    Paypal are now letting you pay after delivery..I think a lot of people are going to be using fake accounts with VBA's and going on a BIG shopping spree with paypal, I don't see what paypal are gaining from this..

    WTH? That is the dumbest thing they've done yet! The amount of scammers is going to skyrocket into oblivion. I'm so glad that I stopped selling on eBay a while back. I still will have to deal with these idiots with an e-commerce store that I'm building though. Ugh, freaking sucks.

    "Peace of mind when you shop online". Yeah, they just put scammers in major business. I really hope people have to show good credit before being allowed to do this.

    They had Bill Me Later and e-cheques. They got defrauded a lot by that.

    This is the DUMBEST thing Paypal could possibly ever do. I absolutely have no idea now Paypal could gain from this? I mean scammers are going to skyrocket into business.

    This is going to be by far more profitable than voucher accounts. (for scammers, ofc)

    Actually it works both ways.

    Scammers usually pretend to sell something and then ship an empty box, but as long as they give PayPal a tracking number and a few other things, they get the money and the buyer loses their money. So COD or Pay After Delivery isn't such a bad idea as the buyer gets to check the item out to make sure they've received what they've ordered. Of course the idea is flawed in many ways and it no doubt will attract more scammers but I'm sure PayPal will think of something to make it work. If the buyer screws the seller over, don't forget the buyer has used his real address, which means PayPal can send their debt collection team.

    If you are accepting payments for something I would love it if you used this instead:

    https://stripe.com/gb

    I have nothing to do with that company, but its standard credit card accepting, right to your bank, massive control panel (just like PP but better) and its charges are the same.

    I'm just a fan.

    I think there must be something hidden, it can be charges or conditions. Otherwise it will be a worth less decision from them.

    I'm sure a lot of people will.
    But I'm only taking advantage of this because PayPal made me pay a big negative balance when a customer did a charge-back scam against me, I'm getting paypal back. A nice shopping spree.

    Did anyone read the whole page?
    "May not be available for all your paypal purchases including cross border payments".
