PayPal Dedication Can Leave Your Business Exposed!

Written by Drew Michael


To many web users, PayPal is notrepparttar kind of pal they had envisioned when starting their online business. Long on track history but overwhelmingly unpopular among merchants and buyers one is left to wonder why PayPal has continued to grow.

Ignorance and lack of knowledge has a lot to do with PayPal's growth. Many merchants are not aware ofrepparttar 144038 potential problems they can encounter depending solely on PayPal for their online payment processing. That is, until they encounter potential customers that won't use PayPal to purchase their products or services. Or worse, they have their PayPal merchant account suspended and funds frozen without notice, effectively shutting down their business.

If you really want to get some idea as torepparttar 144039 depth of PayPal's unpopularity, you need only to do a search on Google. Type in "PayPal Complaints" and click enter and see what happens. Over 335,000 results and still counting. No other online merchant processor comes close to having this many dissatisfied customers.

'Phishing' is another reason many customers and potential customers are steering clear of PayPal. Not that PayPal is doingrepparttar 144040 'Phishing', but they are certainly not making a big enough effort to stop it. And why should they? They are not 'Phishing' and they are not losing money. Onlyrepparttar 144041 customer is. Virtually 100% of online 'Phishing' associated with merchant accounts is done usingrepparttar 144042 PayPal name. And even seasoned web users are being scammed by this technique.

Customers can eliminate most, if not all, ofrepparttar 144043 'Phishing' associated with online purchasing by simply using a different service. It is that simple! And there are plenty of good alternatives to PayPal out there that are hungry for your business. None are as big as PayPal and few have been around as long as PayPal. But they are reputable and offer a wide variety of services. And you most likely will never receive any 'Phishing' messages using their names.

Why is life so difficult

Written by paul green


I have always been hard working and have never had any time off work for sickness, I am a person that can be doing several things at once and remember everything that I have done. The business that I had I loved, it was hard but enjoyable. I had a contract to deliver business mail throughoutrepparttar country. With a business to run and 120 staff to look after I overlooked one main person,repparttar 143880 service centre manager.He did not like my success and overnight I lost every thing. Now beingrepparttar 143881 sort of person never to give up I decided to try and set up and run an internet business, not knowing atrepparttar 143882 time how hard it was going to be. I spent thousands of dollars on products that people told me I needed (big mistake). Looking back overrepparttar 143883 past 6 months I see myself as being very stupid, but then I sit in my chair and think, what aboutrepparttar 143884 thousands of other people inrepparttar 143885 same position as me. Now Iím a person that had no computer knowledge, I didnít even know how to turn a computer on. But one day while surfing onrepparttar 143886 net I came to an interesting website and again I bought a few books, but these were different,repparttar 143887 author is a man called Jim Edwards,repparttar 143888 books were very informative, just what I needed. It gave me a big boost to carry on. I must admit at one stage I was onrepparttar 143889 brink of giving up, The best thing aboutrepparttar 143890 books were thatrepparttar 143891 author told you everything, he held nothing back I have seen other people selling items but you always had to buy other products to compliment what you had just bought. This author isrepparttar 143892 only person who hadrepparttar 143893 time and decency to e-mail me with any problem I encountered onrepparttar 143894 way; I can trust him to give me good sound advice.
