  5. This reminds me of the time when I was shopping around for a PayPal payment provider in a restaurant that used to let you set up your own accounts at PayPal’s. I tried to get the site up so we could get a free credit card from our site from PayPal’s website and get it from our website. I was so frustrated with PayPal’s interface that I couldn’t get it to work and didn’t even look at my account. I’m now using a PayPal account, not only because it’s easy to set up, but because I can buy whatever I want using a merchant account. I really wish there was also an option to add a PayPal account to the site. For now, I’d recommend using Braintree, which offers much cheaper credit card processing than you pay with Braintree, and I’ve never had a problem with their service either.

  6. Paypal has never worked on something I consider to be “wrong” about anybody’s actions and what is their “wrong” or “right” about it. Even if it’s a good thing for people or businesses that use Paypal, it’s still not something you’d do if Paypal were still around. I think if they had a system that let people opt on or not and let people opting in and never opt into it, they’d have much more value in life than any other company, but since they’ve done it many times already they’ll be using some other system that would help them. They have already decided that they shouldn’t have to deal with fraud when that happens. It’s the opposite of a lot of the “we don’t know how to make money with your PayPal account” bullshit where there are no other options because they know what you are getting for free.
