PayPal is used for many online transactions, the world’s largest online auction site eBay only uses PayPal so its users can send / receive payments. It is the safest way to transfer money, but problems do exist. These can include the above issues and much more, such as payments not going through, new customers trying to sign-up, transferring of monies between bank and yourself and vice versa etc.

Customers have reported in the past that their debit / credit cards are not being recognised, PayPal normally runs very smoothly indeed without any hiccups. But, from time-to-time issues do arise and we would like to hear your reports – please also add your city / country etc.
