I do believe Paypal is credible. Thet are connectsd with banks so this company is really strong. With your complaint I guess there have just been an error with their system. That is all the explanation they will say also. I just dont like the way their customer service handle this kind of mistakes and add up their transaction fees, it is too high even for a minimum transaction.  I suggest switching to something else although many online shops prefer Paypal as payment there are still options there.

Exactly, they charge too much for low amounts transaction and it literally reduces the overall profits in such tiny deals. I live in a country where PayPal is forced to withdraw all of the amount received in a bank account associated with that PayPal account of the user. A credit card is required to send payment to others so it's really messy as compared to that of cryptocurrencies.

Its really complicated and its very hassle to use paypal compared to bitcoin which is really convenient at all and regarding with fees i could say that paypal does really charge to much compared to bitcoin.Paypal isnt a scam but theres a feature on which people do use it to scam people which is the cashback feature.

PayPal is serious financial service with long tradition, excepted everywhere. We can't call it scam. They have they own issues and problems, the service is sometimes not perfect, holding money on their account is maybe not the smartest thing to do, but they are not scamers.

Yes paypal is indeed recognized worldwide and have very stringent rules which they claim are set to protect buyers from would- be scammers. The moment they suspect something small, they will immediately restrict your account until they are very sure before they release the funds. Some of us acted in ignorance and never read their rules and regulations and had our accounts restricted. I have a lot of dollars in my limited paypal account and I am unable to withdraw.

PayPal isn't a scam, it's just that all the rules and regulations they have put down will cost you and if you make the tiniest of mistakes, it will give them a reason for them to lock down your account and run.

If you play it overly cautiosly, you'll be fine.

Paypal was first revolution in online payment processor world! And the service you are accusing scam was sold for $1.5 billion 15 years ago when internet was not so popular so you guess its worth!

However, I have seen many complaints too like you mentioned. But I will blame people instead of Paypal for this. Paypal has clearly written terms and conditions. Being a financial company, it has to be very sensitive towards regulations and should curb unjustified use over its platform.

I don't think that Paypal is a scam,because based on what I saw in the internet other online shops are using Paypal for payment, and mind you that those online shops are popular and legal. So maybe if someone was having a problem with Paypal then the people of Paypal should be aware to it, because it's damaging the name of  Paypal.

There's no solid proof that paypal is a scam those people that are using it thinks that paypal is scam. And those who are experiencing but delays and other problems with paypal are talking but complains to them. I did use paypal for so many times and I'm satisfied with it. I don't even intend to say that they are just scamming me.

Well, if you have linked legit credit card on your PayPal then you did not encounter any problem in PayPal unless you violate the PayPal rules, those who say that PayPal is scam are those who have problem about their credit card they insert (probably cheap VCC) or they violate the PayPal rules.

Paypal has already established its reputation to people (seller and buyer ) all over the world even myself I already used Paypal several times and transact big transaction but paypal didn't fail me even once ! I also think that Paypal is much safer to use than bitcoins when transacting legal services !

One or two people may have faced issues with paypal due to their country restrictions, but I don't think that paypal is scam in any way. I have been using paypal account since 2009 and my account is bank verified. Till date, I never had any bitter experience with them.

Every single transaction took place smoothly. Every withdrawal received without any problem. Remember, paypal is not like any other currency available in the market. They have physical office location sin multiple countries. It is a big corporate company.

Some people are using paypal and they do not faced any issue from paypal so for them paypal is a good services and they still rely on it and mostly use paypal service for shopping etc while there are some poeple who are facing some problems like they get freezed from paypal or someone scam him with transaction reverse so they are calling it as scam. That is the thing which are feeling like paypal is a scam service.

I also sometimes use this payment system, and I have never had any problems. I think that this is not the crooks and serious service. By the way, it is very convenient to use PayPal

I think Paypal is not a scam. It is a reputable company with a long tradition. If fraud it will not survive that long. Paypal has attracted many users. Its security system very closely.
If you receive money from the transaction and the place is not clean, your account will be very susceptible to limited. This is a difficult thing when using Paypal. However this does not prove that paypal is a scam, it still very good and many users

I'm not really aware of this Paypal before until I saw it in some other online shops that accepts Paypal and then the amount will be in USD. And we don't have proof if its scam or what, and i think if its a scam there will be many news about this as well as the online shops, they will not use it anymore.

Actually I didn't used any credit card for it(physical) instead I used virtual credit card that is working for 4 years and I really don't have any problems with it. I don't know with other VCC users, I have some issues of delay transferring my funds to bank and upon complaining they resolved it immediately. And as of now, I'm happy using my paypal funds for buying things online.

Paypal although is popular and was the only best payment method before bitcoins. But i cant say its secure than bitcoins. Paypal rollback feature can be used with evil mind and people may be denied of money. On the other hand there is no rollback of bitcoins.  Still Anyways calling Paypal a scam is not right at all.

Although they do not have the best support, I also think that many users still benefit from the service, and I certainly would not say that the company is a scam.
Some of the points you have mentioned may actually be a problem for users who need a more fungible form of payment, which is why many users will prefer to use Bitcoin instead of Paypal.

I dont know if I am just the only one experiencing it but when I first tried paypal I thought they are going to take my money away because my employer sent me my first earning via paypal and what paypal did they limted my avcount so i cant cash it out ! I thinks it been limited for 21 days or more but after several identification they release my money and succesfully transfer it to my bank and I can verify to you that it is very legit

Once you're fully verified with legit ID and play by Paypal's ToS, you shouldn't be worried about your money there. Sure, somebody can do a chargeback on you but then it's the person who scammed you and not paypal. I've been using it for quite a long time without problem.
