This is not a paid advertorial. I truly love Paypal. It sux sometimes when people send me money and some of it disappears into the abyss of administrative charges BUT I’ve benefited from it lately so I better shut up.
I use Paypal for eBay, etsy and a bunch of online merchandising – either buying or selling. I’ve also sent money to friends through Paypal. I find it efficient and safe. Much safer than putting your credit card details up with every store.
So my story with Paypal is, I won several weasels lately. 2 cases in the last few weeks. Bought something, item never arrived – I got my refund after about 20 days of ping-ponging with the seller on eBay, then I brought it to Paypal and Paypal refunded me. In June, I bought something on eBay, item never arrived and when I wrote to the seller, she gave me some shitty excuse, then deregistered her account on eBay. I bought up a suit through Paypal and it was ruled in my favour!
Because I pay through Paypal, I have buyers protection. You see… you should too!
