Difficult to navigate but does a lot
I have had a paypal account for almost twenty years. It has been handy and useful. There have been some difficulties along the way but they’ve worked out. Two complaints-one, about 10 years ago I sent$130 worth of items to a buyer. Tracking showed them at a post office near where they were going. When the buyer filed a claim with EBay, PayPal simply removed the money from my account. No question, no discussion. No communication. I followed up with the post office and got nowhere, but that’s a different story. Two, since I’ve been using my phone for EBay, I’ve used other parts of my app. It’s difficult. For example, I can add as many addresses as I want, but I can’t change my default, where I no longer live. I can get to the site, but there’s no option to remove my default, just my additional addresses. Today I tried using the Shipping label part. ‘Help’ doesn’t help. I finally figured out how to do it from my summary but after 6 labels it told me I needed to add a debit or credit card or bank account because I didn’t have enough funds. I checked my balance, my bank balance, and debit card balance. They were all way good. I logged out and tried again. No good. I’ll try again tomorrow but two customers of mine didnt get the one-day service I offer.
Better then a Bank
I have no had PayPal for at least ten years and love it!!!! It keeps excellent records for you all your history and with whom. I’ve read some of the negative remarks and I have an extremely hard time believing many of them. Yes that they might of spend some time on the phone; well guess what nothing in this world happens at a snap of the finger. Yes even with banks and Comcast you can spend 2-3 hours on the bank; as long as your issue has been resolved. Anytime I have called PayPal for anything they have always resolved my issue. They have opened cases for me and have never taken a penny; they do NOT Charge for that so stop lying. Also if someone has sent you money and then called and filed a case against it and their bank, yes you have to deal with the person who did that and not PayPal. Just as any bank receives a fraudulent transaction and gives back the money so does PayPal. So why do you think if someone called in on you and said it is a fraudulent transaction you get to keep the money? Hence you have to deal with the person who owes you money. I completely understand people love to complain and make an elephant out of a mouse. However, any issue I have ever had was dealt with amazing customer service.
2-star only due to occasional convenience
I have had PayPal for almost 20 years with no issues, ever. This year (2020), I have been scammed by several buyers, and even though I had proof of everything whereas the buyer did not, PayPal sided with them. The one time PayPal did not side with a buyer, which again, I had proof and buyer did not - buyer said did not receive item even though messaged me the week received about how great + tracking proved it was received within two days of shipping. (During this time, the customer threatened that PayPal gave them my personal information - personal phone number, home address, etc. - which I do not know if is true but have had an enormous amount of spam texts ever since.) It took a while for PayPal to close the case, then several weeks later, they took $150 out + $20 fee because I do not keep the money in PayPal but actively linked to a bank account. Come to find out, the customer filed a claim with their credit card company (the fee was PayPal), and PayPal refused to give me the contact for this company to send them proof and said they would handle it. It was several months later - after not using it, I randomly logged it to get a date from something unrelated and saw I had been refunded the $150 but not the $20 fee. Those are only two of the multiple issues I have had with them and their lack of customer service this year. Highly recommend using another service instead of PayPal.
