I’ll be switching all payments for online coaching etc over to Paymate.
I know… it’s a pain in the arse to sign up for another payment system but paypal have stolen all the money people sent to me for programs last week and are refusing to let me withdraw it OR refund it to the people who sent it.
One email on Thursday, two support requests through the website on Friday and Sunday and one IRATE phone call just now (Tuesday) and still all anyone can tell me is “we are still investigating”.
Apparently they are known for doing this quite often. Just locking people’s accounts and stealing their money.
Update: eventually paypal very generously granted me access to my money but I am still done with them. The whole thing was ridiculous and unacceptable. Apparently they do this quite often and people have been robbed of thousands upon thousands of dollars.
