PayPal... How do they do?

Discussion in 'PayPal' started by selling vcc, Dec 2, 2007.

    Hi,

    I saw that there are many DPers that accept PayPal for online jobs (like manual directory submission here on DP).
    SEMrush
    They do not even set a condition on iTrade or reputation before accepting PayPal.

    How do they manage to protect themselves from scams (Paypal chargebacks, stolen accounts...)???...!

    Most things on DP for online jobs are through PayPal yes!

    Mostly things like charge backs do not normally happen very often on DigitalPoint!

    To stop Chargebacks just trade with Funded PayPal or Bank Funded PayPal, not from Credit Card.

    To Answer your Question

    First of all not all persons on DP are scammers
    Second Many are bloggers and they get payments for Blog Postings
    They Get Payment from Various Services
    When Services are given then Many do tend to pay via Credit Cards but still They first fund their accounts or something like that and then give away funds or something like this.

    Why rip someone off when you can get so much work, so cheap? You do get the odd idiot but most people here are honest and wont risk their reputation.

    The matter is not only of honesty. !. ! Most of you should know that if your payers a/c gets limited for any reason the PP will ask you to show them the invoices or some proof of shipping for the payment you had got from that payer. If you fail to show such proof the payment gets reversed. Plus if yours is the new a/c or if you have very low payment before PP may also limit your a/c if you fail to show them the proof of shipping or invoices. This is the most annoying thing about which OP wants to ask. In such case if the member is old with good reputation & high itrader you can ask him to pay by other means as his/her payment got reversed but suppose you got the payment from newbies or from the person who got banned after that you have almost zero possibility of getting back your payment.

    I guess it's boils down to a matter of trust, yes there are scammers on dp but In my time here I've only encountered one and I got my money back so the truth of the matter is ALOT of honest people are on digitalpoint. If you have a bad feeling about a transaction don't do it.

    For trades, I would rely on iTrader feedback and talking to them on the phone if it's over a 20$ dollar deal if possible. It may sound extreme but talking to them and asking simple questions reduces fraud A LOT.

    I wonder why they don't do some type of mandatory payment stragegy, where the user sends the payment (PayPal does a check to see if sufficient funds are available). PayPal holds the payment, the seller recieves the money and accept. After that the money is kept in holding until the buyer says that he has recieved the good, once the seller gets the reply and accepts to recieve the payment - the money is completely transferred.

    To stop the scamming, the money is kept in holding, stopping the buyer from cancelling the payment last minute, hence all the buffers between the payment. Just my idea any way.

    After the buyer receives the item, couldn't they still say that they didn't? Unless I'm misunderstanding something, it doesn't sound plausible.

    Then in that case, a dispute is made, but because the money is kept in holding in PayPal, until both agree to something, the buyer would get nothing out of this. Until an agreement has been made the money stays in holding. No party would get anything out of this.

    this implies that paypal run some sort of escrow service which I dont think they do.

    If this were the case then escrow.com wouldnt a) exist, or b) use paypal

    :confused:

    I know they don't offer that service, but I am saying it would prevent a lot of the 'buy now, don't get paid later' scams.

    I actually don't think you can tell the difference. Can you?
