Re: [midatlanticretro] Paypal
- Hi Gang:
I guess there's good and bad about just about everything. For my
part, I simply "funded" my PayPal balance via my checking account.
That's also helped with redeeming funds from PayPal to the checking
account. But, I don't usually carry a large balance in PayPal,
usually just enough to handle small transactions with ham radio
buddies, and stuff like that.
When you sell something on ebay, and the buyer pays with PayPal (not
uncommon).. if they buyer's account is funded with a credit card, then
-you- the seller get to pay a fee to PayPal to handle the
transaction. That does not happen if the buyer has funded the PayPal
account with cash from a checking account.
