Paypal lost 57,000,000 users from 2013 to 2015
Around 2013 I saw Paypal had 230 million accounts. Now in 2015 paypal has 173 million accounts only. To maintain their profits, Paypal may increase their fees to 5%. It is not easy to run a big company with 25% to 40% less customers. You can directly use credit cards and debit cards online.
Richest terror group ISIS parks its cash in Bitcoin, experts say. One of ISIS Bitcoin account contained $3 million worth of bitcoin. Paypal had partnered with Bitcoin so that its merchants can use cryptocurrency for online shopping of games etc.. bitcoins get converted into paypal. Paypal must be favourite for converting illegal bitcoins and then used for annoymous money transfers and shopping online.
It is advisable to withdraw your money from Paypal and Bitcoin because FBI will most likely raid paypal and Bitcoin and they will seize both of them for investigations for one year. Paypal had lost 25% of its users before the news came out that terror group ISIS's Bitcoin account has $3 million.
I got this information:
Bitcoin users prefer getting money from hacked ATM card/stolen Debit Cards to earn profit and their bitcoins are sent to Dubai where terrorists operate.
Paypal losing more users
Today I got this message from http://2captcha.com
We're sorry but we've currently ceased to both accept payments and pay CAPTCHA solvers via PayPal. To CAPTCHA solvers: we are doing our best to complete payments on all the requests for payouts you have filed before February 8, 2016. From now on, use payza or WebMoney for your payout requests if you need to, please
20,000 to 50,000 captcha solvers who are working for the http://2captcha.com may also stop using paypal.
I've noticed a change in there attitude towards customers, recently they limited my account because i am close to the annual limit for receiving funds ,CLOSE TO THE LIMIT MIND!They want more personal info ,rang them and asked that they remove the limitation as i am not at my limit , never got back to me when i managed to talk to the client services, they had a pretty shitty attitude.For me it's simply data mining ,there excuse is money laundering LOL the limit is 2300 euros,,,maybe there worried i could destabilize a foreign country or become the greatest drug baron ever ! Trying to find an alternative ? any ideas ?
In the subject of paypal. I have not been able to use it for more than 6 months.I sold a high end laptop on Ebay and received the money via paypal. After a few hours and after I had posted said laptop I got a message from paypal telling me my account was limited and I would not be able to withdraw funds or close my account etc. I was told that the item I had sold was an unusual item for me to be selling. I guess coz it was the first time I had sold such an item. I was asked to provide proof the item was mine to sell - I had none- and to provide proof of posting for this item - I had no proof of posting. On contacting me they refused to help me until I could provide bot of those requests. So 6 months later the money for that laptop still sits in my paypal account but I am still unable to get at it due to the restrictions in place on my account. Oh I get a couple of e-mails a month from paypal to remind me to complete the requests. That is the reason I have not done any of my famous party upgrade threads for along ime. No paypal access to do the upgrades!So for me paypal sucks!
If you've lost the sale receipt try to go back to the store where you bought and request a copy of it.
Paypal policies are bad. Try other e-currencies. Too many restrictions are bad for internet business.
Try affiliate programs of online stores. You will get commission money from sales. Online store owners take care of all the procrdures and regulations. Affiliate programs are free to join. You have to do internet marketing of your affiliate link.
That means internet and sites like ebay are good place to sell stolen goods.
I buy and sell on eBay, n problems, their than fish emails telling me my account is limited, and to contact them, via the email. But when you click the link it's a fake PayPal website, as the address is t green. Always ignore them, unless it's an official PayPal email, even then, I'm skeptical. Especially, when you know you haven't done anything wrong.
I make money online and have the money dumped into my PayPal account which is linked to my PayPal prepaid Mastercard. I've been having issues for months now, both receiving and depositing money. Doesn't surprise me they are suddenly losing customers. I've moved money through PayPal for years, a bunch of it too. If one day you can't access a few thousand bucks you lose some faith. It's been happening lately.
O believe me, not only for you but for many people Paypal sucks ass.I will never use this service even if it was the last on Earth to pay for something.Just like a bank deciding some entity is evil and not pay your money through them so does Paypal decide what is evil and not pay them your money through Paypal.Good luck in getting your money from your limited account and what a great experience to show you that Paypal is not to be trusted. Sorry for your loss though.
I dont like paypal or ebay anymore. used to be great until they got all greedy and rippy offy and held my money. Love to see them crash and burn, both of them and be replaced by some company that is decent
No I don't have shipping proof. Yes I called Ebay, they said it was a paypal problem not theirs. Yes I spoke to a person on paypal on a number of occasions and always got the same "I would have to complete the process that was requested before the account limitations could be lifted"!
OP is on to something. Any thread getting 70+ 1*'s is being manipulated by someone... PAYPAL??? Paypal hates bitcoin and Gold. Go figure.
Yep right...how you do not have any proof of sending it? Nobody ship a high rnd computer without a tracking shipment.
Because it was not shipped but collected in person!The buyer refuses to respond to any
I've been selling online for years. Here's my story. They are too Customer friendly. In defending a complaint by a lady from over a month ago. And plus no one can qualify for paypal anymore to make payments via their checkout cart.
Plus there are TWO GOOD ALTERNATIVES APPS.
Square payments 2.75. Versus paypal 3%fee
And the square cash app
(square cash currently has no fees to send money $$).
There are still 100 times more potential customers, why not? They make money off of fees, not from funds idling in accounts. And if only every second one of the 57 million left one dollar in their account..not to count in all the limited accounts.
Paypal refuses to do anything about email 'phishing' scammers, is there anyway the Federal Trade Commission can start imposing fines on Paypal for not tracking down these
Paypal fees of 2% to 4% is same as Bank wire fees which is one time $20.
$20 for $1000 = 2%
they will have 40% fewer transactions but almost the same overhead cost. big layoffs or they raise the fee to 4%, or maybe 5% scammers?
Sounds like a Paypal scam to me. I wonder how many of those users actually know they have been "lost". The ISIS angle sounds like an excuse.You don't see anybody boycotting Toyota.
FBI had seized "Stormpay" for processing payments of a big ponzi. ISIS is the richest terrorist organization.
Past few days I have reported 200 sites infected with maleware while surfing at reputed traffic exchange site.
I am sorry to hear about this Pay Pal garbage. I really don't like to use them any more than necessary. Of course, I use them to pay the monthly for GLP. I think Pay Pal has become predatory in their business practices.
Paypal is losing clients over the drop of users on ebay...while selling is getting harder by the day the high cost of commissions are making small transactions simply pointless as there is no ernings.Never undestood the stupidity of those systems. Their transactions are just freaking automatic electronic process. Once you have the system going is far better to have as many transactions possible. With a 0.35 fee for transaction you are just cutting your service for micropayments... With a 0.10 cent transaction fee they would see a drastic increase of transaction. Micropayments should be their core business
I left paypal back when anonymous hacked them and I lost 2k in business in one day.
Your family members or friends or you can face ISIS gunmen because of some irresponsible large corporations.
Now Paypal has 57 million enemies
Online merchants/stores must add other payment processors for their online stores.
USA is land of scammers.
Having trouble with those bastards right now. Won't process my 'donation' to GLP......
Paypal has earned some bad reputation
All Emails Worth $100. All Ptc Worth $50, $500 Signup Bonus
Payout via: Moneybookers, PayPal, payza, WesterUnion, check

5% of paypal users must be scammers ?
So if PP holds a users money... they are guaranteed not to flounce. Shrewd.
PayPal Backlash: Users Closing Accounts in Response to Latest Decisions Regarding LGBT
I just wanted to tell ebay that I have cancelled my paypal account. I have been a member since 1996. I live in North Carolina and I will not support a company that bullies a state. I agree with Govenor McCory and I stand by his recent decision concerning the LGBT ruling.
Bathroom Bill Sponsor is a Convicted Sex Offender Who Molested Boys
PayPal cancels 400 job facility in NC because they passed law barring men from women's bathrooms and showers
FUCK PAYPAL and all of the globalist filth pushing this cultural Marxism to degrade our society. BOYCOTT these fuckers. Don't use their service anymore. PayPal has canceled its plans to open a new global operations center in Charlotte, following passage of a North Carolina law that prevents cities from creating non-discrimination policies based on gender identity. The measure also mandates that students in state schools use the bathroom that corresponds with their gender when they were born.
2 years back, I had called up paypal and I think the customer support who was on the phone, was homosexual.
Just closed mine. I had that account for 16 years.
I let them know that as a resident of NC, I support our law that keeps men out of the same restroom as my 14 year old daughter.
Companies should stick to business and stay out of politics.
We need to hit them where it hurts most - their bottom line. Hey PayPal!
I should threaten paypal with closing mine too, they get a nice chunk from me, I've dealed over 10k through paypal already this year.
Dont forget paypal will not support 2nd amendment sales either. No gun or gun related transactions.
Let them know by logging into your account, then search "cancel account" in the help menu.Don't cancel, just do the search. That search has to be tracked and someone should see the interest.
Online stores/shops must have alternative payment processors along with paypal.
Till now online stores have allowed paypal to become a monopoly but not having alternatives.
500 rednecks closing their account? Paypal will not go bankrupt.
Just closed my account. I've had it for ages and used it all the time. I can't see doing business with them any longer.There's a line in the sand and they crossed it.
Just closed my account. Got a storm of e-mails from them indicating that my "purchase agreement" with various merchants that I used my paypal account with over the years was canceled :) I had no idea how many of those agreements were in place. Dozens of them. Everything from Zazzle to the classic EBay.
Good riddance. I'll never do business with them again. I will not openly support a company that openly opposes my religious views.
Trying to use economic leverage to force someone to compromise their beliefs is pure evil.
I called them yesterday to cancel my account. They said it had to remain open for 180 days from last transaction in case there are any disputes. So I will figure out a way to screw PayPal even if I must cancel my credit card which they would not let me delete either.
Paypal and Ebay can kiss my ass....my accounts are gone!
Wow, that's quite the backlash. JK, it's not, and now I don't have to do business with these bigots.
I just cancelled my account. Done with those douchbags. My next donation to No Agenda show,I'm going to have them douche paypal.
I cancelled mine today too. Fuck those filthy degenerates.
I don't ever understand, ever hear of a credit card? It's just as safe as PayPal.
Credit card payments can be reversed by banks in case of fraud or dispute but there will be some travelling.
I was planning to cancel my PayPal account anyway because of their idiotic policy to default accounts to PayPal Credit. Fuckers charged me interest on the credit account even as I had cash sitting in my regular PayPal account. Completely sleazy.
Anyway, nice of this incident to nudge me into action.
--Yup me too, I cancelled my account yesterday.
--I will jump on this bandwagon now myself.
Fuck the system.
POWER TO THE PEOPLE!
I just cancelled my account. Never found much of a use for it anyway. Use a quality credit card and your protected from theft anyway. PayPal is an outdated losers tool.
We just closed our Paypal Account. If they want to support the pervs. we want nothing more to do with them!
One guy on an ebay forum closes his paypal account and that's "backlash"???? LMAO!!!!!
closing my PayPal account.. never using them again
When millions close their paypal accounts......that would be backlash. A handful is nothing to them. But, do as you wish.
Closed my account I started in 1999, stopped using in 2008. Closed it this morning, I too am tired of bullshit companies trying to force people to condone to their thoughts.
on the phone now closing account, all agents busy, waiting lol.
Down with PayPal!! Make this go viral. List all alternatives that you know of.
--Just closed my account too.
I wish to limit my business transactions with the heathen
Im in Washington State,,,I fired Pay pal too today...
For some, PayPal has been a nice convenience. I use a credit card for the points, like another poster stated, and pay the bill at the end of the month...no interest. However, I don't do business on the web, but on the published 800# of the company. Works for me.
Which makes me think that people should notify the vendors and let them know they'll lose their business of they don't provide a secure alternative to PP.
Glad now I never signed up for PayPal. Saved the trouble of canceling.
-Yes cancel the card and get a new one. Then tell your bank that you want PayPal linkage to your bank account canceled. Then their claws are removed from you.
