    Ok, so I get an email from somebody off Twitter who bought my ebook saying that they paid but never got the download. I check my emails and nothing from paypal about payments so I go to the paypal site and find out 12 people bought my ebook and paypal never told me I got the funds. I sent out the ebooks to those who bought them but WTF. Somebody needs to come up with something better than paypal they're getting really bad.

    What if immediately following one of your 1.3k payments your paypal was limited. You try to find out why, all they say is:

    "We found something suspicious about your account, we no longer want to do business with you, you will recieve your funds in 6 months, there is nothing you can do as you have been flagged for No Appeal, Goodbye."

    Trust me you will be angry. Fuck Paypal. Get out while you can.

    Not to be a party pooper but 1.3k a week is not that much. You act like you are taking million of dollars in payments and not having a problem. I move around 20k a month in my PP yes that is not that much money compared to some out here. Yes I have problems.

    Sometimes they do not send me an email.

    Sometimes they send them to me after 2 days after the transaction.

    Sometimes they do not send them to me at all.

    Which is essentially the same problem madinaz is having.

    Ohh in case anyone thinks I am a big shot just to say I am not . My profit every month is much less then that. that is my total amount of money I move around coming and going each and every month.

    You folks should stop trying to game paypal I think based on what you're saying. I've never had a major problem with them either. Then again, I don't do anything shady through them.

    An occassional hiccup is the worst I've seen. I believe if they are holding someone's money, and you don't pursue legal action it's clear who's right. If and when anyone tries to keep my money from me - the courts DO get involved.

    Terms of service often don't mean shit in a court of law. Many clauses cannot be enforced, and are blatantly illegal. The online world is notorious for that as TOS is seldom crafted by REAL lawyers. Stand up for yourselved unless PP is right about you, in which case - reap what you sow.

    What are you talking about?

    madinaz was talking about non receiving paypal emails.

    What does this have to do with gaming paypal?

    I have never had one problem except for emails with paypal. They sometimes come on time sometimes they do not. Sometimes they come a day or so later.

    What you just said have to do with the situation.

    Try reading the original post and come back with something that is on topic!

    Haven't really had problems with PP either ;) One got limited from my own stupidy, and few are limited with IP thingy, guess should be easy to fix But in general i have been able to transfer between accounts pretty well :) i guess their algorith catches some with random :p, they have tried call few times too :) But in the other hand no problem with main accounts

    I agree someone should tackle PayPal & eBay in order to be successful, there are so many clever and skilled BHW members that I think if some of them joined in a team they would really succeed in making things better and even beating eBay.

    paypal once blocked my account because I used it to pay a friend's account in a random membership site. blocked me like FOREVER stating the transaction wasn't made by me, and I had to confirm my credit card. I tried and I tried adding but never worked. No matter what I did I always got the same autoresponses when I tried to talk to them. Then all of a sudden I could access my account again. I hate it, but I need it...
