This is my review on paypal at the moment, the money process takes to long, it isnt good for people who dont really use computers but just show on ebay when someone sends a payment you should be able to have it transfer to your bank account straight away, i once had a payment refunded to me which usually goes straight to your debit card, they have changed it now so it sits in your paypal funding balance and you have to manually transfer it.
number 2 - As some of you know paypal used to be owned by a seperate company than ebay, ebay bought paypal which now they have put fees up, i find it absolute greed that when you sell something on ebay they charge you like 10% of what you sell i sold an iphone on there for £255 and i was charged £25.58 plus £4 on paypal, sometimes ebay aint worth selling on from where paypal is concerned.
Number 3 - Payment holds - I received £91 worth of sold stuff on ebay once to cover my overdraft i went in to for petrol, to visit my daughter in hospital when she wasnt well in hospital, so i wanted to withdraw the money and i had to wait for 21 days until the muppets on ebay left you feedback on ebay which sometimes they dont took me 3 weeks to release the funds then 3 days to receive them to your bank not including week ends.
Number 4 - Customer service, hardly anyone who speaks abit of english on there typical! take you ages to get through to them and even after all the things you discuss with them they tell you to contact ebay by phone, 0845 number of course
Number 5 - Email Support - I emailed them twice regarding lifting my payment hold as i received feedback on all items, twice they didnt reply and the 3rd time took them a week by then i already released the funds
