“awful paypal i will never use again”

Written on: 21/09/2013 by harrijames (5 reviews written)

i have been informed by paypal that my account has been limited (frozen) i only found out as i made a purchase on e bay and paid via paypal and the seller contacted me to ask when was i paying for the item. i contacted paypal who couldnt answer why my account had been limited, so i lodged a complaint, to which i was informed it would take a minimum of 4 weeks for someone to just look at my complaint and it would probably take longer. JUST HOW MANY COMPLAINTS DO PAYPAL GET ???????????????????… Read Full Review

“I am surprised to see the rating to be so low. ”

Written on: 08/08/2013 by rexyrex (1 review written)

I have been using paypal since the start of this year and this site offers so much protection to buyers. I seem to always have problems with my sellers and paypal has been just. I lost a dispute and paypal didn't ask me for evidence which they should have, so I called and complained and they gave me 25$ credits. This type of payment is way safer than paying by your credit card as you won't get a chance to get your money back if you are scammed. Whatever you are not satisfied with, call paypal… Read Full Review

if you are tricked on your credit card you are entitled to a full refund no quibble
i have had many arguments with paypal over money they are rubbish if they were so good why wont big four supermarkets let you pay by paypal ? and most other online websites wont touch paypal people mainly use paypal because most sellers on ebay have to use it give people a choice of recieving money direct to their debit card from buyer bypassing paypal and they would snatch your hand off
that day will come hopefully sooner than later

“DO NOT USE PAYPAL”

Written on: 03/08/2013

I sometimes buy/sell on Ebay and do not accept Paypal. I had major problems with them and an overseas buyer who declared he had paid. It didn't show up on my account and he withdrew from the deal giving me some bad feedback. The bad feedback should have gone to our friends in Paypal. I contacted them and got nowhere… Read Full Review

“Very dissapointed! Avoid these liars and their awful...”

Written on: 01/08/2013 by Yury86 (1 review written)

Try to avoid PayPal for your transactions, it is absolutely unreliable. I was using it both as a seller and a buyer and did not get the service I expected. For sellers it is very frustrating because of their buyer protection policy which is not reasonable at all. They don't care if you are right and if you complied with their policy in full, they will decide each time in favor of buyer. Last time a buyer stated that he received empty and broken package. I made everything as is stated in Seller… Read Full Review

“Stay away from PayPal”

Written on: 20/07/2013

If PayPal were properly regulated they would have been closed down years ago. But they are registered in Luxembourg and can avoid every complaint procedure laid against them. After just a few weeks of online transactions my PayPal account was 'limited' (i.e. frozen) with £500 of my funds withheld. Asked to provide a long list of identifying documents for my company: Certificate of incorporation Proof of trading address Proof of my identity as Director Proof of my own address These… Read Full Review

“DO NOT USE PAYPAL”

Written on: 04/07/2013 by denisedarwent (2 reviews written)

I paid for a holiday rental in London through paypal, great I thought, this is safe. They paid the amount that I asked them to, then credited it back to my account, because they said, my account had been compromised. Then they asked me for documents to prove who I am. I sent them everything, but you guessed it, my paypal account is frozen. Because of them, I lost the house, my deposit. An apology, no!!!, just rude, sarcastic people with an attitude. Beware, don't use paypal… Read Full Review

“Getting a Refund is a huge hassle”

Written on: 29/06/2013 by Sid544 (1 review written)

I purchased a home theatre system on eBay. When I received the product one of the speakers turned out to be defective. I contacted the seller. He said he'll get back to soon. 3 days later no response. I contacted him again, he doesn't' answer. I finally decided to contact Paypal. I filed a dispute with him. I requested a partial refund for the defective speaker. The seller never responded to the dispute. Paypal closed the dispute about 20 days later. I had to wait almost 23 days to get my issue… Read Full Review

i have had the displeasure of using this company and it sucks big time infact i find it the biggest fraudulent money transfer site available, if you use paypal you are playing roulette with ur money as there soul intention is to keep it, they may let a few payments through and you think your fine then as soon as you get any amount of money in ur account they limit it for no reason, then they want everything but dna to prove who u are even though u completed bank verification that says yes this… Read Full Review

“Paypal and Ebay do not care about sellers!!!”

Written on: 20/05/2013

If you are a private seller who hasn't sold anything on eBay for the last week, please think again especially if you want immediate payment from your buyer. I am utterly disgusted by Paypal and eBay's 21 day holding policy. They held my funds for 21days for something I sold on eBay for a reason they could not fully explain to me. I am a seller/buyer with 100% feedback and had been trading on eBay for nearly 10years. After my buyer paid for the item, Paypal left me with no money to send the… Read Full Review

I sold a phone screen by ebay. buyer received the phone checked it and left good feedback. next a week later they claimed that the phone had a cracked digitizer, raised it with ebay who immediately took the money they paid me for the phone out of my paypal account and gave it back to them - no questions asked!!

I have been trying to resolve this problem for over a month.

“every transaction takes ages!”

Written on: 31/03/2013 by Romino (1 review written)

The first thing I don't like about PayPal is that everything takes ages unless you connect your credit card to your PayPal account. It is extremely unsecure and someone can get an access to your whole money. And if you transfer money from your bank account onto your PayPal, it takes at least three days! Another annoying thing is that you are forced to use PayPal on ebay. There is no other way to get the things without being suspicious to other ebayers when you avoid PayPal. So eBay is the only… Read Full Review
