“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 wouldnt even give them a star but i had to ”

Written on: 02/06/2013

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!! The digitizer was not damaged before sending out, i have photos to prove this. Although ebay didn't want to know. I have since read that if the whatever the customer claims, PayPal… Read Full Review

“Their customer service sucks”

Written on: 02/05/2013

I have been trying to resolve this problem for over a month. I split my time between Paris and US, yet when I use my paypal account I get a message saying it cannot be mailed to a country where my account did not originate, yet it works on some items. I've been pleading for an explanation. Wrote 4 times, still no answer! … Read Full Review

“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

Written on: 22/03/2013

In February 2011 pay pal decided to place my account on Limitation giving me limited access and I was asked to provide my up to date financials before they would consider releasing access to my funds.

“Avoid at all costs!”

If you have a fraud issue paypal won't help you, even as in my case I ordered goods which I never received; paypal dutifully paid a company with my cash and gave no help in assisting me recover mine. So buyer beware, this company will not help and do not protect the cardholder just the supplier… Read Full Review

“Using Paypal to sell an item is a joke!”

Written on: 20/03/2013

We sold an item and had the money go to Paypal. They would not release it for 21 days which held up the transaction. Then when they finally allowed it to be released, we wanted it transferred to our bank account. IT WILL TAKE 3-4 DAYS???? Funny how when you buy something they take the money immediately but to give you money it now takes 3-4 days. On top of that, they took $10 for the transaction. As soon as this is done, GOOD RIDDANCE PAYPAL. They are horrible awful and I would never… Read Full Review
