I’ve been using PayPal for nearly as long as they’ve been around or at least as long they were still in the countdown preparing to launch full steam ahead into the financial world. As I write this review I can’t help but think back to the days before PayPal and I just shake my head. Does anyone else remember the days of getting a call or text (if you even had a cellphone yet) saying “I just put an envelope in the mailbox with a check for you. Please let me know when you get it so I know it didn’t get lost in the mail.”? Even better was finally getting a check and the joys of going to YOUR bank, no matter how quick & easy or a total pain the location was, to either cash the check or deposit it and wait for it to post. I am totally aging myself but I remember all of that and it was a pain. Now I know there are all sorts of new pay and get paid apps out there, and yes I have an account with one of them, but I don’t trust any of them the way I trust PayPal. I may have another for the much needed flexibility in today’s world but I always make the initial payment or payment request attempt by asking if *they* have a PayPal account and I don’t see that ever changing. And as long as PayPal continues to stay competitive with their features, then I have absolutely no reason to go a different path.
Better then a Bank
I have no had PayPal for at least ten years and love it!!!! It keeps excellent records for you all your history and with whom. I’ve read some of the negative remarks and I have an extremely hard time believing many of them. Yes that they might of spend some time on the phone; well guess what nothing in this world happens at a snap of the finger. Yes even with banks and Comcast you can spend 2-3 hours on the bank; as long as your issue has been resolved. Anytime I have called PayPal for anything they have always resolved my issue. They have opened cases for me and have never taken a penny; they do NOT Charge for that so stop lying. Also if someone has sent you money and then called and filed a case against it and their bank, yes you have to deal with the person who did that and not PayPal. Just as any bank receives a fraudulent transaction and gives back the money so does PayPal. So why do you think if someone called in on you and said it is a fraudulent transaction you get to keep the money? Hence you have to deal with the person who owes you money. I completely understand people love to complain and make an elephant out of a mouse. However, any issue I have ever had was dealt with amazing customer service.
PayPal & me, a love/hate relationship.
I’ve had paypal myself since around 2001 when I really started using eBay to buy. And bought I did. Then I started selling. Fine, no problems. Then randomly, my account would get held. This is a huge problem when you’re a seller & not too many alternatives. Then my niece who is Intellectually disables and on SSDi moved in with us & wanted to sell with me. So I had her open a PayPal for her & I to use. She did & we were selling for 3 years, no problem. I pretty much controlled the account as far as invoicing etc. She had her own bank & savings account. My mother & she had a blowout. Overnight she moved in w/her mom. They managed to get all 2000 in savings & her ckg overdrawn so they closed her checking & empty savings. For her ssdi, I added PayPal direct deposit. Then her mom told her to open a Green Dot money card. All the sudden right after ssdi went in, her account is in resolution. I call ed, we sent all her docs in. One month later a very nice man finally released her acct & said the problem was Green Dot. They have issues. Now though they put withdrawal limitations on me. Ugh. At least we can ship & use cash plus card. They were very nice each call though.
