Holy crap that sucks. Since mine is tied to a bank account I use solely for paypal transactions there would be major bouncage.

Hope it gets straightened out quickly.

Call your bank Dirty...they should be able to fix the issue faster than PayPal.

Were you able to get someone on the phone at PayPal?

I do alot of business with PayPal, it's a necessary evil in most cases. If you think I can help in any way I'm happy to.

LOL - I hear ya. I bounced funds off my account and they decided that it would be appropriate to place a 21day hold on all incoming funds before they release them for me to use.

Should make this $400 shirt order I'll be collecting for a ton of fun.

What are you going to do with 8 double sided 36" dongs??? Even for you that is a bit overboard (not by much though).

I've been using PayPal for about six years without issue. Makes you think. I hope it gets squared away soon. You going to continue to use them?

Here is my contribution to the paypal SUX thread. Because of Paypal's asinine policies my $20 transaction to Lance was flagged. They required additional info from me and then Lance. I got my end cleared up then Lance had to approve on his end. Well, needless to say Lance is busy and I'm nobody. A few days later I try to log on and WHAMMMM. I thought I was in the Eddie zone or something.

I finally got a hold of Morne' (think French here) last night and she was very helpful. So, the matter of the red stars is cleared up.

In the last month or so, I have purchased a couple of items from other people on the forums. Each and every transaction was F'in flagged. I have used paypal for years, backed everything up with CC and they still wanted info that it took me DAYS to fix. I'm all for security but this is F'n ridiculous. If you are talking a person to person transaction, I guess it is good to have this type of service. But, with companies, if they can't spend a dime or two to have a better service maybe they need to reevaluate their business plan. I'm just sayin'.

I've said it before and will say it again: if you give a merchant access to your bank account you are looking to get screwed. Same thing with a debti card. Any problem, honest mistake to fraud, and you have to fight to get your money back. You can have problems with a credit card transaction, but at least you're not out any cash until you decide to pay the bill, you have the protection of the Fair Credit Billing Act, claims resolution process, and as a last resort, refuse to pay the bill and send an affadavit to the credit reporting agencies explaining why.

Going a step further, many credit card issuers offer something called Virtual Account Numbers, which is a temporary credit card number that's different from your physical credit card. A virtual account number can only be used by a single merchant, and you can specify a maximum charge limit to avoid duplicate or overcharges. That's the only way I pay for anything on-line.

As for PayPal verification, just open a separate bank account at a different bank (it has to be a different bank, otherwise the bank can reach into other accounts if this one gets overdrawn) and use that to verify your PayPal account. After PayPal verifies you, you can close the temporary account. As long as you never try to draw funds on it, PayPal won't know the account is closed.

for one of my new businesses, the worst mistake I ever made was using paypal to handle transactions. I had a merchant bank also, and they were a pleasure to work with - once you got past the initial hoops.

Here's a difference in experience:

Merchant bank:
* Required full credit check
* Required proof of business, bank accounts, etc.
* Reviewed every aspect of my e-commerce site, worked with me to ensure that I was fully compliant with policies
* When I exceeded my transaction limit for the month, they called me - talked to me, discussed the situation, then ultimately temporarily increased my limit for that month and permanently increased my limit for the subsequent months.

Paypal:
* Asked for nothing but a bank account
* Determined after a very busy week of sales that I was not in compliance with a policy -that could only be found by using a specific search box in a specific area of the site and typing in an exact query that you had to know before hand how to structure-
* Immediately locked my account so that I could take payments, but not retrieve any money (putting me on the hook for all incoming sales to ship, but not be paid for)
* Asked me for a bunch of business info, and said they would release the hold after I provided it, including tracking numbers.
* After I had given them all info and all of the tracking #s, they then changed and said they would unlock my account after all shipments showed proof of delivery.
* Said they would unlock everything after proof of delivery
* After proof of delivery, they determined instead that they would unlock my account but then placed a minimum reserve in an ungodly amount and a rolling 90-day 100% reserve on all transactions.

Now, after three months of not using them, I was able to get my reserve back, only by doing lots of leg-work and constantly jumping through each new hoop they threw at me.

FWIW, I have not had a single charge-back ever for this business.

I will -never- use paypal for a business again.

Just an FYI. Yes the bank will resolve it ten times faster then paypal but you'll still get screwed by paypal if you bring your bank in. At least o did. My paypal was also tied into my bank account. I used them to purchase an exhaust for my car and paypal decided to send the private party double the amount. Of the three times I called them in one day i received three different reasons for it and not one desire to have it worked out immediately eve.n though it was my money and it had gone to outer space. Wachovia somehow turned into a good bank and disputed the transaction, returning my money a WEEK LATER. At this point paypal was still having trouble making things right with my account and had put my account on an inactive hold due to their notion that I had made the mistake. Seeing as paypal doesn't list a customer support number on their website I had to go to WWW.paypalsucks.com just to speak with someone. Then I had to wait on hold for an hour just to ask them to remove the hold on my account that they had placed on the account due to Wachovia stepping up and getting my money back from paypal. Me using my bank apparently didn't sit well with paypal. I simply told the poor girl on the line, I don't hate you, I hate the people you work for and their stupid policies. Paypal sucks and don't expect me to ever use paypal or promote it in any way.
