    paypal is shutting accounts that have been linked to previous epn accounts.

    last year a friend of mine opened up a paypal account she would use to deposit epn earnings. in the course of the year, that epn account was closed in a mass
    ban operation.

    well, paypal limited her account today because of suspicious activity.

    she has only bought 2 things with her account...the last time she used the account was last week when she bought a few dvds.

    the only thing i can think of as to why they limited the account is because of epn.

    having experience with one paypal account getting shut down because of a previous link with a banned epn does not mean that all pp accts linked with banned epn will get shut down.

    pp accounts get shut down for any random reason.

    The bottom line is that paypal has a strong hold on the market. Sure there are alternatives but how many people or companies actually use these.

    lol what are you talking about with moneybookers ?

    EPN will never use moneybookers lol. Its not about paypal alternative for web site or everything its for epn.

    The only thing to do is a DD. Get a friend in bank and make him open mass bank account. Or for the CS rich, get a corp and mass open bank account.

    I agree that paypal is a shitpile but they are the most used and popular option.

    well yeah, but if they keep closing accounts they won't be big for long...

    you're not gonna stay popular if you keep turning customers away.

    case in point....i just won an ebay auction for a product...but can't pay for it because a paypal account (not linked to any bh stuff what so ever) was closed....

    now i can't buy stuff on ebay

    oh well...

    this should look really great for ebay/paypal's earnings report
