As always, PayPal customer service can be reached by clicking on "Contact Us" and selecting help via phone or email.
See you then!
This week's Global Community Chat is now open and unlocked!
Our moderator staff will be available for the next hour to answer your questions about PayPal, get to know you, or just have idle conversation. We do ask that posts follow the PayPal Community Help Forum Policy and the Forum Guidelines.
Once the session is over, this thread will be locked again, but you will be able to view the content in the forums. This chat is a regular feature every Tuesday from 4-5 PM CDT, so if you missed us this week, please feel free to stop by in the future! We want to get to know you!
Before we get started, there is one item I'd like to remind everyone about. Starting today, we're going to begin archiving content from last year (we do this twice a year - more information located here). All of these posts will remain searchable, viewable and accessible in the Archives
With that out of the way, and since we're all in 2013 now - would anyone like to share their New Year's resolutions? If you didn't make a resolution, what would you like to do differently this year? Let us know!
One of my new year's resolution this year is similar to last year. I'm going to try to read 60 books this year. I'm also going with the standard, eat healthier and exercise every week goals.
It's been a while! I've missed our weekly chat.
This year is my year to find opportunities in adversity. I'm doing my best to find the best in any situation I'm presented with.
I'm also trying to read more. That was also one of my resolutions last year. I did manage to read over 40 books in 2012, and I'm trying for over 50 this year!
I guess I'll ask the first question.
Why isn't the auto sweep mentioned anywhere and requires enabling from PayPal?
Great question! Due to security and business risk concerns, some features require additional vetting for use. PayPal differs from many merchant processors. Typically traditional processors and banks will complete full vetting processes for their merchants at sign up. We want to make it as easy as possible for merchants to get up and running with PayPal. If a merchant needs access to more advanced features, we'll complete additional vetting at that time.
I hope this helps to clarify!
Well, I got the option so I'm happy
Is there any other interesting features? I've had PayPal for 2 years, but never really learned about the more advanced features.
There are a lot of great features out there for PayPal, such as PayPal Here. If you're interested in really digging into what's out there, we would recommend taking a look at X.com. This is our developers website and has documentation on a lot of products and features that we offer (it's also another of my favorite sites).
Long time no see!
This year I think I may go along the lines of Frank and Olivia. However I think starting out small at first will work better for me. I may try reading some instruction manuals for my remotes and maybe work up to a book with limited pictures...
