I never give my credit information online. It is too easy for someone to get.

Many qualms. Paypal seems to be absolute crap since they refused to ship my friend’s order. Her father lost the statement with this code on that she supposedly needed, yet they’d taken a few dollars for ‘membership’ and wouldn’t ship her CD. She sent us all a really pissed off e-mail bitching about them and warning us off. I use Amazon, Tower Records, MVC, HMV online

Paypal and ebay I don't trust thats why I never give out credit card details to them. I only use reliable and trustworthy siites. The look of the site also helps me decide. If it looks professional then I will consider it but it is looks poor like the paypal site then I will not even think about it.

I've never had any trouble with PayPal, and I've also never heard from anyone who had trouble with PayPal, so all of this negativity toward it is surprising to me. I've always had very good success with it, and I feel secure in allowing them my credit card information.

I'm also confused about elbereth's story--PayPal doesn't ship anything, so how could they refuse to ship your friend's order? PayPal doesn't sell anything and isn't a go between for merchandise one orders. The only thing PayPal does is act as an agent on behalf of the customer in sending or recieving monitary funds between the customer and another party. They charge your credit card on your behalf in order to pay for an order with an unaffiliated party, or they withdraw bank funds on your behalf in order to pay for such an order...

...They also receive funds on your behalf from an unaffiliated party and deposit those funds in your bank account or send you a check as per your preferences. They're a banking service, basically, and nothing they do has any relation to shipping orders.

If your worried about PayPal's credability just look here, they are well known and accredited by major organizations... It just sounds to me like people are haveing a lot of unjustified worries about them and I happen to know they are secure. If you think it's unsafe research it instrad of wallowing in your doubt.

I don't own a card.
16 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Wednesday 1/7/04 - 10:54:05 PM EST (GMT-5)
If I had one I might.

More like three qualms.
15 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Monday 6/7/04 - 4:40:35 PM EST (GMT-5)
don't have one
15 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Wednesday 7/14/04 - 1:23:15 PM EST (GMT-5)
No, because I have a very low credit limit on my cards on purpose, so if someone ever got my information, they wouldn't be able to do much with it.

I have paypal hooked up directly to my bank account and credit card.
I haven't had a single problem with it and I have instant payment from my account now because the cc gives me a backup source of funds
15 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Wednesday 7/14/04 - 1:49:37 PM EST (GMT-5)
No, I do it all the time.
15 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Wednesday 9/1/04 - 6:15:59 PM EST (GMT-5)
I would never do that, even if I had a credit card.
15 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Wednesday 9/1/04 - 6:17:08 PM EST (GMT-5)
I have a qualm or two about giving ANY information to people or sites that I am not familiar with.
15 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Thursday 1/6/05 - 10:12:37 PM EST (GMT-5)
