I sometimes use this payment system. Indeed, several times I could not make a payment. I had to contact technical support. I did not really like this service. It's easier to use bitcoin-purse

And I agree with you. May PayPal and not so quickly transfers money as bitcoin, but he is not a fraud. They have their own rules, which must be observed.

Well, this depends on how you look at PayPal because most people that purchase things on Ebay like to use PayPal because it's quick and pretty much the only option to get products packed and shipped to your house within no time.

Businesses that use PayPal don't like it because PayPal freezes Business accounts without any reasoning sometimes.
That is the most popular reason why most people don't like having money in PayPal. There shouldn't be much of an issue if they already verified the profile and Business account and checking it after they send money to another person/Business.

I never led a business through this system. I used PayPal privately. And I had no problems with this payment system. But I would not like my savings to freeze for no reason.

I have had an issue with Paypal and while I was trying to look for a solution on the internet, I came across this website (https://www.consumeraffairs.com/online/paypal_02.html) where everybody is complaining about Paypal. Most of the complains were actually similar to the one that I have. I thought Paypal is a credible company but now I have started feeling worried about my funds stuck in the accounts.
No! Paypal is not a scam, although I'm a bitcoin lover. It maybe true only that , many of their clients/customer are complaining to their services which giving them a different issues.

No! Paypal is not a scam, although I'm a bitcoin lover. It maybe true only that , many of their clients/customer are complaining to their services which giving them a different issues.

In some cases the complaints people have towards PayPal are well justified, but in other cases it's not always PayPal that should receive people's blame. If you browse through their TOS (I know it's boring and no one really does it) then it's clearly visible that you can't just expect PayPal to sit back and do nothing. It's the government that from behind the scenes is forcing all kinds of services to tighten their policies.

PayPal obeys everything coming from the government as they basically have no choice. If you don't want to get bothered with all things that PayPal can or might do (e.g. put balances on hold till you can show solid proof of where that money comes from), then just skip PayPal, but don't complain in case such a thing happens to you since you agreed to their terms.

It is true that PayPal are very keen on government regulations because any violation will lead to dire consequences. At the same time, they are also trying to safeguard their customers interests by protecting them from would fraudsters. All these said, they need to be considerate to some cases which seem to be genuine. Just blocking peoples accounts with funds in them is not a good option. My account was blocked with over 1000 USD yet the mistake was mot mine.

I doubt that the core of paypal business are millionaires.
Also there is no government involved in Paypal.

Please stop with these things.
Paypal is just a service provider, a payment gateway.

A company that provided a pretty good service back in the old days and that still does so.
People are using paypal because they trust it , it's damn simple and they have support available.
Even a moron can use paypal. Unfortunately.....

I dont know about others. But with my 10+ years of experience with PayPal I will say that PayPal never actually scam people. Its the people who dont go by the policies/terms/legality/commitment while using PayPal. And thus when there is some sort of issues, then PayPal does the arbitration & whoever provides the proof and which is admissible, PayPal takes care of the decision. I am not taking their side. This is what my experience says.

Yeah PayPal is not a scam, this is just a service provider who helps in making business as well other transaction with certain limitations. Mainly this has been used by people who involve into cross border transactions.

It's impossible for PayPal to scam anyone, they're massively regulated due to their prominence and state as an official regulated company.

They're a terrible service and they're not a good choice for people to hold a lot of money in, but they're not a scam by any means.

I agree to you, it is not scammer, I used that before and it works fine and good, it is just that we have now bitcoin that we use fastly and more securely.
Apart from this, Bitcoin is better than Paypal in term of service, but PayPal is a not a scam for surety.
Paypal is a legal and worldwide accepted payment processor and guys therefore they have to maintain some strict rules and terms.

I mean they just cannot make the payment irreversible because it will give scammers a easy way to scam out. But at the same time that security is being breached too easily by some wrong doers and they are just making that reversible system a advantage to themselves in scamming.

I'm sure it's not scammers

I agree to you, it is not scammer, I used that before and it works fine and good, it is just that we have now bitcoin that we use fastly and more securely.
Apart from this, Bitcoin is better than Paypal in term of service, but PayPal is a not a scam for surety.
yes that is right that is paypal is not a scam and it is performing its service in better way but the thing due to which people are calling it as scam is that some people due to some reason cannot remain for longer with them as they often freeze some accounts due to unwanted acts by these people.

It's impossible for PayPal to scam anyone, they're massively regulated due to their prominence and state as an official regulated company.

They're a terrible service and they're not a good choice for people to hold a lot of money in, but they're not a scam by any means.
Paypal now is highly secured anytime you can dispute your transaction and contact them that you didn't to any transaction that have been made on your account. Paypal holding payments or money for security reason that is why people nowadays are choosing bitcoin no need to do etc things. Paypal is big company and will don't do anything stupid.

You can email them in their support and if you send your money in the wrong email you can get it back sooner even you are sent it as family and friends.  they can be still reverse the payment.
So for those who are want to deal paypal to bitcoin and bitcoin to paypal only trusted members or people you should choose because anytime they can reverse the payment..

I have had an issue with Paypal and while I was trying to look for a solution on the internet, I came across this website (https://www.consumeraffairs.com/online/paypal_02.html) where everybody is complaining about Paypal. Most of the complains were actually similar to the one that I have. I thought Paypal is a credible company but now I have started feeling worried about my funds stuck in the accounts.
No! Paypal is not a scam, although I'm a bitcoin lover. It maybe true only that , many of their clients/customer are complaining to their services which giving them a different issues.
yes i also agree with you that we cannot consider paypal as scam, i think still its service is available in most of the countries of the world, although now bitcoin is taking its place but still bitcoin is applicable in most area.
Yeah PayPal is not a scam, this is just a service provider who helps in making business as well other transaction with certain limitations. Mainly this has been used by people who involve into cross border transactions.
Paypal is really a big community and i do not think that paypal scam to people because a lot of people are using paypal and paypal is using for internationally.
