Re: PayPal sucks

Worst faking service of them all. Have been a verified account user for over 10 years but have used it sparingly. Why? Because I don’t think I’ve ever been able to get any transfer approved and in some instances had cash stuck in PayPal which they wouldn’t let me transfer out. Worst company, worse service - short this terrible stock. So many other payment options that are infinitely more user friendly and create a significantly better user experience. Venmo, Chase Quickpay, etc. Please get the word out that this service is outdated and terrible

Re: PayPal sucks

I also have been a verified member for 10 years. I have bought/sold over the years, and never a single issue. Not one complaint from a buyer, ever. Nor have I have I ever filed a complaint. Seamless. 
  Until 2017....
I sold camera gear to KEH camera.  Paypal flagged it as suspicious and held my payment for nearly a week!!  
I vowed to never use PP again.  Until this week, I thought...maybe after 2 years it wouldn't be bad.  I sold a camera through a website, I've had over 30 transactions there..never a single issue.  The buyer sent money....it was put on hold..from Monday..till Thursday.  Finally released.
  I attempted to make a purchase from B&H Photo (established retailer for over 50 years). Paypal put my payment on hold.  What's more, I'd used a credit card for the balance of the purchase....and now that part of my credit is on hold. 
  So...the purchase was declined by the merchant..due to Paypal...and my credit is tied up on another card.  So I couldn't make a purchase, can't access my funds..that were available early that day, can't use my credit card.
  Paypal said the transaction was flagged..as suspicious.  

Really...?  I'm flagged TWICE..in one week?    

Once I get my money out of Paypal, I will never....ever...ever...use them again.  There are plenty of other ways to buy/sell/transfer money.  It's strange how so many people seemed to get payments (sending/receiving) held...these days.  I don't know what's going in with Paypal, but as soon as I can, I will get out.  
 Ten years..not one single issue..till 2 years ago.  
BTW, I am not, nor ever have been a merchant, lived in same place for last 25 years.

Re: PayPal sucks

PayPal banned me for a $10 transaction. I have had my account with them for YEARS! I disputed a $10 charge because the merchant would not confirm with me what it was for. Once I got it resolved I let PayPal know and I was still BANNED! for $10. If someone wanted to scam it would be for more than that. I told them to just delete my profile and somehow the ban s lifted. Imagine that. They are a joke. It just took me an hour to order something online because they said none of my payment methods were accepted. NOT DECLINED but they didn't want to even run the transaction unless it was an actual credit card. PayPal sucks! With so many other options out there, they will be out of business soon.

Re: PayPal sucks

My sympathies! What “should” have been a “simple” transaction has turned into a nightmare for me as well. Received standard “flagged for review” spiel from scripted agent and forced to wait 3-5 days to transfer funds out of PP. I work in retail and told my management the difficulty I’m having and told them NEVER to use PP. Interesting business plan PP has. Hold onto our funds as long as possible to make as much interest off it as possible. I’m never using them again!

Re: PayPal sucks

PayPal help scammers from China. I bought a pair of shoes on a website and the seller sent me a pair of fake Nike sneakers. I went back to the website and the website was totally gone! I then went on to PayPal to make a dispute, PayPal wants me to send the item back at my own expenses even though I told them that it's a fraud and the website had disappear. What kind of stupid **bleep** is this? Even with the $30 reimbursement, it's still not enough for me to send the item back to China. But why the **bleep** do I need to send it back at my own expenses when they're **bleep**ing scamming me? Talking to 2 people already and it's the same **bleep**.  Blablabla you need to return the item.  Well **bleep** you PayPal! You just helped a **bleep**ing fraud and I should **bleep**ing sue your **bleep** for allowing this **bleep** to go on. **bleep** your buyer protection policy! It's full of **bleep**!!!
