Paypal is good for Buyers but sucks for Sellers. I've never had a problem with 5 years of using it untill last year. 2 guy within a month stuck me with a refund and kept the parts, paypal lets them get away with it. They will always side with the buyer on a dispute. But the kickers of it, think one was a 300.00 deal, they charged me 3% fee when I got paid, when they took the money back out they charged me 3% more instead of charging the jerk who was scamming me.

Another guy sent me a email telling me he'd send the product back if I paid him "more" money then he paid me. The guy wanted a extra $20-50.00 on a 65.00 part. I sent this to paypal and they still let the guy keep the money without sending me my parts. I use it but I am more careful with it now.

I get a lot of people using pay pal and it does suck and the fee's are high also i would rather take a credit card it is cheaper for me and i have had a buyer do the same thing tome paid then filed a complaint and kept the parts and it was all new parts i also sent pay pal all the info and pic's of the items and nothing it is a good deal for some one wanting to rip you off.

You hit the nail on the head. Ebay and pay pal SUCK. 3% for WHAT????? Seller gets the shaft everytime. Plus you can't give buyers negative feedback but they can give it to the seller. So, if they decide not to buy the stuff they bid on they don't have to and they can give you negative feedback.
What a great deal. :roll:

Not true .. I've had 2 jerks in the last 6 months who got all the money back including shipping and kept the good parts. Paypal sucks !!

The fee varies after so many dollars, the higher the dollar amoun the less percent they want.

Wish I knew how they worked it. In my case, they sent me the wrong item. I had to pay the shipping back on the wrong item, plus I had to pay the original shipping of it to me. When I complained to Paypal, they said even though it was not my fault I was shipped the wrong part, rules were rules. I ended up getting the original buying price back, so it cost me 19 in shipping on an $8.00 purchase...
