After PayPal approved Buxaccepted.com, we gladly placed the PayPal logo onour site.Then on Wednesday, August 31, 2016 at 05:40 PM, we received an email from PayPalstating: We have recently reviewed your PayPal account activity and determined thatyou are in violation of PayPal's Acceptable Use Policy regarding your salesor offers of PTC services on buxaccepted.com. As a result, your account has been limited temporarily. To help us resolve this, you will need to: - Remove PayPal as a payment option, as well as all references to PayPal,including the PayPal logo and/or shopping cart, from buxaccepted.com.- Submit the online Acceptable Use Policy affidavit. Here's how: Log in toyour PayPal account and go to our Resolution Center. Click "Resolve" under"Acceptable Use Policy." Please read the content of the PayPal UserAgreement and type "I agree" and/or click "Agree."

Inaddition, only approved MLM programs may be allowed. ---------------------------------We immediately did what PayPal requested so that PayPal would remove thelimits from our Business account.We placed the PayPal logo back on oursite, and we were able to continue business for 5 whole days!Then we receivedanother email from PayPal on Tuesday, September 6, 2016 at 02:32 PM we received an email from PayPal stating: We have recently reviewed your PayPal account activity, and determined thatyou are in violation of PayPal's Acceptable Use Policy regarding your sales/ offers on http://www.buxaccepted.com/. Please refer to:- Transaction 09914974SW813325W- Transaction 9PV865655V1220538- Transaction 5M9524964X582011B As a result, your account has been permanently limited and this cannot beappealed.

We may hold any available balance inyour PayPal account for up to 180 days. In addition, you may be liable forany amount of damages PayPal incurs for each violation of the AcceptableUse Policy.-------------------These 3 transaction were for $25,$4 and $2, which members had paid for advertising.Why all of a sudden they have problems with these 3 transactions? At the time the limits had first started with PayPal, we had over 33,000 members and had alreadyreceived payments for advertising and paying members.Which we had already paid outover $12,000 in payments.I kept contacting PayPal by phone and they kept telling memy funds would be helt for 180 days and I could never use PayPal as a payment processoragain. On Thursday, September 8, 2016 at 07:04 PM we received an email from PayPal stating: Your account has been limited We routinely review account activity in the PayPal system. When we reviewedyour account, we noticed that your activity violates some of the agreementsyou have with us. Because of this, we’ve limited your accounts and can no longer offer ourservices to you. You’ll still be able to log in to view your transactionhistory, but you won’t be able to send or receive money. As allowed under the User Agreement, we’ll hold the money in your accountfor 45 days. We’ll use your balance to reimburse buyers who file claims,charge backs, or any other reversals against you. Before we reimburse thebuyer, in most cases, you’ll have a chance to respond to the claim,charge back, or reversal. We’ll send you an email after 45 days letting you know when you canwithdraw money from your accounts.--------------------They went from 180 days to 45 days?You falsely accused us of a non-fraudulent violation!Due to PayPal limiting the account to were we can not send or receive funds. PayPal has caused 16 unnecessary disputes filed by members against us!We sent PayPal actual proof that these members were sending them false claims, and the one that said his Card was unauthorized, we sent PayPal proof that the member made the purchase from his on account, yet PayPal sided in their favor!PayPal is deducting funds from the Business Accountto pay back these misleading false claims, although they got the actual proof from us,but still decided to favor the one's not being honest, the buyer's.We have no problem never using PayPal again!We just want our funds released so that we can transfer to another payment processor! Paypal is illegallyviolating the State Law,they can not hold a members funds for 45 days, not even 180 days!PayPal has a history of freezing members accounts and using members funds to gain a profit,this is also a violation to the SEC!

Pricing issue

PayPal works great unless you need them

PayPal was convenient and protected me from flaky vendors. And the stork brings babies. I ordered, took a screen print of my order. The vendor sent the wrong item. I put a stop through PayPal. The vendor wanted me to return the item at my expense and to release the payment. Finally, the vendor refunded the shipment cost. Since the item had been sent through the warehouse company, the vendor's address was not on or in the package. There was none on the website. The 800 number on the website was not in service. It was the same number PayPal had. I talked to PayPal. They had the vendor's address but couldn't release it. Their confirming e-mail said that if I didn't return the item in 30 days, they would close the issue and I would lose my $700. Finally, when I threatened to close my account, they sent me the address and I returned the package. Now I have to wait another 30 days for them to verify that the vendor received the package. No more PayPal, never again. And by the way, did you know that all ebay transactions, including those charged to your credit card, are processed through PayPal whether or not you have a PayPal account?

I have not heard one word from Pay Pal that they have responded to my complaint. We need a federal law to regulate this country. Capitalism does not appear to work much of the time against against immoral actions such as this.

Paypal - Account Review from Raleigh, North Carolina

I don't the the deferred interest is really the problem, but rather their assinine payment system. I'm not a genius but one would thing some part of my "extra" payment gors toward that deferred product, but it doesn't unless you qre within 2 months of pay off on the product. In other words.....lets say you have a $500 bal. and make a purchase of 1000 w/ deferred interest for 12 months. Let us then say your min.payment is $25 but you pay $100, thinking $75 goes toward that deferred product. Instead, based on misleading or misunderstood terms, that extra amount goes toward the balance NOT associated with the deferred payments. So.........unless you are within 2 months or have no bal. EXCEPT that product, you might be screwed! Creditors should not be able to use wacky math to increase their fees.

Divorcing PayPal, BillMeLater, Comenity Bank a long tough and tiring tassk

Hadn't used PayPal for many months. Made online bid on an article. Used PP to pay if bid successful. Was refused credit request,less than 110.00, based on mystery past transaction that I could not recall, look up in my records or on their website. During past months had 11.95 cr bal in my acct which they never offered to send until I closed acct today. Ritual to close is ridiculous they need to confirm already submitted phone & email info and then charged 1.50 to send a check. Website cumbersome. Their verification processes took multiple sends as email from PP never arrived until re-requested and during which time site was timed out requiring multiple logins. Want to waste your time take a whirl at PP site,

PayPal review in High Point, North Carolina: Unauthorized charges

I opened a Bill Me Later account and linked it to my paypal account so I could pay my balance with it. Without my permission, all purchases I made through paypal were automatically charged to my Bill Me Later account after I chose my debit card as my payment selection. When I contacted paypal on the matter. The "customer service rep" was not at all helpful. Said they , without the customer consent, make the Bill Me Later you default payment even if the customer selects a different way to make a payment. They did nothing to make me fill better.

Agree with sessa I have a bill me later account and that happened to me I contacted their customer service and they fund payments through a funding hierarchy starting with your paypal credit product if you don't have one they will charge your bank account and if you don't have one of those they will charge your card. You can always change it on check out under payment method and change you just have to pay attention.

Sneaky sneaky ..shame on them..im not suprised at all though.they are ridiculous. A Multi million if not billion dollar company and u STILL have to load tracking separetely on each site? Plus the criminal payment holds..smh

Yes, Bill Me Later is set as the default payment method by PayPal, but it is VERY EASY to change the payment method. I do it all the time.

You just weren't paying attention, you have to change the payment method every time. That is frankly your fault, not theirs.

PayPal review in Raeford, North Carolina: Worst customer service experience

I was offered a credit card and since I use paypal account for online I thought I should get it. First of all it takes forever to speak to representatitve. Then each one of them ask same questions and their phones are so messed up they can never hear anything. next person on phone will start again.. yesterday I called in to check for my card and the person named Denise was so rude that I didnt believe I was speaking to customer service center. I asked him to connect me with his supervisor he put me on hold for 20 minutes and then disconnected the call. He yelled at me when I asked why I was asked same questions. I felt he wanted to jump out of phone and break my head. I am disappointed and dont know who to talk and offer my customer service expertise.
