    but paypal is the biggest payment gateway out there, you either live with it, or lose a huge customer base.

    It happened to me weeks ago while I was paying for my hosting at namecheap. On the Paypal screen, it says, waiting for response from namecheap. I wanted for days and I finally called Paypal using Skype.

    I told them about the transaction and in 2 minutes, they lifted the dispute. Call them.

    calling them will most always help in these situations. Once you get past this you should be good. I had to name my baby paypal to get my account straight again.

    Exact same thing happened to me after renewing a few domains at Namecheap. Got my account lmited and namecheap wanted to charge me $100 for the chargeback.

    Simple phone call to paypal and 5 minutes later everything was resolved.

    Didn't even need to go to a blackhat forum and throw some ridiculous tantrum saying that paypal is the the "worst shit ever"

    They hit me up a few days ago saying I now needed to send them more information and limited my account fully.. I couldn't even xfer money to my bank and have had this account for some time tied to 2 CCs and a bank account. It is all straight now, but if they are requesting photo copy of things for their records, give a grace period for the user to respond to the request, don't just limit them out of the blue and say submit the info. I had to wait almost 2 days for them to review the info that I sent and remove the limitation.

    Hi
    I am not an American but it seems to me that some of the things they do are illegal under your system Limiting your payment = restriction of trade, name your sources and give us invoices= trade secret revelation, aren't they protected under your constitution? I am wondering how they can do so as I have an paypal account created in Australia and recently starting selling on ebay.com and ebay.com.au the same product. All sales in ebay.com limited. All sales in Oz not. Not sure if the Aussie paypal have to release the funds because of Australian law or if it has to do with my account being created down here.

    No, it's Paypal and eBay. I don't believe either companies are homosexual, correct me if I'm wrong.

    Agreed, some of Paypal's practises are incredibly frustrating.

    But then ask yourself, have they asked for this information from you?

    Probably for one of the following:

    - You're using proxies/accessing from multiple locations
    - You used false information
    - Your buying habits are somewhat dodgey
    - Excessive or suspicious claims

    People fail to believe, but Paypal do not issue limitations, request proof of identitiy or reverse payments for "no reason at all".

    thats the bullshit of it all.
    these companies that are ruling the internet have ZERO customer support.
    paypal, google, ebay, etc



    i have a whore that filed a paypal dispute with me last week.
    i won, so she called her credit card company and did a charge back!!!
    now paypal wants me to refund them 200.00 AFTER they say i won?!?!

    Eh, you kind of have to foresee this stuff with PayPal. It's not a secret that this stuff happens. I have a pretty good relationship with my PayPal account manager, and he's told me before that a lot of limitations are just actions that take place because of an algorithm within PayPal, and nothing more. People don't investigate things until it's processed through the system and are notified that they should look at it, but you are already limited.
