I'm not too sure how paypal works really...wish I could be more help

no problem just looking for feedback because i live in a bit of a vacume right now. thanks for replying pretty ladie :O)

I don't use paypal anymore, not since an unauthorised payment went out of my account. It was only £57.99, but it was right before last xmas and paypal didn't give a shit and said it wasn't a fraudulent withdrawl, never mind that we'd never heard of the person withdrawing the money before or ordered anything.

It came from our bank account so they got our money back for us, after a couple of months of course...it was a huge pain...

yeah maybe it was your post about it that has worried me. i've told others that money can be taken without you consent and they just don't seem to understand....i don't keep money in my checking account anyway(except for aol payment) but it's still worrysome

I've never used Paypal to receive a payment, but I've made payments before and I have it linked to my checking account with no issues. I only really use it for E-Bay, though, and they've got extra security. I keep no extra funds in the account ever so that may be why I've had good luck with it.

i need a way to accept payments if i want to make money with my art so i may have to use it just on that basis.....just wanted to get a lil more feedback before i went any further

Here's an idea. Set up a separate "work" account with a bank that allows you to have free accounts. Any time you get money through Paypal, transfer it straight from your work account to your regular checking or savings account. That should minimize any issues you might have.

yup that has been a thought but i'm not sure if its worth the headache of having a third account since i don't really keep any money in my checking account anyway...the worry is that i'd have nothing in the account and someone would cause an overdraft and i'd have fees on top of fees...but it's a small chance of something like that so it might be worth the risk
