    Also also plz don't interact with me that includes commissioning me etc. Sorry but I really depend on my PayPal money and I'm a grown ass adult with adult problems. I can't deal with you trying to run game on poor artists.

    @thebookbakery17 Those people troll and ask for bank login info to “deposit” money and/or for gift cards to “prove you’re real and loyal” so they can send you money through PayPal 🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄

    @ShannonStamey I think I was one of those.If you got a return for Shannon Thompson let me know. I had an address issue with PayPal apparently.

    Just wanna say @PayPal you suck and your customer service is terrible. A wait time for 55min - an hour and a half is ridiculous. It's not that people won't work a call center job either it's probably because you don't pay them enough and are short handed.

    I find it odd that so many wrestlers use their real names on their PayPal accounts. In addition to (further) destroying kayfabe ("It's still real to me dammit!"), there's a very legitimate problem sometimes when I have NO idea who the hell just sent me money or why.

  • ProcterChris
    bruce (@ProcterChris) reported

    @PayPal possibly the worst service ever. 21 days after being paid. Still waiting for money to get to my bank account. Money on hold, then released. Now pending. Pathetic service. Realised why I haven’t used you for 5years. If only you was so slow to take your charges.

    RC @ kinktober (@reallyporning) reported

    @SynDestruction i think paypal has always had a thing about adult content, but typically they turned a blind eye towards stuff like this/nsfw stuff sold through online shops that use paypal. maybe they're cracking down more in general on that. :/

    @adafruit Got mine ordered - but there's some kind of issue with using Amazon Pay. Kept glitching out on me with an unspecified error. Note: I use 2FA on both Adafruit and Amazon. Finally used Paypal to get it done.

    @lisaskyehawke89 I know! It's so frustrating! I was in the middle of a couple of shows too damn it! I did receive an email like an hour ago that Dramafever canceled my automatic payments on paypal. That, and the app not working, made this all too real. 😞

    So the automated voice lady gave me the code I needed to reset my password, created a new one and tried to login only to be told that I tried to login too many times, try again later. Guess I'm waiting until tomorrow to login again. #paypal

    I called @PayPal because I couldn't verify my account via SMS. Before they can fix that, they told me, they're going to need to verify my account via SMS.

    @QA_nna Reading story of PayPal initial problems with their software system & vulnerability.They used man-machine symbiosis to stay in business.None of this would have been possible without that solution. It works in testing to,automated tests discover bugs & humans analyse results

    @PayPal You guys have really gone down the crapper in recent years. If you guys insist on doing text verifications to phones, it would be helpful if you worked out your own kinks before experimenting on us.

    @AskPayPal Please do me a favor & pass my message along. It seems to me PP is doing nothing to make their product more helpful & appealing to customers. But they have no problem looking for ways to gouge us & charge more for services. They already took away pay-later option. They DON'T CARE

    14 years of using @PayPal without a SINGLE issue and for no reason that they are willing to tell me, they have permanently frozen my account and are holding a large sum of money for 6 months. Absolutely terrible to not at least give an explanation. Tell your friends

    @AskPayPal I haven't been able to get into my PayPal account all morning. I haven't received any of the SMS 2FA messages, and I've tried so many times that the site has asked me to reset my password. Of course, when I try to do that, the login still fails.
