    Right, I needed some extra cash to take my girlfriend out, understandable, I'm sure everyone here has been though the, "i need a quick $20", dispite the fact I'm from the UK, that's £10, that's engouth just to go to the cinema or something.

    So I wrote up a very basic, simple to follow e-book on adult marketing, using a tatic which works, I've tested it, may of lied a bit about how much I earnt from it, but w/e.

    $10 a copy, not a lot, ok, sold 1 copy, dude seemed OK, even gave him my MSN and spent ages helping him get it right, he was under my affilate link, so I knew he was earning from it.

    Wake up, check Paypal, oh look, he's said I never sent the item, I explain to Paypal, they do their investagation, week+ later, my account gets limited? Wtf.

    I can't send/receive money, until I pay Paypal $0.50 - Sure, I could get a friend to SEND me this kinda money, it's nothing really, 50 cents, oh no.

    But I can't, so I now have to wait 7-9 fucking days, for $0.50 to be taken out of my bank account.

    What the fuck is the point in
    a) Paypal doing this over $0.50, just taking $0.50 away from my account would of been fine, they know I get payments often from my useage, they know I've been a verifyed member for a while now.

    b) This dick on Digital Point doing it, HE IS EARNING FROM THE METHOD.

    Anywya, that's it, just needed a quick rant about this.

    ^ rofl. Yeah that's some asshole shit. I don't think I'd accept payment through PP for intangible goods unless it is someone with a huge rep after the stuff I've been through with tangible goods. I don't know how you guys do that. All it takes is one asshole whining to PP.

    It's totally put me off the idea of making money from selling stuff on digital point now, even though it can be good money, their mostly idiots who ask questions which i explain in the ebook. :mad:

    I guess its all about volume. My paypal account often gets to -$500 or so and it never gets limited. But I always get payments to bring it back fast...

    Sorry to hear about how you get ripped off at DP, I got scammed there many times too. I would be interested to get your ebook however.

    We need to find a way to send non tangible items w/out getting chargebacks. Maybe somebody here should start a business like that lol :)

    We should start a list of DP scammers who do chargeback and come up with their paypal account names

    Do you guys like that idea?

    We really need a "DP Bitching Threads" section added that doesnt go to the recent thread feeds this way ppl can bitch all they want and i dont have to hear the same stories hourly about how they got scammed on paypal. make them write "i understand that this payment is non-refundable because the item is not tangible" when they send the payment in the description

    Yea, where is it under ? I have 1 name to add to that list already anyway.

    yamahafzr: make them write "i understand that this payment is non-refundable because the item is not tangible" when they send the payment in the description

    Would that actually work? I hope it will but i doubt so since paypal are such douches.

    it should. one time this guy i knew loaned me 80$. i trusted him. he trusted me. just to be safe he wrote "for 1 zune" in the box. he said if i fucked him over that money would go right back into his account so he didnt lose any money if i scammed him. of course i paid back and everything worked out fine... it was a safety thing for him

    sounds cool but how does "for 1 zune" help him back a claim? :confused: lost me there....also would be nice if this theory has been tested out in a real scenario.

    Maybe i'll try it out. ;)

    Problem with some DP selling. Is if you are using Buy Now buttons. With automated delivery. You cant make them write that.

    However if you have your buy now button on a sales page with some heavy TOS. Then its simple to win paypal disputes.
