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 144059 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 144060 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 144061 '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 144062 customer is. Virtually 100% of online 'Phishing' associated with merchant accounts is done usingrepparttar 144063 PayPal name. And even seasoned web users are being scammed by this technique.

Customers can eliminate most, if not all, ofrepparttar 144064 '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.
