New account holders beware
I had to get a PayPal because of an organization I provided a service could only pay via credit card. Because I was not an established PayPal user; it has been a nightmare. I was paid via transaction on their end of June 29th. My money did not show as pending until July 10th and only after several calls to the PayPal helpline. It was not actually in my PayPal account until the afternoon of the 18th. I immediately transferred it to my bank account and am still waiting; according to their transfer message it can take up to one business day. Today is the 22nd of July. Almost an entire month has gone by and I still don't have access to my money. My checking account still doesn't show a transfer as pending. My PayPal balance is 0 and the transfer on their end is still pending. I have called multiple times just to try to move the process along with a well if you would do this it would've gone faster or if you were an established user, etc. They should tell you these things ahead of time. The last two times I called I received conflicting messages. Website says 1 business day for transaction, 1st person 72 hours, last one 3-5 business days.
In a world of electronic commerce and instant transfers, an app that can't even compete with paper transfers is a loser in my book. Still waiting on my money.
I have read many horror stories about PayPal and I found out the hard way they are true. I have used PayPal and eBay for several years with perfect feedback. I had one buyer who damaged an item he purchased from me while he was using it. He admitted he received the item in perfect condition and that it was brand new. PayPal forced me to give a full refund even though the buyer admitted that he damaged the item due to improper use. They never even considered my side of the story and gave conflicting reasons why they granted a refund. eBay investigated the same case prior to PayPal and found in my favor. PayPal admitted they never even looked at the details of the eBay transaction. They found in favor of the buyer simply because he was the buyer and for no other reason. I will warn other sellers do not use PayPal unless you're prepared to lose your money. The horror stories are true. A quick google search will show this. I wish I would have done that.
Going to switch to google wallet
I have cancelled subscriptions. When the company couldn't get the money from my bank, some how it debit from my PayPal balance which was NOT authorized. This gave me negative balance because there was no cash there. They are allowing unauthorized transactions & locking up the account. I was able to get some of my money back by calling the company, but they state they cannot see where they took money unauthorized on their end, so now I not only have to wrestle with the bank to remove the NSF fees, I have to file another dispute. I have passive income that is paid into the PayPal account to pay & giving access to a company to debit the cash balance is inconvenient and a pain. It's unfortunate that some companies only pay via PayPal. I will start to encourage them to use google wallet or wait for a check in the mail. It takes just as much time to get the money as it does getting PayPal's mess straight.
