PayPal

I'm just wondering how many people here use PayPal, and if you've ever had any problems with it. It seems so common, but I'd feel safer usin' it if I heard from some folks here firsthand about it.

I have used PayPal succesfully for several years now. It's a great service - fast, efficient and trustworthy. Plus, they can help if a transaction goes "bad."

One recommendation though, if you are buying something from a person on eBay who does not have a verified PayPal account, just be cautious. That is, don't send several hundred $$ to this person. If this transaction goes sour, it is more difficult for PayPal to help get you your $$ back if the account is not verified.

I try to use PayPal for all my eBay buying/selling. In fact, these days I am hesitant to buy something from a person who refuses to use PayPal.

Good question Bonochick!

I just won an auction for some U2 buttons off Ebay and when I completed filling out the blanks for PayPal and clicked on submit, the page reloaded or something...I was rather confused. So I clicked submit again, and it did the same thing. I wasn't sure if it actually went through, but I wasn't going to try it again. It's been 5 days, and I haven't gotten any confirmation on my payment...so yeah..that's my problem. :S

I do, however, have friends who have used it a few times and have had no problem.

I've used PayPal for about a year now, and I've never had a problem. It's quite convenient, actually. I don't have to wait for my check to get to the seller and to clear before they'll send me my stuff. But like doctorwho said, be cautious if they don't have a verified account.

Thumbs up for Paypal

My hubby buys and sells stuff using Paypal. He has had no problems.

I wonder how Paypal makes their money. I can't see that they charge any fees or anything. Hmmm.

Oh well, I know it works. I guess that's all that matters.

I have been using Paypal for at least six months and I haven't had problems. I get receipts by e-mail almost immediately, so if you haven't received one, I'm pretty sure the transaction was not processed.

Paypal is the shit

I have successfully used paypal for all my ebay shopping and other various transactions for like 2 yrs now. such a great service, much quicker an more efficient than sending checks or money orders in the mail. you should get your acct verified, its easy. you just add your bank acct info and put your credit/debit card info and exact mailing address on your statement, its how they verify ya.

as doctorwho mentioned, be weary of non-verified sellers. all the problems from paypal usually stem not from paypal itself, but when someone pays for an auction through paypal, and never receives the item they bought. on another forum i frequent, there was a huge, multi-page discussion about paypal about a month ago. i've never had any problems with them (although i've since closed my account just because i don't really use it), but everyone i know who has, it's always been relating to the seller, not paypal.

I've only used paypal once to buy tickets online, and I didn't have any problems with it...it was quick and easy to use...


speaking of PayPal...when did the little PayPal Donate to Interference thingy appear at the top right corner of the screen? I never noticed it before!

Elvis just put it there. He's going to explain about it later.

Interference is costing too much money..

We need help.

Thanks for the replies, everyone! There's an auction I'm interested in on eBay (not U2 related, actually!), and the seller will only go through PayPal, so I wanted to make sure before I placed a bid.
