Small merchant killer

Comment by vgabeman
about PayPal Mar 2016

As someone who does a lot of consulting and freelance work, I always need a secure, automated paying system to receive payments from my clients. While Paypal is definitely the most secure, and is available in most sites, it's fees are horrendous. Pricing hikes for receiving money are making me look for alternatives. Fees are expectable, just not at this rate.

Safe, but at what cost?

Comment by DamianN
about PayPal Mar 2015

I've been using Paypal since forever but only acquired a merchant account until recently, only to see the fees they charge for incoming payments. 5.4% is a bit too much, and while I love the security it provides in terms of safe payment, I still wish they would slash their prices a little.

I approve

about PayPal May 2012

I use paypal a lot. There was one time where a person stole my information after I bought something, they stole about 200$ from my account. Paypal responded quickly and replaced the funds. Eventhough they made it so I'm not allowed to spend over 100$ at a time now, they still fixed the issue and saved me.

-Also, in the terms of service, in the fine print, it clearly states that they are not responsible for any funds lost during transactions. But this has never been an issue for me.

sucks

Comment by Klasper
about PayPal Apr 2012

Paypal suck. Their Automatic Renewal is tricky. Some firms do it automatically because you surely will forget it the first months. Firms are usally quiet about this. I also blame Paypal's labyrinth interface, which can also be very difficult to find out. Their support is just crap. They don't help you with anything. They refused me to change my surname even though it is started you should provide them with proof. I scanned my passport and driver license and still after 3 months they dodn't answer me. Right know im happy, because I find out how to close my paypal account!

PayPal is easy to use, but the fees are horrendous

Comment by Thelle
about PayPal and Dwolla Jun 2011

I really like how easy PayPal is to use, but the fees in PayPal are horrendous because they don't have much competition. I really hope competitors like Dwolla - taking only 25cent fee per transaction - can shake things up!
