Hopefully now paypal doesn't blow your eardrums out when you launch the app as its initial release did while leaving your earbuds in your ears. I was hoping for a class action over this! :mad:

Is there an alternative to secure online services ? I am fed up with paypals 2 euro charge in each transaction. Would you trust to make payments only with your credit card on eBay and Amazon ?

Been doing CC payments on Amazon for years. No issues.

Perhaps when they start to do the most basic of things, then people might want to continue to use them, rather than jumping ship to the newer competition as soon as it arrives, coming-up the rear (roll-on Apple ID payments, et al!).

A couple of things off the top of my head that annoy me with PP (I'm sure everyone has they're own):

- Cannot NAME cards.
I have several debit/credit cards on my account for different uses, with new cards issued every so often I certainly cannot remember the last 4-digits on them all, in order to chose the one I wish to use at the time. Yet, do PP offer a "description" on their system so I can name the card "Natwest main dc" or "MBNA main cc" (like Apple already realised was useful for users on introduction of Safari Card Autofill): Nope!

- Select payment source.
Can I leave the balance in PP, and just use another card to fund the whole transaction? Nope! I have to spend down on the PP balance first, and top-up with credit from another funding source if needed for the transaction. Why oh why PP? "...just because..." is their reasoning.

- Bad &/or wrongly administered policies.
Hold your funds on ANY prerequisite they feel like, with little-to-no explanation &/or help to resolve the issue: that's Paypal. Shut accounts for similar reasons: that's Paypal. Ignore evidence supplied to them, and find in-favour of the party that failed to supply any evidence: that's Paypal. ...yadda yadda yadda...


Most people are simply forced to use them rather than choosing to (certainly to make Ebay work as sellers/buyers) by a manipulation of factors. The sooner they have more competition the better!
