have my bank account confirmed.

How's it going Ghia
