    Let me get this straight; I shouldnt re-use the same password for accounts, but also shouldnt write them down? I have 2 credit cards, 1 bank account, a paypal, 3 gambling apps and a host of online shopping ones. College eric consumed far too much jungle juice to remember all that

  • RetroMotherwell Retro Motherwell (@RetroMotherwell) reported

    @NBA2K Server Updates: Max Rank 94 to 99 ballers getting bored, so what online cash tournaments can you create in Club 2K? @CashApp or @PayPal sponsors? What will The Cruise Ship provide to keep players motivated? Why does the Story Line age our My Player? Next Gen & Current

    @o_galibert @bobpoekert The way I see it, if you could solve the value stability problem (*which nobody has*) it could be an alternative to paypal/credit cards which - Downside: Lacks fraud protection - Upside: Easier to send across state borders - Upside: Mastercard can't prohibit types of transactions

  • fritzhelder Fritzzzz (@fritzhelder) reported

    @AskPayPal I’m locked out of all my accounts because you keep sending verification text to an old number. Your website says to “log in” and change the number BUT I CANT login without the text code sent to the old number ! WTF!!!

  • RosaleeMayeux Rosalee Mayeux (@RosaleeMayeux) reported from Los Angeles, California

    @PayPal Wrong vendors paid? You need to clean up your app problems. Nothing to do with a bank or any transaction that could not have been avoided by you placing their identification details on the pay page. This mistake is happening again and again. FIX IT.

    I need help with twitch affiliate ;w;.. Im trying to fill up the payout method part but everytime after i submit my paypal info it redirect me back to the affiliate onboarding page and ask me to login again and fill up the same things again><"""

  • Dagg_17 Dagg17 (@Dagg_17) reported

    @Paypal has a security flaw that can leak personal info to tippers even if you have a business account. I contacted PayPal support with the info and my case was closed due to "no technical issue." Please find another way to accept tips for your own safety. #TwitchStreamers

  • pennywhispered oh penelope are you filled with ey’re (@pennywhispered) reported

    @tory_aoi i figure either: no one showed up to open the store and the computer knows. card machine/paypal machine is down. or my account is locked because of either: a) trying to do a scheduled order with paypal looked suspicious or b) my delivery instructions last week had the word "****"

  • Va1tiel ✨val✨ | local cenobite stan (@Va1tiel) reported

  • ZoeStaiger Zoe (@ZoeStaiger) reported

    @AskPayPal Why can no one help me with an issue I’m having?

  • OhHappyDays14 Oh Happy Days! (@OhHappyDays14) reported

    @iiHeartNae @PayPal @AskPayPal I hear you! I have been trying to fix a dispute with PayPal/Synchrony Bank since April! They DO NOT GIVE MONEY BACK FOR ANY REASON, IMO. I wish you all the best luck but I would suggest YOU NEVER USE PAYPAL/SYNCHRONY BANK!

  • jessiepare Jessie Paré (@jessiepare) reported

    @AskPayPal i am desperate for help. I work with 4 small organizations that use you to process CC payments for member dues. For some reason all four logins are not working and there is no way to reset. When we reach out for help we are told we don’t own the accounts

  • Jeffreyforce Jeffreyforce (@Jeffreyforce) reported

    @AskPayPal Hey! I cant add money to my paypal account with iDEAL. I get an error saying: Service unavailable for your PayPal account what can i do about this?

  • cconstab Colin Constable 💙 (@cconstab) reported

    @AskPayPal SCAM Seller 'sells' something, it never arrives. Buyer raises an issue with PayPal the seller provides a tracking number. PayPal denies any claims as 'seller provided proof of delivery' The tracking number is real but not to the buyers address. I have evidence..

  • hanbinniepyeon 𝙖𝙣𝙖 (@hanbinniepyeon) reported

    maybe someone can make a thread of IDs who can help with ticket purchasing for anyone who can’t due to vpn / paypal / credit card issues? like for each country? that way it’s easier probably?

  • sharklancestan Shark (HAPPY BI MONTH) (@sharklancestan) reported

    @_another_tina_ Alright thanks for the response. Unfortunately if you don't accept Stripe or VISA I cannot commission you as I am unable to open a PayPal account due to past debt issues. A shame, but best of luck with getting the slots filled!

  • sim_kern Sim Kern (@sim_kern) reported

    Earlier this year it took me about 6 months to get paid for another article. It seems like outlets either PayPal you right away, or you have to take a part-time job hounding them for your couple-hundred dollars they owe. Is this just a me problem or systemic?


    @NeedsMoreDakka Uh, my DMs are open tho Although i am closed for now due to Paypal issues im having at the moment

  • IainGrimm Iain Metcalf (@IainGrimm) reported

    . @JustEatUK Is your payment system down as I have tried 2 different cards and Paypal via the app and through the desktop site and it keeps getting declined. Bank is ok as made a small purchase elsewhere to test

  • ZoeStaiger Zoe (@ZoeStaiger) reported

    @darthdevi @PayPal @PayPalIN I know they’re awful. Can’t even get a response to an issue I’m having.

  • zariaaryana Katie Perry (@zariaaryana) reported

    I see now im funa run into a problem with paypal.

  • deathbeach_ deathbeach (@deathbeach_) reported

    @WalktheRubicon @DocumentingBTC Remittances are money from one country to another. Venmo and paypal are not in every country and you have to have a bank account. Bitcoin allows banking for the unbankable. The real issue is that twitter kicks you off for not following the narrative.

  • howie_the_cynic Howard_the_Cynical_Duck (@howie_the_cynic) reported

    the fact I have to an account for all major retailers, befriend bots, not use certain checkout options (like PayPal, CashApp Pay, etc.) because it literally adds 45 extra seconds which could mean you don’t get a PS5?! I don’t remember this being an issue ever before lmfaoo

  • GavJust JustGav (@GavJust) reported

    @AskPayPal hi there. Trying to withdraw money from my PayPal Acc but I keep receiving an error message

  • matthiasdebern matthias CTV APO (@matthiasdebern) reported

    @lnbig_com It’s a PayPal with an easier escape hatch. I don’t like it either. I don’t see a problem though, I can still send you sats if I desire and they can’t do anything about it. This doesn’t change that.

  • lurknewt claud MISSES TEEN WOLF | 11:11 (@lurknewt) reported

    @AmazonHelp hi i am having issues with my debit card i am wondering if i can pay via paypal instead

  • D3stiny_Sm4sher Destiny-Smasher 🏳️‍🌈🏳️‍⚧️(#BLM) (@D3stiny_Sm4sher) reported

    I did track down the DA message exchange we have, so I have the receipt in that sense (though it seems too far back for Paypal to remember?) And in their defense, they were offering to do like five characters for $50 or some ****? Which was WAY underselling their work.
