Exactly i said this sometime back. The only thing I dont like is that most customers prefer to paypal. "they say that the customer can do a charge back up to six months. But they also may freeze your account for no reason cause they feel as though you are selling to much. It can be without a customers complaint. I had an account with them and when i advertise some items customers were buying left to right i provided all info tracking number etc. I called everyday.. the only way I got my account unfrozen was I reported them to BBB and at that time they were in good standing with them. This was after calling everyday for 2 months. I had drawn my money off everyday but they still had the opporunity to freeze some money. There are other merchants that you can sign up for free and give you free shopping carts and is much cheaper than paypal no matter how much you make per month.suzieh said:If you are going to be receiving funds... EMPTY your account ASAP daily or a few times a day. I had a friend have his account frozen for months...tied into EB sales.
Remember PayPal is not a Federal US bank. I see they've added merchant services...run.
Go with a mainstream merchant account if you can afford or qualify.
I think you have to offer PayPal as an option, however, try to find an incentive for customers to pay in other ways if you can.
If you have an eBay account, go into the forums and see what current merchants and buyers are saying (that is if EB hasn't deleted their posts).
My 2 1/2 cents.
