For over a decade I’ve been using PayPal.
I use PayPal and only PayPal.
It’s practical, no fees and my money is safe.
If I need to get ahold of customer service, I can do so and count on a response back that same day.
Some reviewers are talking about “a hold” being placed on their money however, in all the years using them, I’ve never experienced that.
I use their direct deposit option, PayPal Cash Card and send money in seconds for FREE with the Friends and Family option.
Recently their system was flagging the direct deposits from my employer as self-employment- payments for services and goods.
They said that by law they had to report it to the IRS.
This of course isn’t right as my wage (w2) is between me and my boss, not PayPal.
I had to reach out twice to get this rectified.
This is a serious and big mistake to make as it can cause a lot of troubles for their customers with the IRS… they’re basically falsely reporting income.
They do need a savings option to put cash away but I read that the developers will add this feature in the coming months.
I looking forward to this highly appraised update and hope it’s as good as it’s made out to be.
When I first downloaded the app, At first it only made me put my email & password that was it boom I created an account. I downloaded it because I’m using Depop which is another app to ship products & receive payment through PayPal. After I created my account & made a sell the payment said pending. I figured it would take a few days so I left it since I’m a new account… It has been over a week & I made 3 sells so far totaling it around 60$ . Every payment says pending still. I have put in my bank info, ssn, & personal info in. For each kind of info I put in took 2-3 days to verify. Then today out of nowhere I almost was able to link my bank account but then it just kept stating error after multiple attempts. I also let it debit my acc 10 dollars to receive a code through my bank to put into PayPal to verify another thing. GUESS WHAT still didn’t work. Now I’m not receiving any kind of payment for any of my work all because of the app. I also checked with my buyers to see if they confirmed receipt or wanted a refund or anything. They said they have made the payment & it just says pending from their prospective as well.
PayPal is very unpredictable and unreliable. I’ve had this app for a while and so far I’m not impressed. I’ve come across many issues with PayPal, something always seems to go wrong with this app. This company needs to fix the errors and lag to send and request money. I’ve been trying to transfer money to my bank account and lately it has been saying “something went wrong, try again later”. This app frustrates me so much, I don’t trust it and hardly use it. Cashapp is winning, step up your game PayPal. The company needs to fix a lot of problems that this app has and needs to run way more smoothly. Stop being unreliable PayPal. I don’t know why these people keep giving it a 5 star when there are clearly a lot of issues with this app. Y’all need to keep it real with this company or they’re going to keep thinking everything is okay, when it’s not. I gave it a 3 star because it does work sometimes, but the unpredictability is quite annoying and frustrating, makes me want to delete this app.
I honestly hate PayPal! I was scammed once on Facebook and I used PayPal as my source of payment to the scammer. When I received my item from the Facebook scammer and saw it was a completely different item than what I ordered, I started a claim through PayPal after trying to communicate with the scammer directly and was totally ignored. Long story short, I provided pictures and everything of the item I purchased vs. what I actually received and PayPal sided with the scammer and did not refund me or make the scammer refund me simply because the scammer claimed they sent me the goods and services and provided shipping information to PayPal! PayPal does not care whether or not you actually receive the goods or services that you “thing” you have actually purchased. As long as the seller can provide some form of shipping information, they can easily and always get away with scamming you!!! PayPal assists scammers with working the system and fraud!
It was perfectly fine until this update. Now it won’t let me login via Touch ID, although it asks a minimum of 3 times (even during manual login). It no longer allows me to accept JPY in the app (or mobile site) even though money is coming from and going to American banks. This is problematic as I collect money on from friends on a weekly basis (not business). It also shows over $100 that I can collect, but when I try to collect it it says a) I have no money to collect; b) there’s something wrong with my account, contact them (the link takes me to the robot customer service, or c) some other annoying thing I can’t remember at the moment.
I’m too lazy to go through the hassle of dragging out the laptop to see if I can collect my money, but that’s not the point. The problem is with the app.
I needed some props for an assignment I had that was due October 10. I found what I was looking for and the shipping said it would be 7-10 business days. It being September 22 it would work perfectly. I chose to use PayPal since I had never shopped on this site before and figured it would be added protection. Have I placed the order I received a receipt from China saying my item would arrive in 8 to 10 weeks. I tried to cancel through the company I ordered from with no luck so I turned to PayPal and they denied my claim. What the heck man! This is why people use companies like PayPal. To handle situations like this if they may arise. I have been a customer for 10 years but I will never use them again and would never recommend them to anyone. Peace out garbage company.
PayPal is always there to help if you have any questions or problems with a payment or merchandise that you don’t receive 😊 I have had my account for years now and I am very happy 😊 They always do whatever it takes to resolve your issues 😊 I have had a few disputes with not received items and I got my money back in my bank account or PayPal whenever I had problems. If you can’t solve the problems online a representative is always available for you to talk with 😊And your personal information as well as your bank information is safe!!! Tysm PayPal 😊
It’s great-when I don’t have a hold on my account... I have learned to be cautious when receiving money through PayPal. So, I tried receiving a smaller partial payment -to make sure it would go through. Then another... Just when I thought there wouldn’t be any issues-I received the larger portion of the remaining balance and - yep, you guessed it... My money is-once again!- on hold(pending verification-again!) Every time I go to fix the issue, some ridiculous error message appears-and I’m over it! Reminds me of Bank of America!!!!!
I had a terrible experience with paypal. I sold my wedding dress and they are holding my money for 5 months, I don’t have my dress, the buyer already wore it and got married and I’m here with no money because of paypal, they say they can’t do anything about it even tho I submitted proof the buyer is fully satisfied with the purchase. Never consider to use this app to sell something, they will steal your money and I’m hopping they will give it to me after 5 months of them having it.
Maybe if you want people to spend money with you, actually use accounting to
Bright and shiny update absolutely useless. Just ways to spend more money with you. And now charges are listed without indicating what was used to pay the merchant--which card or credit. So great, a useless app update and horrible design. Maybe keep the important basics next time--it's my gd account. Can't wait to find something better **sholes.
