    So I sell a digital download product. I got a sale and paypal held the transaction, the reason listed was to do a review to make sure the quality of the sales process bla bla bla. Submit your information about the transaction. The buyer NEVER disputed, paypal just held the funds

    So I submitted the shopping cart info to them.

    2 weeks later... Transaction reversed! Sent the money back to the buyer! I feel so ripped off! That 30 bucks was mine!

    Ha.......

    They held $475.00 from an Ebay transaction that was a CC dispute.
    So I pay it and bring the account to a zero balance.Then they tell me that I won the dispute and put it back in my account so I transfer it to my bank.

    Right after that they send an email saying I need to restore my negative balance! Right after they said I won the dispute!
    (no emails explaining this no phone calls)
    So I ignore it, and they turn it over to collections. So now I have a negative balance of 475.00 and a creditor on my ass.
    The Paypal giveth and the Paypal taketh away!
    ........Fuck Paypal
    they can suck my dick.......and take all day


    Peace.

    I hate gaypal too. Time to show them our middle fingers. Their service hotline sucks big time.
    Their customer service should be called self-service. Brainless attitude towards my problem and they claim to have recorded my call for future use. WTF.

    they will limit your account for ANY reason.....obviously...i had over 10,000 in my paypal that I hadn't pulled out when they limited it. I called them, and took the money out. I'd rather they limit an account with $0 than one with $10,000.

    They want to limit my account? fine...i just want to make sure i have not money in there when they do.

    Start selling digital products via paypal and you will see how many scammers are out there. Be happy it was just $30. I have lost a lot more than that due to similar transactions and it's just the tip of the ice berg. Wait until you have to pay a $10 fee to process a chargeback claim someone makes against paypal because someone stole their CC details and purchased something from you :)

    I've experienced this too, actually twice. Last December 25th, I got a dispute filed against me because somebody from Indonesia (according to the logs of my zen cart) purchased using an account registered from U.S.A.

    I don't know if the dispute originally came from the client or from Paypal themselves. This happened to me twice, purchases made from Indonesia are investigated. Fuck!

    Right now, I'm trying to blacklist that country! I don't care if they're using a proxy or living in that country!

    Plimus is a middle man that handles paypal transactions, correct? I haven't used them but the problem with plimus is they hold your payouts for 2 weeks. They might have some better upfront security but they still accept paypal payments, which makes me think they are still subject to the same problem but instead it will be plimus receiving the fake paypal payments instead of you. You be best to email them and ask.

    I have just switched over from Paypal to Paymate for selling my CL PVAs - getting 20 - 30 chargebacks/unauthorised transactions/week. Paymate will deposit directly to your bank account - although they haven't launched in the US just yet - I think it will be in the next 2 weeks or so.

    I've heard a lot of stories about funds getting locked up, but I'm assuming most of these transactions were from random people? That is why I prefer getting transactions to PayPal from a legit company that they have years of experience with in paying their clients.

    If it's ever an option for affiliates or for commissions, I ALWAYS do Bank Wire transfers or Check. I will always use PayPal as a last resort.

    I just had one of these. Guy scammed me. Took my product for free then pp charged me $10 on top of reversing the charges. He said that he never got the product.

    The product downloads right to your desktop. I even gave them a screen shot of me re-sending him the product.

    PAYPAL SUCKS!!!!

    Well, I do not use those nazi's anymore. I found a new way and I think everyone should try it.

    I upload all of my digital stuff to ejunkie and use the google checkout process for taking cc info from customers. Google checkout will transfer funds from your checkout account into your bank account automatically every 2 days. And they were a little cheaper in fees.
