Alas PayPal, I Thought I Knew You Well
I've been using PayPal for years. Recently I have run into a PayPal wall.
I have tried to send money to a book illustrator for one week. I have talked to several tech support people. I have tried two different computers and three different browsers and ALL of the Paypal options to send this money. I have paid this same illustrator as recently as December for her work. Now sending money to
be impossible. Is there some government boycott or regulation that I am unaware
of? I am mystified as to Paypal's inability to solve this problem. A
transaction of less than 5 minutes in December has now cost me hours of my time
and damage to my reputation due to my inability to pay for work that was done. Bosnia
One of PayPal's customer service reps suggested my illustrator invoice me and I pay her that way. I just tried to do that and got another error message.
Paypal international payment has a major problem.
After speaking to my fourth customer service rep today, I am no closer to sending payment to my illustrator who happens to be in
. I have WASTED 5 hours or
more in the last 7 days trying to get an answer as to why a payment will not
process. I have gone through the same diagnostic procedure with very pleasant
customer service reps multiple times, multiple browsers, multiple computers and
multiple headaches. I posted on this page and received a message to message,
which I did, a note said immediate response is normal. I got NO response from
posting here. Bosnia
Transferwise is a very inexpensive method of sending funds internationally. Look into it!
If reviewing a product, it may have been received free of charge. That will NEVER have a bearing on my recommendations.
