This platform allows me to send and receive money from anywhere in the world, is very secure, I can use it to pay for products or services on many pages, and I am satisfied with the benefits they offer me, I can use it from the website or also from the app, which makes it much more practical to send money and verify that I received it.
If there are none of the debit card options for payment, I would use my own debit card on PayPal as the alternative payment, but I would have to keep track of my expenses on my ledger as to not go below the marked cap for the month such as for example any $ within the hundreds.
I have seen some people rant and rave that certain information was needed to resolve their case. It's typically proof of delivery and things like that. I don't blame PayPal for requiring I prove an item never arrived when tracking says otherwise. As someone who runs a company and deals with the same situation, I'd say it's fair practice. Once I contacted UPS and received their delivery information and presented it to PayPal, boom! I got my refund. Keep in mind, tracking is NOT proof, request GPS location of scan, label information (could be address wrong), etc. If they made it too easy, it would be taken advantage of and buyer protection would likely no longer exist.
During Black Friday I purchased 4 orders from Finish Line, come Cyber Monday all of the orders were canceled and "refunded". I contact them and I get told to wait, so I did. After 48 hours I email them again, I get told to again wait. So I do, after another few days I'm frustrated and get told to wait again. Finally they say that on their end the money has already went through and I should have it. They told me to call PayPal, I was transferred to a specialist (Arin, or Aaron) who actually wanted to help me, but he said that Finish Line had to authorize the refund and PayPal literally couldn't do anything till they do. I said that it's been over a week since they "refunded" me, I ask if I can get into a 3-way call with Finish Line and he agrees.
Arin completely explained what was going on to the Finish Line rep and told her that PayPal couldn't release the funds to me since Finish Line hadn't given them the funds to begin with. The Finish Line rep then escalates the case and says to wait 24 hours. At this point I'm fuming mad because I've already waited so long, but thanks to Arin I've made huge progress than I would've on my own. I thank Arin for staying on the line with me to discuss with Finish Line. Just a minute ago I got my full refund. So thank you Arin, the best customer service I've had in a long time.
Hi. I just wanted to write a review and to say a Big Thank you to the customer service and people who helped me to resolve my issue with Siren Ltd company and manage to get me the refund from them. After the company treated me so badly and they didn't provide service I paid for and they refused to pay me a refund. PayPal stepped out and managed to get the refund back from them. Thank you so much for your support. Without you I wouldn't be able to get any hold of my money back.

I currently have a credit on my account after going round & round with them last month when, without permission, withdrew money from my bank account. The credit is less than $25.00. I've tried to transfer this money to my bank. THAT'S WHERE THEY TOOK IT FROM!! NOT ALLOWED!!! I then tried to apply it towards a payment --- BALANCE EXCEEDS THE $25.00! NOT ALLOWED!!!
Evidently the only way I can apply it is if I make a purchase (on which I will be charged interest) or if the remaining balance is $25.00. Since Synchrony bought these loans from PayPal they have become loan sharks. Whether it does any good or not, I am reporting them to the BBB & the Treasury Dept Comptroller. You can download a complaint form by searching "who regulates credit card practices." They say that consumers were notified of these changes when Synchrony took over -- I can find no such document. My goal -- pay them off, close my account as well as any other Synchrony accounts. They are building a predatory monopoly by buying out store cards. Just look in your wallet.
We booked a London car service to go to Gatwick Airport. We paid by Visa through PayPal portal. The payment went through and we received confirmation our payment was taken by PayPal, but never got confirmation from the cab service that our car was booked. Phoned the car service. No record of our booking. Advised to contact Paypal. Called, spoke to operator for 20 minutes then a supervisor came-on the line. Explained the whole issue again providing credit card info, and the Paypal reference number and he continued to ask our account balances and then hung up, and he had our number to call back so he clearly hung up on our complaint. PAYPAL service sucks.
Do not trust PayPal to be on your side in a dispute. They will do their job in protecting you! Had open shut case in my favor for item that didn't work. Had contacted seller trying to return items which where guarantee but got a runaround so I disputed charge. For some reason PayPal said because they didn't work was not enough to decide in my favor! DON"T TRUST PAYPAL.
You only find out about a bad company when you have problems. My account was hacked. Someone ordered an expensive item to be shipped to an unauthorized address to a name that was not mine. PayPal should have stopped this but did not. I got the runaround from PayPal and they said it was an approved transaction. They said they would call the vendor but did not (I did instead). This company is a shell. I am actually better off going direct to vendors as my credit card company can void these transactions directly.
DO NOT USE THIS SERVICE. I have to refund all the money I've received from them now and use Stripe or another service. Absolute joke. Absurd customer service. Being placed on hold for half an hour and then being completely useless. My funds are on hold and when I ask their customer service reps they keep telling me to visit the resolution center and provide no other information. I already did that, that's I'm calling you now. Keeps giving me roundabout answers that don't help. What is the point? You're just wasting both our times. I asked to talk to a supervisor and this guy said I can't do that. Customer service rep name is Al. His employee number is #**. He and the other reps I've talked to should not be working anywhere.
