I love the idea of paypal and the market penetration of paypal. But as a service – it still has a long way to go. Paypal is slower than slow in adding funds from a Canadian bank account. In this modern age where electronic transfers shuffle funds quickly, I am shocked at how long it takes paypal to move funds from a Canadian bank (6-8 days and counting).
Socialwisdom.ca is ours. A dns registration on godaddy with some wordpress hoops to jump thru and I should have our domain active. And damn wordpress (I love wordpress!) but they accept ONLY paypal payments for domain mapping upgrades. And so I find myself starting up a new business paypal account. (errr.. as a ‘power seller’ on kijiji and craigslist, I have my paypal personal resources but I am loath to mix up accounts).
Importantly, I never hook paypal up to the mother ship – that is, the main bank account. My husband did that for his ebay purchases back in 2005 or 2006 and, guess what?!? we had $1000 removed from our bank account in a fraud paypal action. It took two weeks for paypal to return the money. Yikes – so now, we add a small account of $50 bucks to INGDIRECT and hook up and verify the bank account to paypal.
Except, as I said – it takes 7-8 days for fund transfer even on a verified bank account. What t f?!
So.. I wait and wait for paypal to clear. ARGH
