    Dear clients,

    With all the respect, DO NOT write any restricted words in the Paypal payment details. I don't know how it happens but only the guys with prohibited sites find something to write in that silly payment details box.

    I have got a payment for a SEO service and the payment box had the site URL mentioned, you guessed it - the site had 100% related keywords like "sex" and "cams" in the URL. Few months ago I had a payment for an email marketing tutorial and the client found useful to mention "payment for email spamming guide" in the box.

    Anyway, I'm still alive with the account but please dear clients, have some pity for your service providers.

    It's no use to make this kind of comments in the payment form, the single "use" is for our loved Paypal who can close our accounts instantly.

    Regards

    Yes Mr provider, it is a great idea to call it out on BHW rather than tell each of your clients.
    Honestly, I believe there are tons of providers here, you would do a lot better mentioning it to your clients prior payment.

    Yes, that's a good idea and I have learnt that now.

    Get some -rep for your arrogance. Thanks :)

    Fair enough, was trying to throw some help rather than hurt your feelings. Apologies for that.

    Some might consider your approach as arrogant, the "hello clients".

    In either case, it does not really bother me as I wasn't trying to be arrogant, just hope you can use my comment to benefit yourself and your clients.

    Thanks for that Tommy.

    I do admit the comment was a bit "not nice", however, I thought it would be smarter to solve his issue in private rather than patronizing bhw and calling us all "clients". Something I've learnt in my short stay @ bhw, is that it is a place for business minded people, hence bhw members might be aware of this.

    Once again, apologies for the misunderstanding and I truly hope I haven't caused much havoc.

    I buy random stuff from China and most of the sellers always mention "don't put anything on the paypal box" ;)
