“Very good.”

Written on: 07/07/2014 by Porter410 (1 review written)

I've read review of this place... wow... Really paypal is good, i've been using it for a while and it's my father that recommended it to me. Yes, there's some work to do on their site and the client service is not the best... but i never had problem except those that were my mistake. I use it for gaming and i have no problem with it… Read Full Review

“RUBBISH RUBBISH RUBBISH”

Written on: 20/06/2014 by misslt_x (1 review written)

I would have given paypal no stars but to write a review you have to at least give one, but they deserve none!!!! they hold your money for 21 days so your not allowed to touch your own money, but they still charge you! Plus, they show you a balance thats not even true! Then take out your money all of a sudden putting you in minus. DO NOT USE PAYPAL!… Read Full Review

“very pissed..”

Written on: 16/06/2014 by msteetee87 (1 review written)

Paypal is bull. I ordered on Ebay & when I finally received my order, when I took it out the box it wouldn't charge. After 7hrs it was still the same percentage. I called Paypal after trying to contact the seller with no luck. Was told different things to do to receive my money back by 5 to 6 different reps. & after 10 day I still haven't heard from Paypla or about my money at all!… Read Full Review

“Quite a Disappointment”

Written on: 07/06/2014 by wuMoore317 (1 review written)

Before using PayPal, I thought it was an easy way to make a purchase on ebay. However, I discovered that it is a time-wasting system that doesn't seem to focus on a positive customer experience. There were three main points that caused my complete dislike for PayPal: 1.) To get help on how to create a new password for my account, I had to sign in, which I obviously couldn't do because I didn't know my password. 2.) While trying to receive help by calling PayPal, I was answered by a… Read Full Review

because there rubbish if you sell on ebay for example hold your money for weeks unless you continually complain then you might get it earlier also the top supermarkets in uk have refused paypals offer of letting customers pay in this form predominateley for the same reason as when a customer pays online with a card they receive their money in 3/4 days paypal could only guarantee 10/14 days
also there are often charges for either payer or seller so thats why lots of people dont use and dont like

“Paypal is big scam”

Written on: 16/03/2014 by hamiltonkilts (1 review written)

I run business on eBay . Top rated seller with no complaints. Ome day paypal called me and said your account is in negative balance and you have to pay but they did not tell details of that account. Few days later my business account was limited and linked to some fraudulent account. They say it’s your account and you owe us 1766 pounds. I gave all my ids , business docs to prove my true existence. They review and placed permanent limitation . They froze 4200 in business account. All my eBay… Read Full Review

My account got frozen for no reason. I have no idea why they froze my paypal account. I've been a good paypal member for 6 years. Now, they want me to verify my account by faxing or email documents of my ID or passport. That doesn't sound safe to me. Screw paypal… Read Full Review

I received payment for an online service. After the transaction was complete with myself and the other party, the person who sent me money claimed that it was an unauthorized credit card transaction. after i sent paypal all my documents(receipts, correspondence) they took over a week to decide on the outcome. they reversed the money that was sent to me as a payment. customer service claims that the reversal was valid and the other user was "hacked". they favor people who lie and deceive them… Read Full Review

“Untrustworthy For Pricey Transactions”

Written on: 08/02/2014 by BobbyH- (1 review written)

I want this to serve as a review and a warning for individuals buying phones on eBay using Paypal or BillMeLater services: On November 3, 2013, I purchased a Samsung Galaxy Note 3 SM-N9005 cell phone from a user on eBay, for $688.00. A little over 2 months after owning this device, on the morning of January 31, 2014, I was unable to use the T-Mobile carrier service on this phone, specifically a "Not registered on this network" error message. After trying everything I knew how to resolve what… Read Full Review

Sounds like one of their directors or shareholders trying to 'up' PayPal's low score here.

“Shabby service at point of sale, shabby after service.”

Written on: 30/11/2013 by NOJ_Norfolk (1 review written)

I bought some items off E-Buyer using Paypal, I was charged an additional fee as apparently my address was a Paypal unsecured address. I complained with little success to Paypal. The to prove a point I bought the same items on my credit card direct (the one you PAYPAL debited for the original transaction)) and it went through no problems. So what value did they add? Clearly Paypal and E-buyer have some issues the price doubled just because I used Paypal clearly not a value service to me. I… Read Full Review

“Absolutely Horrible ”

Written on: 28/11/2013

Why should I have to wait 21 days after selling merchandise that Paypal did nothing to facilitate my sales. They took their cut of my money, charged me a fee for making money, made me wait 21 days for it, and then to top it off made me wait an additional 3 days to "verify" my bank account. I'm sorry, majority of us are normal hard working people, not criminals, and I should not have had to wait a month to get the money I rightfully made just because some company wants to hold it and scrap the… Read Full Review

“STILL ON THE PHONE...WORST EXPERIENCE EVER”

Written on: 18/11/2013 by stillhaventreceivedmymoney (1 review written)

I would NOT recommend this to small business owners. The delays it takes to get your money and the lack of customer service support are just the start. I have just now been transferred for the third time without notice because the first two people didn't understand what the issue was so in the middle of the conversation they just transferred me. I am furious to say the least… Read Full Review
