“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

“As A business User Your Money is not safe with paypal”

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. Eventually after much persuasion and information provided by myself they finally to release my funds but would keep 20% of all my transactions for 90 days. As you can appreciate for some small business like mine this was a large dent in my cash flow and therefore I decided to remove the pay pal… Read Full Review

“Avoid at all costs!”

Written on: 21/03/2013

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

“PayPal Works for Me - No Issues Yet!”

Written on: 19/03/2013 by LeslieBarker (3 reviews written)

I've used PayPal for years now and haven't had any major issues. Eventually I had to give them my SS number so I could withdraw more than $500 monthly (lame) but that's the hoop you have to jump through. I use it for work payments, sending money to family, selling items (personal stuff like Craigslist) and really find it to be simple and effective. They offer a PayPal debit card which is great along with other items. Pretty cool for my daily use, but may not be for everyone. I've heard… Read Full Review

“Bad Customer Service”

Written on: 17/03/2013 by yeechyan (1 review written)

Recently I had very bad experience with Paypal. There was a dispute where the seller was cheating me by sending a thumb drive rope instead of a harddisk. I complained to Paypal but they asked me to send back the item in order to get a refund and I had to pay the postage myself. I wrote to them several times and even provided photos of the items as evidence but they turned a deaf ear on me. I stronly recommend anybody against using Paypal!… Read Full Review

“Paypal owes me $$$ Hundreds of dollars!”

Written on: 14/03/2013 by keyotu (1 review written)

I have had the unfortunate displeasure of having no other choice but to use Paypal for online transactions because I am an international user. I sold hair items online on ebay about 5 years ago made a couple hundred dollars then all of a sudden my account was under investigation and my funds were held. Never received my money, however I still receive an invoice from ebay saying that I owe them the same amount for selling fees as the amount which they stole from me. Ironic huh? So I let that go… Read Full Review

“Worst company I have ever seen - will take money at random”

Written on: 14/03/2013

PayPal are an awful company, and your funds with them WILL BE AT RISK, regardless of how genuine you are. Why? For a start they will randomly freeze accounts (millions of them), shut down businesses cash-flow by deciding to keep your money for 180 days, and will refuse to discuss there reason for keeping your money. This has and continues to happen to power-sellers with 10+years selling history, and anyone you can think of. Worst of all, they hide in Luxembourg and do not follow any rules… Read Full Review

“PayPal; Unfairly favouring the buyer since 1998.”

Written on: 13/03/2013

My advice to all my friends is to NEVER use PayPal. Find an alternative site that accepts card or another means of payment. Amazon have profited quite severely from my opinion of PayPal and Ebay by forcing you to have a PayPal account to sign up alienate a great number of people. So, why do I rate it so poorly? Well, let me share my experience: - I sold £400 worth of online content. Now it doesn't take a genius to realise that selling online content provides no "receipt" - and obviously… Read Full Review

“Paypal does not deserve 1 star!”

Written on: 27/02/2013

Paypal is the only bank in the world that steals money. I fulfilled all the requirements of the paypal resolution centre on 8th Dec 2012. In the mistaken belief that Paypal was a bank and therefore trustworthy I allowed my students to pay through Paypal. In Feb 2013 it took 11 minutes after I received a 1300euros for paypal to freeze my account. The student payments increased my account above a threshold that had been dealt with on 8th dec 2012. MY account is frozen until I send them… Read Full Review

“Avoid like a plague”

Written on: 25/02/2013 by MarcFloyd (1 review written)

On Friday I have tried to send payment of £70, which was stopped for no reason. I called Customer Service and have been told it was because I had no funds on my PayPal account. I added funds and tried again. Again, payment was stopped. I called PayPal and have been told it is technical issue, not you security system issue and will be referred to the technical department. On Saturday I have received email saying it is security issue but you do not know what kind of security issue. The… Read Full Review
