    Yeah, avoid Paypal like the plague that it is. It is not a bank, as ruled by the gov't., and is not subject to the same restrictions and oversights that they are. But PP wants you to think they are. And if you are "verified" via a confirmed bank account, watch out! In the fine print you authorized them to deduct from the account you associated with PP! Very dangerous, young grasshopper! I won't use PP ever again. They have way to much scope over your own money, and it leaves you open to be taken advantage of.

    People tend to defend PP by saying they've never had a problem with them. Give it time. Use them enough and you will.

    I understand everyone's concerns; but, on the other hand, I don't do massive amounts of money trading through them. For me, they are simply a convienence. Some sellers on ebay only accept paypal so until I either start massively buying or massively selling on ebay I'll keep taking my chances each and every time. If I lose a couple bucks sometime in the future, well so be it. I won't be happy about it; but, I'll keep reaping the rewards of winning auctions that many "soured" participants won't participate in because it is paypal only.

    Well put Xvart.

    I've never had an issue with PayPal. I use it only for small purchases though. (eBay and other online businesses)

    I can see where sellers might run into problems with deadbeat buyers however.

    Overall, I find it very easy to use and convenient.
