Like I said, been with eBay for quite some time. Paypal for about as long. I don't champion them, as I have heard (and have seen by some of their rules) that they are on the other side of the tracks politically, as a company, from where I stand ... but it puts cash in my pocket. Pays for the fines & taxes of everyday Massachusetts life ... at least partially.
Never had a problem with either one ..... but I know a few of my buddies who screwed up some shipments, being rookies, and had cash extorted from their accounts with no due process ... not unlike our current government systems today.
Makes me want to bail ... but I sell so much junk ... gotta roll with the enemy to get what I need .. for now I guess.
EBay & Paypal fees make it hard to turn a profit, so most of my stuff ends up on Craigslist for months and months and months. Don't much like using them either. That chicken's foot symbol they use is a red flag ... but free is hard to beat. Just got to deal with hippies flagging your ads if you scare them too much, and calls from 40 year old virgins from their mom's basement.
