The REAL Truth about paypal
They can freeze your account for:
Using different computers to log in,
Buying to much,
offering other payment options.
Linking more than 1 ebay account to them.
Scratching your head.
I have heard and seen them do this for no reason, They limit your account so MONEY CAN STILL GO IN, but you CANT TAKE IT OUT.
A disputed account can be limited for 90 days, Then if they feel like it, they will email you telling you that the accounts been closed. WHERES YOUR MONEY????? yep, you guessed it.
They will give you no explanations, no reasons, no evidence of why. ITS YOUR MONEY THEY TAKE.
now people are taking them to small claims courts, and 9/10 times are winning.
Paypals reputation is damaged, and by itself!
You need security of knowing you can access funds when you want, you dont get that with paypal, it can be blocked FOR NO REASON.
Basically, Ebay spams you with paypal info, sign up to paypal, the safest way. yer right. EVEN TO LIST SOMETHING AS BUY IT NOW WITH IMMEDIATE PAYMENT YOU MUST HAVE A PAYPAL ACCOUNT. THATS NOT RIGHT.
USE PAYPAL ONLY IF YOU MUST, AND IF YOU MUST, THEN WAIT UNTILL THE FUNDS ARE CLEARED TO YOUR BANK BEFORE SENDING, OTHERWISE YOU MAY FIND YOU SENT MANY ITEMS, PAID POSTAGE COSTS ETC, FOR PAYPAL TO RETURN ALL OF THE MONEY TO BUYERS. THEN YOUR OUT OF POCKET.
