    Note that I love using PayPal, easy service and very trust worthy but these problems are making me doubt all that.

    @AskPlayStation I did try linking Paypal using the ps4 console. I've read the article in the link and the information doesn't apply to the problem that occurs while linking my PayPal account.

    @GoddessAnat and an example for the payment options that encourage problems from entitled content buyers ... use of unsafe and anti-xxx processors like Paypal.

  • shamim_thetruth Shams (@shamim_thetruth) reported

    @myntra 95% of my purchases go to Amazon, out of 5% in Myntra I faced a lot issues. I had been cheated in 3 different occasions. As you cancelled the order I lost Rs.400 PayPal voucher, which was given for 'the first transaction only ', I could use it for buying medicine online etc.

  • red101486 Emma McSpunkerson (@red101486) reported

    Woke up to someone hacking my @PayPal account for $300 worth of shoes and there wasn't a physical way for me to talk to human about someone stealing my money. Cooooooooooooooool. Thanks for the #terrible #CustomerService @AskPayPal #DeletePayPal #WhyAmIStillUsingThis

    @mariamsmadness I don’t know if it helps but for overseas pakistanis ABL. Allied bank issues a paypal based card with account opening. That card works

  • mlevchin Max Levchin (@mlevchin) reported

    @productland @chadloder Every few years I have to re-explain myself on this one. Yes, I did say something like that, and what I meant was “hiring a bunch of engineers from the same CS program early at PayPal helped cut down on eng re-training and design debate.” We all learned the same techniques.

  • Cruiizin Cruiizin (@Cruiizin) reported

    @yozomixer @Riot_Graphics @designershumor @OstrichMedia_ A lot of designers are super quick to push their invoice to my PayPal, but don’t feel like communicating with me if there is any issues with meeting deadlines. I don’t mind stuff being pushed back, shit happens, but it’s frustrating as a consumer when you need to chase product.

  • khalalw Khalal (@khalalw) reported

    “PayPal engineers don’t play hoops.” 😂 Sounds terrible.

  • zemarmot ZeMarmot (@zemarmot) reported

    @stu_axon @GIMP_Official @hodefoting @LILA_asso Liberapay had some issues with their banking intermediary so they had to change. Now you can fund projects through Paypal or Stripe on Liberapay and it works fine. As for inter-country bank transfers, if UK use IBAN too, this is easy. :-)

  • aarond Aaron Dunlap 🗽 (@aarond) reported

    @katecrawford @xeni I cant believe it’s possible to type that whole thing out without exploding in a self-awareness chain reaction holy cow. Someone sat down and said “i’m going to explain to these students why black people and women aren’t right for paypal” and didn’t burst into ten million embers!

    @AskPayPal For @AskPayPal Confirmation texts are taking 26 minutes to arrive. Fix this please.

    @VirginTrains I never saved the book reference either as I went to click on my account and it then asked to me login and then didn’t recognise the details i signed up with. I only have the PayPal receipt.

  • sophiaafterdark 💄Madame Goddess 👠 (@sophiaafterdark) reported

    @AlleriaMystic @GalacticDomme I don't even use it for tarot card readings anymore because PayPal took $100+ for a reading I did. PayPal isn't good for anything. I've had less issue with cashapp but I've heard you still need to be careful.

  • AlleriaMystic 𝕄𝕚𝕤𝕥𝕣𝕖𝕤𝕤 𝔸𝕝𝕝𝕖𝕣𝕚𝕒 𝕄𝕪𝕤𝕥𝕚𝕔🕷🕸 (@AlleriaMystic) reported

    @GalacticDomme I don't use paypal now except for tarot card readings. This was an old account and before I knew PayPal screwed over SWs. ****** sent twice to me. He was nice and I was nice to him. Someone is probably having money problems and trying to claw back everything he can, the loser.

    @BrainGlamour @48dms I don't have a problem with accepting help with this and my PayPal account is on my homepage but I don't want to start a campaign asking for help I did too much of that over the last couple years when I was sick and didn't have any income👍🏻

  • liamzebedee Liam Zebedee [object Object] (@liamzebedee) reported

    @shaykevin Haha I don't think you'd find it so interesting. 50% easyJet flights, hostel confirmations, Paypal receipts, 25% newsletters from various domains, 10% services that don't respect unsubscribe (Gartner, Meetup), and the rest is down to more iteration... :)

    @AskPayPal No problem will send the message over today with all info we have screenshots of conversations with buyer etc. Whatever you need.

  • JerVikes2389 Jerimiah Olson (@JerVikes2389) reported

    @PayPal you guys should be more like @venmo and @CashApp never have issues with pending payments on there ever , this is the 3rd time in 6 weeks a payment sent to me has been sent to pending , usually takes 6 days , I might as well of had him send me a paper check through themail

  • MusketAnna Windlass (@MusketAnna) reported

    I tried sending my friend Alice the money i had on PayPal but it tells me > We are sorry, but we could not complete this payment, because it has been denied by the card issuer. I... i've never had this happen to me before and i don't know what's wrong or how to fix it.

    @GooglePay Absolute joke of a service. No support , or support that "doesnt deal with this issue". Apple pay and paypal are streets ahead of this mess. Sick of hearing "i really understand your frustration" - No you f&*ing dont!

    Thank you @Crunchyroll for continuing to charge me 4 MONTHS after I cancelled my premium subscription. I have contacted you every month about this issue but you can “never do anything”. I have canceled my payments on iTunes AND PayPal.

  • JonesCT A spooky skeleton is inside you!💀👻😈 (@JonesCT) reported

    @subzero21232 @TechDeals_16 Exactly, if you’re vigilant you and check eBay seller ratings you’ll usually be fine. Oh and use PayPal when you do. They’re pretty customer sided if you run into an issue and the seller won’t help. Just make sure you generally shy away from mechanical drives and the likes

    @AskPayPal I have opened a dispute on a purchase I have made on your website but the seller doesn’t response to my messages and the problem hasn’t solved . Please tell me how to guarantee my rights via your website. I’m afraid of losing my money.

  • WendiSteele1975 Wendi Steele (@WendiSteele1975) reported

    @PayPal and @SONYPLAYSTATlON are two companies that seem to make money off the backs of those who can afford it least. Like me a single disabled mom. I have multiple sclerosis and totally disabled. There was an error but it don’t seem to matter it is hurting me financially

  • WendiSteele1975 Wendi Steele (@WendiSteele1975) reported

    Not like @PayPal actually cares about me or if I didn’t authorize them to use the card for that. @SONYPLAYSTATlON can do as they want with ur card. Don’t matter u out another payment method in. Oops an error occurred. But I’m not doing anything to help so what it’s hurting u

    @tonyposnanski I will buy all of your art. Just need your PayPal login information...

  • karen_ugly Snuggles & Wiggle Butts 🐾 (@karen_ugly) reported

    As far as I can tell, once a @PayPal money pool reaches its target $ amount or end date, it shuts down additional money. One way to get around this is to have an insanely high goal, or to up your goal every day or two by small amounts, and to never give updates w/dollar amount.
