Could be better
There's a lot of verification steps you have to take, on top of that it gets quite annoying when you have to make a call to PayPal in order to send money, I tried to send less than $3.00 to another account and I was blocked for security reasons. It's too secure, beyond inconvenient. I understand security, and it's necessity, but common sense tells you when a few dollars is being sent that it's not to be of alarm when both accounts are already verified. Otherwise this application is pretty useful. It's a headache when you have to wait to get paid from a sale on eBay as well. Overall the app serves well, I will give credit where it's due, PayPal is widely available for a type of payment and I would still recommend this app. For online purchases especially. Also, if you ever run into a issue with a store that won't refund you it's actually better you paid with this card than cash, because PayPal support will look into this and see if you've been done wrong, just make sure you keep receipt records of your transactions so you can send them in to them for verification and dispute purposes.
I have used PayPal for YEARS!
I have never had one problem with PayPal. I have been a member for years, before I even had a PayPal phone app. (Used exclusively on my laptop). The phone app has enhanced the management of my finances. It is so much easier to monitor one account rather than reviewing and verifying charges on multiple financial statements every month.
I have used extensively for EBay payments, sent money to my daughter and friends even in Europe. My daughter has access to the funds immediately-much faster than electronic bank transfer! I have only had a couple fraudulent charges and PayPal took immediate action to resolve. I have the PayPal "business card" for items I sold on EBay.
As a result of the professional, friendly service I have experienced I now use the Pp credit card for shopping online.
The Oregon trail equivalent to funds transfer
I never write reviews, but upon using paypal for an item i sold on eBay I figured I had a month to spare before the funds are even available for me to transfer to my bank. It gives you a vague "potentially 21 days before funds are available" message without any potential progress what so ever. They do not hesitate to take their fee out, but when it comes to receiving your new funds they take their sweet time. In the time it has taken (continues to take) to have the funds become available i wouldve preferred to walk across the US myself and made it a cash transaction. Venmo and even snap cash are more viable options for financial transactions. While I'm writing this review I just saw a commercial that shows payment requests through gmail, and i can already insinuate that it would be faster than paypal. If i had a time machine to go back and time only once, I would use it to stop myself from using paypal. If you really hate someone recommend them to use paypal.
