Hi all! Just wondering if there is any knowledge around how to avoid the paypal ban? 

 

As much as I hate them loosing my account would cause a lot of restrictions for me.  Have already joined others so don't need recommendations or anything, would just prefer not to have to deal with a ban if I can avoid it. 

 

Many Thanks!

Paypal is evil and not going to hide how I feel about them, they have been on the dark side on & off since 2003, I was with them from the beginning of them! But anyway I have alot of history with this. Lately, it was what I call "the goldylocks years" of 2008-2016 when hardly anyone was closed. Since 2016 ... its apocalypse years (haha). Good thing crypto is here.

 

But.. ahhh here is no way to avoid it as it has spread everywhere, in every arena now and I guess really hitting ebay people hard too. Its now even into accepting commissions from sites. I know of two sites that some would would recognize if I said the names of them. AND it is not the site owners fault (I think they are being watched for awhile before closure)

 

Sorry to say but there is no certain thing to do as I had an account that apparently only 15% had, and did nothing new to cause closure, which got nabbed at the beginning of december - and two new ones in January. And I give up for awhile now.

 

I guess its luck or borrowed time now for the rest. Best thing for you and everyone else is to just dont depend on them, they cant be trusted - obviously.

Not sure there's any way other than that it might help to reduce your transactions to only those absolutely necessary, and try to use your alternatives where ever possible. And, you may already know this, but bear in mind that if they freeze your account, they'll most likely hold your balance for 180 days.

Hi Maryanne, thanks for the reply! They really are giving themselves a bad name right now and well I always say what goes around comes around.... they are a nightmare and so people will flock elsewhere when great options become available.  Too big for their boots it seems, but even the mighty can fall  ;)

Thanks Clare, yes I am trying to work around it by doing exactly that.  I saw on another site there was a notice saying don't let account balance drop under $100 as a suggestion.... not sure I fancy that due to the 180 day hold you mention.  That being said if it is to come I guess I will cope!
