    I am ******* done with paypal. Had the receiver not accept a payment (sent in wrong currency), and now they are holding that money (even though another transaction was made immediately afterwards in the proper currency) with no explanation as to why.

    So, what experience do people have with paypal alternatives? I am so ******* done with their horrible customer service.

    Amazon Payments is another service, but much less popular.

    As much as Paypal may have its quirks, it works for me 99% of the time and the security of it is enough to keep Paypal as my choice money sender.

    This was the payment for the two pieces that arrived to you yesterday.

    I paid, reversed payment, paid again. They are now holding the first refund even after it already came out of my bank account and nobody can tell me why.

    Did they place a temporary hold on the funds? Sometimes they can place a hold for a day or two to make sure there is no funny business. I assume you have contacted paypal to show proof of the second payment.

    Yeah they have been on hold for five days now. I've called and emailed with no response back yet.

    It's funny how they had no problem taking the money from my account but it's a hassle to get it back.

    That's the nature of the beast. And if you owe them, they want the money right away. Lol good luck on your situation.

    I have used Amazon payments and it went smoothly. Similar rules to PP but not sure about that side of the business

    Hopefully they will release the funds soon.

    When I have ever had a problem they reslobe it quickly. PP needs to step up their game and help you.

    They like sitting on people's money, I guess they count the pennies they make in interest.
