First Ever PayPal Gaming Sale Features PixelJunk Bundle, ‘Don’t Starve’

PayPal is probably the last company I was expecting to start selling games for cheap, but with deals like these, it’s tough to complain. By using Paypal to as your payment method, you’ll be able to score deals on a number of gaming goods like the PixelJunk Bundle, Don’t Starve and its early access DLC, Xbox Live Gold cards, Razr Mouse Pads, and much, much more.

Paypal screwed me over too many times so I stopped using them, This will not change anything.

I have only ever used Paypal for my ebay stuff, is that where they screwed you over? I am curious to know what happened so I can be cautious myself, thanks in advance.

People using false claims to get there money back for something that isn't true at all.

Ebay didn't do anything about it, He got away with it...

Guy said item was faulty, Got item back and was in fully working order... He committed Fraud... Ebay stuck the finger in my face and let him get away with it.

Sounds like it was ebay, not paypal... The exact same thing could have happened if you used a bank account instead of paypal.

And if you got the item back, how was it fraud? Maybe it just didn't work for him for some reason.

I too, would like to know. How was thou screwed?

redknight801275d ago

Yeah, I agree with annus (lol) that this seems more of an Ebay issue than Paypal. Did you end up getting your money back or did you only just get your item back and nothing more? Unfortunate as it is, scamming on Ebay seems kind of easy from what I have heard of and I sell on Ebay sometimes so I am quite cautious. Thanks for your information though, more reason to be cautious, I guess.

I had Paypal charge a credit card that I had deleted (all traces of) 12 months earlier. I even threatened (and genuinely considered) legal action, but decided to simply close my account instead.

They also (along with Ebay) took money from my account from an Ebay sale when the buyer claimed he never received the item (I am fine with these rules). When that buyer was found to be a fraud and have his account banned, they still didn't refund my money.

Paypal are evil.

Always ship with tracking/delivery confirmation. I had this happen to me as well. I wouldn't say PayPal was at fault here. It's the shippers responsibility to prove the item was shipped/received.

Just to add to the paypal sucks club:

If you have more than one credit/debit card on paypal, and you have already linked your bank account, EVEN IF YOU SELECT A DIFFERENT DEBIT CARD AT CHECKOUT, IT WILL CHARGE YOUR BANK ACCOUNT NO MATTER WHAT.

I ordered a Wii U on ebay (from neweggs ebay page) and when paypal came up, I selected my parents card to pay for it (needed it because it was a flash sale and I didn't have the money in my account, but did have it in cash), and then for some reason, it charged to my debit card anyway, the one that I had linked to my paypal account, with no funds, despite the fact that I specifically chose my parents card at checkout. I ended up having to pay a 22 dollar overdraft fee from my bank account because of their terrible, sneaky system, which I don't know if it is deliberate, or just horrible site design, but it's some bullcrap that hasn't changed.

Here's a thread about it that shows other people with the same problem: https://www.paypal-communit...

Now I try and stay away from using paypal as much as I can.
