PAYPAL does what it wants with your money - beware!

I have been having problems with Paypal for a few weeks now. I changed bank accounts, tried to update the paypal account, what a farce! You ask a question on the help section and there is no question similar to yours to help you find your answer, you can keep typing in different questions all day, you'll still get the same stupid questions that you don't want to ask, and the answers are irrelevant. When emailing them, it is just the same, they will give you a stupid answer to your question, such as "log into your account" etc. arrrrrrrrgh!

Here is the best bit! I have tried to put my new bank details, only to be told by Paypal that my bank is NOT ALLOWED to have any links with Paypal.. Hmm! I wonder why? Maybe my bank knows something that I don't? I'm going there today to find out.

I have also 'just sold an item' on eBay, guess what? I can't access the money to send the parcel off. Why? Because they have decided to put my money 'on hold for 30 bloody days!" (my words not theirs) I am so fed up now. (I wouldn't mind, but I have just started up a business and relied on Papyal to get me moving on. No chance! (I give up!) I've no energy left!

I have taken everything off eBay that I was selling, and going elsewhere, because the 2 together are as bad as each other... reminds me of the government, 'coalition' springs to mind. Neither cares what it's doing to you as long as they have your money - "Stay Well Away" find other means of selling.

Inconvenient and time consuming

I really hope Paypal actually IS SAFE, because, it sure is inconvenient to have to deal with their security words and stuff!
I like to shop on ebay, so I have to use Paypal, but I didn't like it one bot to be fair!

Stay well away, Paypal does not protect online purchase as advertised....

Recently purchase an item online, totally not as described and not working in any way.
I first tried contacting the seller to resolve the issue, having not had any luck after 7 days I decided to escalate to paypal claim scheme.

Again no response from the seller it was then escalated for paypal to review.

Paypal outcome was because I have received the goods they have favoured the sellers on this occaision... WHAT a joke!

Won't be using PayPal ever again, we use them in thinking we are protected for online purchases etc... but it seems they are another company just seeking to con paypal fees out of everyone....

Spoken to my credit card company the same situation and have been advised they would have authorised a Charge back on basis of my situation above.

So closed my PayPal account which I have been with for over 10 years, and now will use my MBNA credit card company.

Take my advice and do the same before you get hit hard....!

WORST EXPERIENCE EVER!!!!!!

review for the PhotograHER... I purchased a photograph pkg from this person who said she was a professional photographer. Her studio was a white sheet in her living room. She had no suggestion for pictures, my daughter looked up baby posses on Pentrise during the "photo" session. When we reviewed these picture on her website we could see her childrens toys in the background of the "photos" she took. She told my daughter
to leave the pacifier in her newborns mouth because they are cute??? Once she got my money that was it. She will not refund! I wouldn't waste my daughters time to redo pictures because of the terrible experience. Very sad because this was a gift of newborn pictures to my daughter for her first child. The worst experience EVER!!!!!!

Paypal Stole my money??!?!

Last month i transferred a small sum of money to my new paypal account.
the lady in my bank told me, within 12-24hr it will be transferred, and i believed her, (BIG MISTAKE)
I waited a whole month for that transfer... when i contacted my bank i was sure that it was their mistakes, so i came prepered, with all my paypal banking information. but my bank DID transfer my money, (+they had proof of the transaction)
I got in touch with an PayPal employee and he assured me that there where no problems and he would take care. when it was fixed he would call me right back, I waited for the call for hours.... (A Danish guy called Micael)

Worst banking experience EVER!
Every body needs to know that paypal steels your money if you trust em!!!

Sellers - Beware of PayPals Unscrupulous Business Practices--Definitely not a PAL!!!

As a Corporate Pilot, I have seen; the Good, the Bad and then PayPal!! This organization goes beyond Worst of the Worst. First, charging for every conceivable fee..known to mankind. Second, having limitations on the number of transactions. Third, poor quality Customer Service with a Nasty Attitude.

Attempting to use PP while selling Airline Mileage has proven to be a Nightmare on Elm Street! Once the transaction has occurred, receiving funds is a Nightmare!! Receiving multiple funds on a daily basis Does NOT constitute PP to Act as Big Brother in monitoring account. Furthermore, be sure to read Super Fine Print!!
Fees...Fees...and more Fees!!
PP will not only limit funds to be withdrawn but will seize monies and hold for 6 mos. without reason or logic. Highly recommend to all those individuals --Avoid PP at all Costs!! This Organization would be compare to the NAZI Regime!!

Running around my finger to get to my thumb.

I can't comment on Paypal's customer service because I have not used it, however, as a software developer I think their interface is just plain awful. I already have issues trying to figure out how the heck to sell something on ebay but add paypal to the mix and you have a shit pot of confusion. It took me over an hour of researching to figure out how to withdraw my damn money. The website and the app are not intuitive, not user friendly, and totally inefficient. To confirm my bank account, Paypal has to debit and credit tiny random change to my account. This is 2014 but I feel like Paypal was built in 1996 and never updated.... I wish I had another choice.

If I had a choice I would go somewhere else to do my internet business

I was without an internet connection for almost a year. During that time my virus protection program expired. They sent me several E-Mail reminders which of course I could not read. Not getting a respond or authorization from me to extend their services (with no internet connection how could they?) they took it upon themselves to pay themselves out of my Pay Pal account. Pay Pal not having the authorization from me to pay them, paid them anyway. Fortunately there was little money in the account at the time so Bitdefender did not nick me for the full amount they ask for, but they did drain my account to zero. I guess I am lucky that it wasn't someone who said I owed them a lot of money. What would Pay Pal have done then? My old grand daddy was right, "Never Trust Anybody". Lesson learned!!!

Not recommendable!

I always liked to use this platform to buy second hand articles in the internet and I'm doing this till this day, because it is really safe and easy to use. So there is nothing bad to say about paying via paypall
BUT! If you want to sell items you won't be happy with paypal. Read yourself into there terms and conditions and you will be shocked that they are able to take more of your money than you actually want to pay them.

Take care

Cheers!

If your a small time company...

If your a small time company... avoid using PayPal where possible. If you fall into their 'risk assessment' (which most new companies will) it can seriously break your company.
Our company nearly bankrupted due to the funds that were 'held' within our first few months of trading, unable to take the profits we had made to further expand and pay current costs for the company for at least 3 months. We had to seriously consider selling the kidneys from our co-workers (specifically a guy named Luke) to make up for the locked money.

Awful company but you have no other choices!

This company can do as they please and seem to be relatively unregulated. They randomly hold funds for up to 21 days even if you provide tracking info and receive positive feedback from the buyer. They will also refund money out your account directly to the buyer without ensuring that the buyer has returned the item. Surely if sellers have to provide tracking info to get money then the buyer must provide tracking info before refunds will be transferred?

Most of the internet forums I have checked are inundated with complaints about this company and its practices but nobody seems to be able to do anything about them and I think they know it.

I would say avoid but if you want to buy and sell on eBay you really have no other choice than to use them.

FALSE CLAIMS OF BUYER PROTECTION!

WOW! I purposely used PayPal when I was conducting business online because my son wanted to purchase from a company that I was not familiar with. My young son spent his own money that he had saved from birthdays and holidays, $208, to purchase a Minecraft upgrade. He felt that the Minecraft server was reputable and that the benefits to the upgraded membership was going to be worth his life savings. 30 minutes after I paid for the upgrade, a moderator from the server stated that they were going to "jail" him for 12 hours. An hour later he was told he would remain without access for 7 days. My red flags were screaming loud so I went to PayPal and charged back the purchase. After all, he no longer had access to the site and server. When my chargeback was filed, they reported that due to their No Tattling policy, he would be banned for life. YOU WANT TO KNOW WHY THEY SO BLATANTLY DISREGARDED ANY OF OUR CONCERNS???? ***PAYPAL REFUSED TO RETURN OUR $$$ CLAIMING THEY COULD NOT ASSIST SINCE THIS WAS AN INTANGIBLE PURCHASE!!!!*** The company we purchased from KNEW this, so they owed us no service, no access, no response, no respect! PayPal empowered them with their 'intangible is untouchable' policy.

Let that be a lesson to anyone who is making virtual purchases. In today's society when we have so many memberships, mods, servers, etc, it is INTOLERABLE that PayPal claims they can not assist with intangible purchases! This was a hard lesson for an 11 year old boy, but I feel it will make him a savvy shopper for the rest of his life. I BEG THAT YOU RECONSIDER EVER USING PAYPAL!! WHAT A SCAM!!!

Paypal IS A CRIMINAL OPERATION

Paypal needs negative stars. Their offers of Seller and Buyer protection are fraudulent. A customer contacted me to purchase a dress from my store and wanted it sent to Australia. She paid by Paypal. Once she receives the dress she immediately files with Paypal to get her money back and Paypal removes the entire amount of money from my account automatically. It cost $45 to send the dress to her b/c she wanted express delivery. That amount was also removed even though the post office has that money now not me. So Paypal says customer filed dispute and they are holding the money. Even though I don't offer refunds on formal wear, I just had near the same experience with another buyer that they filed a dispute and then returned a used and damaged dress back and still got their full money back even though I had to go get a notary and file papers with Paypal. I eventually got my money back on that one though, but I think they did as well. So I decided on this one I would just agree to refund the cost of the dress minus shipping since, as I said, that money went to the post office. So I offered a $195 refund. She accepted the refund and Paypal automatically gave her the money back rather than holding the money until she proved she mailed the dress. She immediately went on our Facebook page and left us a message that she was not sending the dress back.. So I call Paypal and let them know and they say nothing they can do! As if they can't just go in and debit her account as they did mine. Believe me Paypal will go in your account and take money out anytime they want, I have had it done several times. If no money is in the Paypal account they just give you a negative balance and let you know they will be removing that amount from whatever account you have linked to your Paypal account. So I said you are supposed to protect me to as the seller I was just agreeing to the return process which you encourage members to do and pretty much force it since you had already debited my account for the full amount. Now since she has the money I am pretty much like the buyer who did not receive the item I payed for. Still no help. Nothing they can do! Really where else can this happen? I can't buy a refrigerator from Best Buy then go in there and say I want my money back but I am also going to keep the refrigerator. Business owners it is so tempting to accept Paypal when you have a willing buyer but don't do it as you are giving up all of your rights and your return policy means nothing. In fact you are taking a very big chance that you will be paying the postage to send someone a free product.

Sometimes it's your only choice, but BE WARY!

A scumbag service that is, at times, your only option of payment on the internet. You'll use it for years, thinking it's the greatest thing ever and that you're so glad you have an account.

Then one day, something horrible will happen, and you will despise Paypal and realize what a scumbag service it is, backed by scumbag policies. It WILL happen to you eventually, I promise you.

Whatever you do don't trust or use PayPal

PayPal is one of the most untrustworthy organizations on the planet Earth today. The company supports fraudulent activity by sitting on their hands when buyers and sellers misbehave, I have seen this happen and have had problems both buying and selling using PayPal and their attitude is appalling when there is a problem. You are much better off avoiding PayPal because when things go wrong you will most likely be very disappointed with the outcome, not always of course but more often than not. Just use traditional payment methods and be happy. Whatever you do never use PayPal.

SCAMMERS, AVOID THEM COMPLETELY!

DO NOT USE PAYPAL. Unfortunately if you use eBay you cannot help it. They WILL steal your money. Terrible company with terrible customer service but because they are so close with eBay you have no option but to use them. It amazes me how a company like this are still allowed in business. They are a law to themselves and do not care about there customers. Every single time you try to deal with there customer services they always seem more keen on arguing with you and proving there point from "there rules" instead of solving the issue. DO NOT TRUST THEM WITH YOUR MONEY!

Worst payment processor ever.

Keep away from this company. I've been through alot with them recently. I dont want to talk about the horrors I've been through here but in the end I had to pay an international lawyer to get a part of my money back. They extoreted me, stole my money and gave back only 80% . I had to wait 7 months to get part of my money back. This was all money from my business. I had to close my store and so on.

There is better alternatives out there.
I recommend BTC & LTC.

Paypal"s assurance that your are safe shopping using paypal is bogey.

It is only based on putting the seller"s money on hold until he the seller decide to refund your money. Paypal will decide to refund you if and only if the seller has a paypal balance.
If the seller does not have a balance paypal can use to blackmail him you the buyer are in the the water.
You need to understand that paypal is very cheap on refunding buyers themselves. You do not absolutely have an insurance with them if they cannot take the money from the seller.

They will even blackmail or accuse you of doing illegal actions while using paypal and then threaten you. That is what they are doing to me right now with the $CAN 240.00. I invested in a cell phone. I have saved all the documentation as proof. I use to do $10000/year business with them. It all over. They won"t see my money again.
