I Knew Paypal Didn't Like Me!

January 15th, 2007 at 07:13 pm

I 'tried' to open a Paypal account. Frown I knew it was a bad idea. I've always had a 'feeling' about Paypal not liking me and now I have PROOF!!

It all seemingly went well, although I wasn't sure which account to open. I decided to go with a personal account to start with. The problems started when I couldn't get my primary email address confirmed.

Paypal said they sent a confirmation email but it never showed up in my email account. I waited for hours....NADA! So, I went back onto Paypal and had the email resent....ZIPPO! Then I emailed Paypal through their help system hoping they could figure out what was wrong. I mean, come on, here I am a new account trying to GIVE them my $$.

Guess what....yeppers, that's right...no response! *heavy sigh* I finally decided to try my g-mail account and add it as another on my list of emails. Believe it or not, that one worked PERFECTLY. Problem is, my paypal account is set up under the email that won't work!

I emailed Paypal again last night,through the g-mail account. Yeah, right again, they haven't responded yet! I wouldn't have even opened an account except: 1) it was one of my goals for this year 2)lately more and more Ebay auctions are requesting payment via Paypal only. Usually I pay by money order or cashier's check. Does't seem that's how some people want payment anymore.

On the more positive side,I was able to open up an account on Half.com and list 18 books. *smile* I haven't had any "hits" yet as far as selling any, but I feel confident as I tried to list each book for less than the asking price others were wanting for their's.

Any $$ made from that will be added to the $20 Challenge of which I've added $0 so far. Frown The year is young though. Last year's challenge brought in $1,600 even though I wasn't formally doing the challenge on line.

*fingers crossed* for a year that's just as lucrative! Smile

    Sorry to hear all your troubles, I must say I have never had any problems...knock on wood. You should however be able to link upto 6 email addresses under the same account, good luck

    Thanks Amber, I just don't understand it. It's my Yahoo account that won't work. That's my main email for all of my survey sites that I use and now I'm afraid if they pay me through Paypal I won't ever see the $$ because the email is unconfirmed. Frown

    PayPal confuses me, too. For some reason I needed to upgrade to a Premier Account to get paid for an item I sold on eBay even though I've only sold 3 things on eBay and they make it sound liek Premiere is for eBay stores and high volume sellers. Now that I'm Premiee they get a bigger percentage of the sale. I'm sure I could figure it our by poking around on their site. Oh well-- if that what I need to do to get paid I guess it's what I needed to do. They are providing a convenient service. I hope you get everything figured out.

    I use a yahoo account and have never had a problem. Did you think about opening a brand new yahoo account just for this purpose? I have a designated account for ebay stuff only.
    Maybe something in your spam blocker is keeping the emails out. Did you turn ON your Bulk Mail, so that odd things can still come thru, but go to the Bulk box for you to decide if you want to open it or not? If the bulk box is turned off it will automatically reject certain emails as spam. Hope this helps!
