Ego-thumping PayPal?

Posted on Thursday, November 18th 2010 3:12 pm by menj in Internet, Payment Gateway

These days, whenever I log into my PayPal account I tend to see this notice in the transition window.

Not sure whether this ego-thumping attempt from PayPal is supposed to flatter their users, but I for one am not. In fact it comes across to me as quite arrogant, considering the horror stories they tell about PayPal. Not that I have any problems with PayPal now….but c’mon, is this the impression you want to send out to your users?

      Some publishers that wanted to publish my books only accept and pay with paypal. I tired to open paypal account as a Niegria but met the hurdle of rejections. Please, what can I do?

      What’s the difference between paying online through a checking account’s debit card and paying online through PayPal? What are the PayPal advantages over the internet paying methods existent before PayPal came along?

      So I bought something on ebay but I wasn’t satisfied with my purchase so I returned it. I just got an email stating that my payment has been refunded through Paypal and was given the receipt number and everything. But the problem is, I don’t even have a Paypal account! So I decided to make a Paypal account but now I don’t know what to do to put the money in there because my balance still says $0.00. Can someone help me please?

      I am a teenager and I just made a paypal account and I don’t have a bank account or a credit card. I have a website that gives free money and I have enough money to redeem it on paypal. I want to use paypal to buy things from ebay but to do that I have to verify my paypal account. Is their anyway to verify it without having a bank or credit card. I need it really badly please help me out.

      Okay… well I just sold something on ebay. And the buyer sent me the payment via PayPal. But paypal says that they put the payment temporarily on hold. And I read that the funds will be sent to my balance if I get a positive feedback or if I print a shipping label using PayPal. So I printed the shipping label and am going to send the item tomorrow. But how long will it take for the payment to be released from hold after I printed the shipping label? Anyone with personal experience with this?

      Which type of paypal account should I sign up for – personal, premier, or business? I plan on buying and in the future selling some items of Ebay.

      Also, does paypal take any type of a commission when you sell something and the money goes into your paypal account?

      Paypal’s moneymarket interest rate is around 5% right now, which is competitive, if not just better than, local savings and cd rates. My temptation is to use paypal as a place to store some savings, like up to $8000 over the next year or so. I’m curious if others are doing the same? Are there any reasons not to? It’s still relatively liquid, right?

      I noticed the classics (Ex.To Kill a Mocking Bird and The Outsiders) have a meaning, a message, and story that gives you something to think about. The more new young adult books like The Clique and Gossip Girl which are fun to read but, don’t send a good message. I am I wrong? Did you notice a difference?

      My boss sent me an email at 9pm last night for me to work at 10am this morning and was upset I did not get it. She knows I live an hour from work (so that’s like 12 hour notice) and that since I just moved I didn’t have internet at home. I asked her to call me if she needs me to work a shift so soon but that irritated her. Am I wrong?

      Hey all, I just received noticed from the Property Mgmt company that my roommate and I have 30 days to vacate the house or that our rent will increase another $200/month. Two years ago we signed on for a year lease, and after one year the rental company increased our rent $25/month. We did not renew the lease at this time because the rental company never mentioned anything about a renewal, so I guess we are month-to-month. But, I was under the impression the landlord had to give us 60 days notice, wherease, we had to give the rental company 30 days notice. I don’t know where I got this idea, but I just figured that was the case. So, we are good renters and they are not evicting us for anything we’ve done wrong, just purely business. But, as far as you know, am I right to assume I should have 60 days? I appreciate your help on this and links if you have any.

      My son will graduate AIT in a couple of weeks. He is scheduled to be home on Oct. 22nd. But I am very concerned that he’ll be deployed right away. Does the Army give advance notice? How much? Are the soldiers that got hefty sign-on bonus’s looked at first for deployment?
      Rustin – I want to be very clear that my son is not concerned about deployment. I am his mother and I am the one concerned. My sons heart is in the US ARMY.

      I am still a student and do not have a credit card (although I have an extension of my mom’s) and I want to bid on an international item off eBay. The seller only accepts Paypal payments. Can someone explain to me how exactly does PayPal work, how it will take funds from my account? Thanks guys!

      If I don’t intend to renew my lease, when do I have to tell my landlord so that I can still keep the security deposit assuming no other damage?

      I can’t find this anywhere in my lease agreement. Is a month enough notice?

      We had a lease, but it is up and we didn’t renew. So I assume we are month to month now. Can we just give 30 days notice?

      My in-laws wish to get rid of a disagreeable tenet on their property, they do not have a rental agreement. How much notice do they need to give ? They have given her 30 days but she is saying they must giver her 90 is that correct ?
      We are in NSW Australia.

      I was served a sixty day notice to vacate my current apartment. Then about two weeks later I was served a three day notice to pay or quit after my room-mate failed to pay rent by the deadline. Does one notice supersede the other?

      I am in a rental house with a 6 months contract taking me to 28th august. I am buying a house and need to give notice. What do i need to write in the letter, any points to include? This is the first notice i have given so have no experience and would be grateful for any help!

    • Myles says:

      It used to (or may still) be you had to give 30 days notice. I heard that the law changed and you have to give 60 days notice. Does anyone know if this is true? Or do you know of a website I can refer to that would have these renting laws?

      The tenancy agreement states no less than 30days notice must be given prior
      to the termination of the tenancy.
      Also 20 days notice was given verbally not in writing as stated in the agreement.
      What can I do ?
