PayPal scams

Postby robert adams » Mon Nov 10, 2008 9:37 am

I just noticed that paypal is going to be doing some maintenance tonite.
Be prepared for a wave of phishing/scam emails to go out.

If you get an email from paypal make sure it is really from them.

PayPal will almost never send out a message. They will wait for you to login and get your internal messages. If there is a problem with your account you will know about it quickly enough whey you try to login. They are always in control and so don't ever need to contact you. All emails from them are scams.

Payment Processing

Postby paymentp14 » Fri Dec 12, 2008 6:29 am

Hi,
Now consider the outsourced payment processing option. A company that specializes in security is going to be able to implement the required controls, because they are uniquely positioned to do. You can know more information from www(dot)merchantacquiring(dot)co(dot)uk.

you'll get in trouble..paypal is very secure with money transactions. The payer would then have a recept of payment, showing they sent money, and paypal has all your information. At the least, they could request paypal to return their money from your account.

Pay Pal Address?

Postby chutson » Tue Mar 17, 2009 11:57 am

I am new here trying to learn as much as I can about Pay Pal. I have been following post pertaining to everything Pay Pal. I have a Pay Pal business account, but can anyone tell me what is a Pay Pal address? And how do I get one? I appreciate any information that could be provided. Thanks! :?

Welcome Chutson. Not sure I understand your question; but with PayPal everything stems from an email address you have setup for use within your PayPal account. So when someone goes to pay you via PayPal, they would do so using your PayPal email address - and that would be whatever email address you have setup in your PayPal account. If it's a business account you can have more than one email address associated with the same PayPal account.

If that wasn't your question, then please clarify and I'll do my best to answer. :)

OK, I think I understand. When someone sends me a payment I give them the Email address I used to set up my pay pal account. Thank you Traci! :lol:

Yes, you either need to setup a page with a 'buy-it' button that you create at PayPal that will already be configured for payment to go into your account, OR you can log into your PayPal account and send a 'money request' to someone by sending the request to their email address, OR you can just give someone your PayPal email address and tell them how much they owe you and they can log into their PayPal account and send you the money that way. Typically, however, for businesses, they have a page setup with a buy-it button (at the very least - if not a full blown shopping cart that accepts and integrates with PayPal) to make purchasing streamlined, professional and easy for your customers. You need to make it as easy as possible for people to pay you, or else they won't do it.

It depends on your business and your products/services, and how many of those you have, as to what my suggestion would be - but at the very minimum buy-it buttons, but if you have several items, I'd go with a shopping cart - http://mals-e.com is free and works with PayPal and gives you a few more options than just a buy-it button.
