    The controversy begins that which is the best payment method . I have personal experience with both and found the Alert Pay much better than pay pal as far as the Coverage and payment solutions are concerned . Dear members what do you think about the both payment processors. There is also an other payment processors which is epay.vg a fast growing online payment service . please observe and reply which is the best for small business owners .

    I also liked the service and fees of Alertpay but I will still use paypal since this is what the majority of the people who buy and sell use.

    I've never heard of AlertPay (googling it right now). It's good to know that paypal will have competition. Competition brings a lot of benefits for us, the users of paypal/alertpay right :D ?

    Paypal just recently accepted to do business with my country. AlertPay is much better. paypal has a history for freezing accounts and stuff. I would only use paypal to accepts some small change for some small business, I wouldnt rely on Paypal with Big cash. I would rather with AlertPay.

    I don't have much experience with it but I can say that you can't add fund from PayPal. You have to add fund from credit card or bank.

    PayPal sucks, many user mentioned in many times but still people paying via PayPal :)

    Ohhh yeah Paypal is great with big payments, that's why when anyone sends, recieves or debits over $1500 they lock your account instantly and demend your passport, phone confirmation, credit card information, bank account information, proof of residence and ability to debit and recieve funds :)

    Many people are going through Paypal limitations and problems and are having their money held for 180 days. Paypal are criminals if you study their TOS because they are breaking U.S. law and avoid being sued because it costs over $8000 to bring them to court. If you don't believe me take a look at this thread which explains everything and involves attorneys and lawyers threatning to sue Paypal: http://paypalsucks.com/forums/showthread.php?fid=20&tid=27174&old_block=0

    Paypal is good to use until you got limited like I did and really see what they're like...they're litteraly avoiding the law and hardly ANYONE can stand up to them.

    Letter sent to attorney about Paypal:

    An email I just sent my attorney tonight...

    David:

    I’m wondering about the legality of the verbiage used in the section describing both the “restricted activity” and the “actions PayPal may take”.

    The “Restricted Activity” is described as “[having] a credit score from a credit reporting agency that indicates a high level of risk associated with your use of the Services”

    My question here is to be legally binding wouldn’t they need to specify what “indicates a high level of risk”? I mean, is a score of 700 acceptable? What about 635? 595? Where is that line? And if there is no definitive line, then the decision is being made subjectively by a person, not actually based upon specifics of the credit report. It just seems like to be legally enforceable this contract would need to specify the conditions more clearly than this. If my funds are being held by authority of this section of the contract titled “restricted activities” and I didn’t know that my credit score “indicated a high level of risk” (which I COULDN’T know since they don’t specify what they consider “high risk”), then I didn’t knowingly or willingly breach this agreement.



    The “Actions We May Take” sections states that PayPal has the right to “hold your funds for up to 180 Days if reasonably needed to protect against the risk of liability”.

    My question regarding this section is similar to above. Who decides when it is “reasonably needed”? And do they not have to show me or explain to me WHY they feel that it is reasonably needed? The simple fact that my credit rating is not stellar doesn’t seem to be reason enough alone to hold the funds, as evidenced by PayPal’s own use of other “actions” in different situations (10.2). PayPal has constructed this agreement in a manner that absolves them of any accountability. Under this agreement they can, for absolutely ANY reason at all, freeze pretty much anyone’s account by simply saying that “they” feel that it’s reasonably needed to protect against the risk of liability.

    David, when you have a moment I’d like to discuss the above with you. The more I sit and think about what’s going on the more I feel like I want to DO something. If I were to decide that the principle was more important than the money, can I bring any kind of suit against them challenging their contract’s legality and enforceability? If so, are there grounds to file for punitive damages since it appears that PayPal has knowingly and willingly constructed this agreement to exploit its customers? I’m just curious.



    I trust that you know much more about this than I do, that’s why I hired you… so if you disagree then fine… but it seems to me that based simply upon the argument I made above any judge or jury in the country would find against PayPal… so I’m confident that attorney’s fees and court costs will be recovered in judgment (which is why I’m so willing to move forward)… but, like I said, are there any grounds for more in punitive damages?

    Let’s talk when you get a chance – preferably before you draft the letter, in case we decide to go a different direction.
