The browser is just catching on what we all knew from years ago

But no, brave, edge and chrome works fine for me
Just checked on chrome & firefox, all secure.. looks like only Opera has this

Everyone knows PayPal steals money with their high fees and random bans so browser is right to warn others.

I mainly accept crypto for payments as I don't have to deal with the reverse chargebacks and scams or PayPal freezing my money.

I also use CashApp to accept FIAT money but that can be trouble too but it can be a better option than PayPal.
But depending on your business you are potentially losing customers.
Lots of people still do not use crypto or know how. The same with cashapp.
PayPal is sometime an option which people need to use.

People still use PayPal in 2021? Get away from those scammers.
Bound to use it, 7 out of 10 customers insist for PayPal.
10 out of 10 customers don't prefer any upfront payment via crypto.

I still use crypto but it's not that easy for me to avoid PayPal.

In order to run a successful any kind ecom business, paypal is required. People trust it wayy more.

YUCK! Bro that's why I honestly don't run any ecom stores where customers need to use PayPal. I'm not even really running a store right now, I'm in other online money making methods but when I sell services nobody pays me through PayPal but my customer base is really small. It's not even worth it as a seller to be running an ecom store long-term with PayPal, so many of them get shutdown every single year and chargebacks are a headache. That alone will get your PayPal account frozen, happened to me and 20+ other people I know over the past 5 years. Even if you're not in trouble now you will be. There's even major companies that were using PayPal at one point who stopped using them.

If you're running an e-com business long-term you should be using your own merchant as you'll still do well charging credit/debit cards and you're not dealing with the headache of PayPal.

Crypto and CashApp aren't there just yet as far as people using them but they're better for you if you have a really small customer base.

Overall, PayPal is one of the main reasons why I don't even run an ecom store because I know customers want to use but I'm still surprised in 2021 that sellers are not smart enough to realize that PayPal can kill your entire business the moment they come out of nowhere to freeze your account. Trust me it happened to me 2 years ago, PayPal froze $93,000 of my funds and I never forgave those fuckers for that shit and they had the nerve not to return it to me. It set me back so badly financially so if you're reading this you've been warned.

I would agree with you overall Paypal is like working with a snake that's why I generally don't use it on sites when possible I prefer Stripe since never give me any issues or problems overall but when it comes to Paypal something can go wrong anytime of the day more less it's not really worth me trying to deal whatever they plan to do today or whenever overall.

Exactly, PayPal is so unpredictable it's very much like working with a snake. There's a way more likely chance you'll be screwed, most people who have used PayPal are aware of their scammy behavior. I've used Stripe as well and I'd much recommend them over PayPal. I've had my troubles with Stripe too that's why I recommend using a merchant but your experience will be a lot better with Stripe than PayPal. Whenever my accounts got frozen with Stripe, I never had to fight for my money as I got every single dime back within 90 days. I got in trouble with Stripe because of the number of chargebacks on each account. Without the chargebacks, I'd be safe with them plus my name got blacklisted on there so it was hard to open new accounts safely that's when I eventually walked away from ecom business entirely.

Back to PayPal, people just don't know how scary and stressful it is once GayPal or ScamPal out of nowhere freezes your account. You will never EVER EVER be prepared for the moment it happens to you and there's nothing you can do about it unless you have a lot of money to fight them in court. If you're only making money from PayPal you're in trouble. Better wise up now and cover your tracks before it happens to you guys while you're still ahead.

I would agree with all you said.

Before I started selling things in semi serious way I never really thought about Paypal being bad or unpleasant since it always good most of the time but when I made my first £1000 in one day they contacted me and said my account was under Fraud check so I asked.

I am confused about what fraud took place as you claimed? reply back"Fraud check" so took like 3 months of it going back and forth for me to get the money for legit sale on Adsense if I made like £10,000 in one day on a new account I guess hold for like 1 month be okay but for just £1000 I felt way overall I even send them to prove to show them my Adsense account but they never released it until I offered to sue them in court with a legal title I put to there head office after that they stopped being stupid for a little while.
