    to accept a payment they just send it to you email addy.. no biggie.

    add your bank info.. then just transfer it to your bank account..
    out of $110.. they kept like $3.50 on my last transfer...

    Or, for a small fee, they will cut you a check and send it in the mail...

    yep, that's how it works...
    they will withdraw something like 6 or 8 cents to verify the account is good.. then you are good to go...

    Good reason to pay with Paypal

    I bought a motorcycle windshield from a guy on a motorcycle forum and paid for it with Paypal. When I picked up the box at the post office, I noticed something rattling around. The guy had not packed it well and one of the mounts became loose and put some small scratches in the windshield. I immediately both e-mailed and sent a private message to him. No response.

    After a few days, I lodged a complaint through Paypal. Again, no response. Next I inititated a claim. Again, no response to either me or Paypal. Paypal gave the guy 10 days to respond and on the 11th day, I received a full refund from Paypal. Not only that, I still had the windshield!!! I e-mailed the guy to tell him I would send the windshield back to him if he would pay the shipping cost. No response. After three months of no word from the seller, I put the windshield on Ebay and sold it.

    request a Paypal debit card from them & you'll get a Mastercard debit card in the mail that you can use at any atm to withdraw up to $400/day outta your Paypal acct, they charge $1.50 each time but it's well worth it to get instant cash - plus the card is good anywhere a Mastercard card is accepted, which is everywhere

    I use mine so much the magnetic strip only lasts 6 months

    Use a credit card instead. They don't have my bank account
    number either. They screwed me once, and that was it.

    Filing a complaint with them is a 3 ring circus, so therefore I only use my CC
    with them now so I can just cancel the payment through my CC instead.

    You give them access to a bank account, then you run the risk of being SOL if a claim comes up.
    Their customer service is piss poor.
