    I keep trying to buy a godaddy domain with paypal verified and it keeps asking me to add a credit card. The reason why i signed up for paypal is because i don't have a fucking credit card, are they retarded? How can i get around this without adding a credit card so i can just go along and purchase a domain name. I have made purchases in the past without adding a credit card. Why now?

    I have had nothing but problems with PayPal. My own personal premier account is limited because of "suspicious activity". The problem is that people were paying me through PayPal for various projects I did and PayPal found this "unusual" - What a bunch of fuckin' retards.

    you need money in the account to make payments.. how your expecting to pay? using a bank? then transfer from bank to paypal.

    if you have no cc or no bank = no way to pay/send money..

    There are people here selling low cost vcc. Just go buy one, verify your Paypal and you are good to go with Godaddy.

    there is an alternative
    use payment gateways
    like ccnow.com or authorize.net
    ofcourse ebay frowns upon the use of that
    but it does work

    hell yea
    they don't suspend your account or anything
    they don't give a fuck how much money you bring in
    more money you make - more money they make
    feel me?

    You don't even need that, there are so many other ways to get you money from them.

    I'm for using an alternative, but the problem I face - you find that everyone these days are using Paypal, so switching will kind of limit your earning potential.

    I really hope that Google check out or some other payment processor can really give Paypal stiff competition.

    I don't suppose that even if all the members on here left paypal, that it would even cause a dent in their pocket , would it ?

    Lol, the one time Microsoft should jump in, they don't.

    there are many ways you can get paid
    -check
    -bank withdrawal
    -western union money transfer

    i don't agree with you on that, there are some payment processors that DO accept paypal as a payment method along with all major credit cards, so your earning potential doesn't have to drop, it will drop only if you let it

    by the way if you use google checkout and ebay finds out, guess what
    you just got banned, been there done that

    google checkout and paypal are neck in neck in competition, so ofcourse paypal would want to make every possible cent through ebay.

    by the way google checkout places a $500 limit just like paypal when you open up a account, you will need to verify the account just like paypal, and if you want to earn real money they will ask you for your ssn because of all that cash flow.

    but if i had to choose id ofcourse go with googlecheckout, so much better then paypal.

    the down side to not using paypal
    -anything other then paypal on ebay is frowned upon by buyers because paypal always favors the buyer in any situation, unless you have 100% proof youv'e been scammed.
    -using a payment processor
    - on most of them you get payed ONLY on the 15th and 30th of each month
    which is NO PROBLEM as long as i GET MY MONEY AND ITS SAFE.
