I typed $5.00 and it took $50.00. What can you do about it???
I'm sorry to hear of the trouble with this transaction. @kernowlass has the right idea! We recommend reaching out to the merchant to discuss the payment discrepancy. You can also report this to us as a billing issue.
I hope this information helps!
Whenever someone goes to my paypal.me page or goes to the page to pay me, my name, city and state are shown.
Is there any way I can edit this so it doesn't show my name and location?
Instead, Name I use online or email address would be good.
Unfortunately not possible with a Personal Account - this is by design. The only work around is a Business Account - as Business Accounts will allow you to display a Business or Organization Name or a Business Logo Graphic.
Hi Forum Folk!
Sole experience with PayPal has been with making payments. Wife wants to sell a book online (someone that contacted her through Facebook), and wants to know how to get paid through PayPal. I have a basic account, not a business or premium account. Do I have to set up my account in some way in order to receive payments, or just give the purchaser my registered PayPal email address? No idea what to tell wife or customer!
Thanks for looking at such a rookie question!
You can sell items with a Personal Account - your easiest option is to send the perspective buyer an invoice - you can include the book details, shipping costs and any tax if applicable - the buyer then clicks on the purchase link, is then redirected to the PayPal Checkout Screens - there they can pay as a guest with a credit card or if they have a PayPal Account, they can login to pay. Once the transaction is completed, you should get both an email notification of the purchase and there should also be a notice of the transaction in your PayPal Account Activity Section - wait until the funds are released and deposited into your PayPal Account Balance. Once you have the money, you can purchase and print your shipping label. Also make sure you enter the tracking number in the transaction record. Now you're ready to ship. If you follow these basic steps, you're covered for Seller Protection.
Depends a lot on what browser etc you use, but if i tell you what I do then you may be able to work from that.
I go and click on the 3 lines top right corner of my browser > options (settings) > security > forms and passwords > keep the tick by 'remember logins and passwords for websites' BUT click on exceptions > add Paypal to your list of exceptions.
Then when you next log in delete the password and it should not show again.
How can I use paypal with iphone x. All I have is the credit card swipe device that connects to the headphone port?
My Uncle sent me money, it says it's pending...I need it now. Why is it being held?
Thats your reason then its an echeque.
Normally when someone pays you its never instant, paypal credit you the funds and then paypal take the wait for the funds to transfer from the senders funding source ie bank account.
BUT they only take that risk if someone has a back up funding source ie card linked to their paypal account as well. If they don't then it goes as an echeque and you have to take the wait for it to clear.
I set up my PayPal account when I was living in the U.S. Now I live in Germany. I have an Ebay account in Germany and want to sell something. Do I have to create a new PayPal account in Germany? or can I use the U.S. account? (I would prefer this)
Paypal is country specific so if you move country you have to open another paypal account in that country and add an address / phone number / and bank accounts from within that country.
The only exception is U.S ex-pats can add their bank accounts to other countries paypal accounts (paypal is a U.S company so they allow their citizens to do this).
