  • Man, this is a load of crap.  Paypal is quite a ripoff.  They should straighten up, or Google will probably launch an auction site, also.  I’m no fan of google owning the world, but whatever Google comes up with will probably be better, anyway.

  • Never had a problem with paypal. Always free and always accurate. The only thing that bothered me was when you send a payment and it goes to the wrong email, you’ve just lost that amount if someone cashes it.

    There’s always bidpay.

  • Always free, albundyhere?  They charge you a percentage just to move money around on their own damn servers.  I sent about 200 bucks to my fiancee’s account so we could get one check from them instead of two, and it cost us 4 percent!  I can understand charging at cash-out and pay-in, but this crap is ridiculous.

    Plus, Paypal has a pretty big piece of the pie right now, which enables them to get away with crap like this: http://www.wired.com/news/hurricane/0,2904,68788,00.html?tw=rss.TOP

    Since it’ll be a good ten years before the government regulates this kind of thing, it’d probably be a lot faster to ensure that competition exists, thereby giving the companies a good reason to police themselves.

  • Why? Pay pal is a rip off and if google happens to launch an auction site they are screwd. Google wallet is probally going to blow paypal out of the water. Google never leaves anything half done.

  • Regardless of Paypal’s merits, eBay restricting it’s users to ANY single form of payment is really rediculous.
