I ****ing hate paypal. Buying the weldless fittings for my keggle, paid for them 7 days ago and they still tell the person receiving payment its pending. They took the money from my account 7 days ago!

I will never use paypal again and I will never purchase anything from anyone who only takes paypal.

YOU ****ING SUCK PAYPAL

My good friend had his identity stolen through PayPal somehow. He went through a huge thing with them and they were much less than helpful at attempting to resolve the issue. He still has problems to this day because of their screw up.

I've been using paypal for years for close to 1000 personal and business transactions and have never had a problem.

I used paypal a few weeks ago to order a weldless fitting and zero problems. Did you use a credit card or was the money taken from your bank account? I only use a credit card with paypal because AmEx or VISA are much more likely to help you out than paypal. And if you use a credit card you can refuse payment, but when using a bank account, the money is already gone.

You need to link paypal directly to your account. If you don't, there are going to be delays. I've never had a problem with them either. I'd much rather use them then hand my credit card info over to some website where I have no idea what the security policy is to protect my info.

Yea it was tied to my Bank Account. Ive had it for years and use it infrequently.

Im just pissed that they took the money that moment. And yet have not paid the other end. 7 Days for an electronic transfer. Screw that-

Im closing the account as soon as I get my stuff.

One common problem is that to do an INSTANT transfer from a bank account you have to have both a bank account AND a credit card on your account.

I found that out the hard way a while back when my credit card expired, I got the new card but forgot to update paypal with it, and the next 3 payments I sent out took like a week. It does suck that they didn't warn me, as I could have updated it BEFORE trying to send payments out, but it wasn't a big enough deal that I won't use paypal anymore - it's so widely used (especially on ebay) that I can't easily live without it.

I stopped using ebay after looking and finding Im not getting any real deals and most of the time your dealing with a douchebag. Give them a crappy rating and they get the chance to screw you too.

I once paid 15$ for a hard cover book to be shipped to Alaska. After 2 weeks I gave them a bad review and what do they say. They shipped it media. I paid 2 day air to have it shipped! ****ing scammers.

I wonder if he was a victim of phishing......I have never had an issue with PayPal except when I forgot to update my address when I moved, my mistake. That held up a transfer.

Yeah, some of those phony sites look convincing. I can see how some people who might not have alot of computer experience could fall victim to a phishing sceme.
