    Due to an unauthorized charge on my account, I kissed paypal bye-bye earlier this year. If I had to acquire something and paypal was the only means, I'd open another account with them, get my stuff, and close the account as quickly as I could. This situation has not arisen so far, and I get by wonderfully well. Personal checks, money orders, cashiers checks -- they're just like credit; they just take longer.

    I'll be adding up to two more methods of payment on the new version of the site. So far I have been lucky with paypal 5yrs and not a single incident + used pretty much daily. My only gripe with paypal so far is that their site is very sluggish..

    Usually you "back up" your PayPal account with a credit card. It is always an option (in tiny small print) to use when paying via PP.

    I do this for 2 reasons:

    1) I want the freakie flyer miles I get from my CC (that's how I get to Tucson)

    2) I can always cancel a "bogus" charge on my CC direct with the card company. They are very receptive, espescially when you tell them it is a PP related charge!

    My first experience with paypay s_cked. That's why I haven't and will not ever use it again. Isn't paypal owned by e-bay now? That's another source of ripp-offs and scams. I wish they'd get a handle on things.

    There is a version of Paypal where you do not need a Paypal account to send money. The intended recipient needs a commercial account with them that costs them money to run though.

    Like some others, I will never "join" Paypal again, but I am happy to send one-off payments via a Paypal merchant's account using a CC if that is the simplest/cheapest method for Sean.

    Cheers, Bob.
