    Paypal is pure fraud.

    1. Account----
    I have a e-commerce store, connected to a business paypal account, received thousands each months for 1 year, no lost disputes, nothing, no risk for PayPal.
    2 Weeks ago they limited it out of nothing, over 10k USD frozen for 180 days.

    2. Account---
    Knowing that maybe the domain has been blacklisted me and my JV partner set up a new business account to the same domain. It worked for about 1 week, then PayPal limited the account. Again 1-2k USD frozen for 180 days.

    3. Account----
    Knowing that another paypal business account connected to this domain would probably end up getting limited fast, we used a private paypal for manual payments. So clients place an order and get the instructions. Just to continue receiving money until the new domain + paypal business account is back.
    Guess what? Account has been limited today after 1 week. Again frozen for 180 days with 1k+ .


    PayPal is scam. In every way. But there is no option, since we must look at what clients want.



    Should a new domain + paypal business account work?


    HELP

    Would a new domain + business paypal (new business adress etc) work?
    I did this in the past and it was the only way.

    I am tired of doing all this again...but I need the money

    Yeah I have a lot of problems with PayPal too. I got a private account over 6 years, over 3k transactions. I sold something for 2,5k€ and PayPal limited my account without any reason...they do what they want. Hate them.

    Are you answering to yourself? :)

    It worked for a year with your first account, you said. If you manage to keep the new account separated from the limited ones, it can work again.

    They always tell you what to do to remove the limit. What do they require you to do? The stuff you're selling is within their rules? Disputes are not the only reason to get limited.

    Reported where? I never know this...Selling These services is probably against their TOS but I am in this busioness for 5 years. I always had new Accounts....3 or 4 domains. Its always the same ...
    Its frustrating. I dont get any disputes. Why cant they just WORK with us, for ever. Everyone can SEE that there are no disputes, no risks. Nothing.

    the short answer to the "WHY" is because you are in a 3rd level country.

    It’s possible to report accounts on PayPal. It’s not that hard to check for PayPal what you are selling.

    Ok where do I report PayPal accounts? I would like to report my competition then.
    Where?

    Only way is to set up new domain + new business pp with brand new data...
    and maybe redirecting from old to new domain.

    I already contacted 3 cc providers and explained my situation, I want another option.



    ------

    Yea but the 3rd PayPal from January 2020 wasnt connected to the site. It was a private account with manual payments.

    Just write a email to PayPal with the email of the account and write that is against their tos. Normally they check this. PayPal limit very fast in this cases

    WTF? No...when we had money frozen we always received it back after 180 days. After the 180 passed only thing to do is to withdraw the money to a bank account. This has always worked.

    I cannot write an email to them.

    ''Sorry, we're unable to display this information. Please try again soon.''


    Anyway, what is the best way to keep receiving payments besides creating new domain/account/new data ...
    Which payment processor for cc/debit is working?

    Not surprising!

    Saway from PayPal.
    Sooner or later they will limit your account or close it.

    This is the sad truth.

    If they close your account you won't be able to open a new one!

    Selling followers is definitely against their TOS, 100%
