I been using Paypal for years and also have their reward card. I would not use any other account except for them. There is always a reason why Paypal would close an account due to inactivity or maybe they have tried to email the account holder by email and the email came back. Like any kind of an account that holds money, you need to keep it updated.

I have not been on the site for awhile, but it is a debit card you can get so you don't have to worry about transferring your money to your bank account. You can just use the card instead. The rewards is cash back everytime you use your card. You get your rewards in your paypal account once a month. Can't remember what percentage the cash back is, liek 1 or 2 percent.

In the 5 years that I have been using Paypal, I must say that I have been very satisfied with their level of service. I have not had problems with using Paypal apart from one time when they suspected some third party trying to access my account. During that time, they sort of put my account into "unverified" mode while they did the investigations. They even required me to deposit $600 into my Paypal account to resolve the issue. I was a bit hesitant because that was a large sum of money and I was afraid if it would go missing. But I took that step of faith and deposited that amount. Lucky for me, my account was restored and I got back my $600. So based on my experience, I can say that Paypal is good and genuine, and they really take steps and precautions to ensure our accounts are safe and sound.

I've been using Paypal for quite some time now and so far I haven't encountered any problems yet. I think lots of problems with Paypal have to do with accounts being hacked. If you want your account to be secure just make sure you read the security guidelines on Paypal's website.

There are indeed people who got their account limited and are unable to get their money out. However, the cases are quite isolated cases so majority of people are not facing any problem with paypal. Just be careful when trading virtual goods through paypal.

One bad thing of paypal is they dont support receving payments in all countries in the world, so its quite inconvenient for users who live in countries where they dont get payments, else its the most popular, fast way to purchase goods and send money. I feel Alertpay is better in terms of worldwide coverage. Only that its not very much accepted by many sites.

personally i think that its a great way to get money from sites that pay. I've tired other sites like paypal, but it wasn't the same. most other sites ask for a lot more information just to verify your account. another thing that i like about paypal is that i can use it on eBay if i wanted to and other site that use paypal to buy things. personally i wouldn't believe that. I've never had any problems with them and I've had an account with them for 5 years now.

I have been using paypal for the past 3 years. I have not had any issues with them. Infact I love paypal as they are the only reliable way to get our online earnings. I have also seen many negative comments about paypal.. Some of them are from admins who tried to fool their members. They say that paypal has limited their accounts or blocked their accounts and that they are not able to pay their members. But I'm comfortable and happy with paypal.
