Title: Paypal Master Thread
Post by: Yehuda25 on May 04, 2017, 08:48:03 AM
Any solution to buying with a new paypal account (4 months old)?

Paypal basically told me that since the account is somewhat new, they aren't letting any big purchases through (even as low as $500)


I have verified everything multiple times, all the credit cards, added social...


Sent some quality time on the phone with them as well...

You can try upgrading it to a business account (no cost) and see if that helps.

If the money was placed in the PayPal account via MY PayPal cash and other methods you risk having your PayPal account shut down, but taking it out another way for ex. Amazon you can play safe and still play MS.

me and a few friends got shutdown for opening our account prior to being 18... Seems ridiculous that it took them 10 years to figure that out...

Any way to get that old account back?

yup, from looking online it seems to be happening to a fair amount of people, so ridiculous. And being a big company there is no one to talk to and they can do whatever the flip they want.

I've had other issues with them in the past, and I hate also how there's no real CS to talk to. They still are the biggest company in regards to having thier presence everywhere (especially PayPal checkout) and when something didn't work right by them I couldn't fix it, which really bothered me. But thru many different companies zelle is growing very quickly now, and hopefully since it's used by many large and important companies it'll have better service then PayPal.

And as usual the first company that becomes big in a new sector of business, thinks that being first is good enough and doesn't work hard to keep thier place, will die (Kodak, palm, blackberry... To name a few)

I had a good experience with PayPal and its customer service.
I bought something expensive on eBay, and when it came, I saw it wasn't what it was supposed to be.  The seller refused to take it back, so I disputed through eBay purchase protection, and all went well until I missed sending back an essential signed paper by eBay's deadline, so I lost the case. Totally my mistake.
So I disputed through Paypal, since the merchandise sent wasn't as represented in their listing.  I won, and got my money returned.

Sorry for waking ppl up here on this dead thread...

PayPal account was hacked and then cashed out at a Walmart😱

PayPal claims they do not have any protection for in person transactions and claim they rely on Walmart's ID requirements. Practically though, ID is usually not actually required so once account is hacked it's pretty easy to withdraw.

Any recourse?
PayPal wouldn't even provide the location of the Walmart where the cash was withdrawn!

TIA
