Default Pay Pal

So the new for sale section of totv using pay pal someone is making money off it with pay pal. Never used it before but now that explains why the panjo thing or what ever you call it. Put your phone numbers in folks to much of a pain to try and buy something other wise. Everything boils down to money. But then I guess that sthe way it is

Pay Pal is the preferred method of payment on Ebay. Smart phones have Pay Pal apps. I wasn't crazy about it at first, but it doesn't cost the buyer anything.

.?
PayPal is a very reasonable service and it protects you so that your credit card info is not out there.
Also, one time I purchased something online and I clicked on the form to pay and it did nothing, so I clicked again but this time used PayPal and guess what..I was charged twice and told no refunds. I contacted the credit card company and was told sorry, too bad...I called Pay Pal and they said...oh yeah...we will get it back and did immediately.
Panjo uses PayPal and it is really cheap for the sellers to use....I say it is good for everyone.

It is voluntary. One does not have to use it and in The Villages I don't, but when dealing with distant sellers or buyers, it protects both of us from fraud, cheap protection for ten percent.

Love PayPal, use it all the time when I can. Safest payment around.

I cancelled my PayPal account after PayPal removed money from my checking account 3 times without permission or having purchased anything.

Wow. I use PayPal a lot and am very happy with it. But they do not have access to my checking account...only one credit card.

As a buyer did you use PayPal? The only ones making money off PayPal is PayPal. You can look up their rates on their site and will be charged when you are a seller. Ues it all the time when selling on EBay.

I used to have a business on Ebay and only took PayPal, I bought and sold. I set up a bank account with just a a couple of thousand dollars specifically to use PayPal and that is all they can touch, nothing else. They do not have access to our real bank accounts.

Use PayPal whenever available but also have it going to a credit card, no access to any personal accounts. I suspect Apple Pay will become a strong competitor at some point.

Sorry you are wrong! I had to get Citizens' First Bank involved to resolve it. The support staff at PayPal was worthless. And the amount of money was not insignificant.

Perhaps you should ask a question in the future rather than make an inappropriate comment. Or maybe just don't comment about something of which you have no knowledge.

Your post sounds like half a story. I have been using PayPal since its inception. It is owned by eBay. Although I've never had an issue paying with any of my credit cards, Paypal is probably the safest way you can pay for anything.

If money was removed from your checking account three times witout permission, I will tell you it wasn't PayPal that did it. You were scammed!
