I have always used Paypal for business; micro and contract work as well as for receiving payments from my own site. All good so far, I would recommend them.

If I still used both MB  was always better, however, this is from sometime ago n might not be valid anymore...

Pretty good video, I was expecting something with wild claims but it seems pretty balanced.
"using Paypal as your primary bank, even though it is not a bank, is a dumb idea"
"Paypal is not a right"

Fair enough. Use it as intended and play by the rules, you'll be fine seems to be the main point of the video.

If you want to do something "unusual" or outside the scope of simple transactions, make very sure you know where you stand or use another company.

No sh*t. So basically read the ToS before opening an account? Oh boy.

Thats the same as wishing DT to hell because you have to wait 6 months do delete a photo. You signed the contract up front. Dont come complaining afterwards.

Well. I am one of those paypal haters. I think it is a fraudulent organization. They literally invent laws which do not exist to be able to freeze money of users, especially in the EU. I think you will have lesser problems if you are from the US, never travel, never use ebay, etc. Furthermore, The new CEO of paypal recently admitted that the attitude of the company in the past was noth "the best" and he tries to change it...lets see if this works.

To the more pragmatic POV since I have used both for many years:
- MB has the better exchange rate.
- Paypal took always 5 days to send me my money to my Bank account while Moneybookers diod so in one or two days max.

I would not recommend PP, see here why:

newbielink: [nonactive]
newbielink: [nonactive]
newbielink: [nonactive]

But off course this will provoke 20 posts like "I always used it and never had a problem" just like some people say :My grandpa smoked for 50 years and he is now 70, so smoking is definitely not bad for your health" lol

Unfortunately velocicarpo is extremely right.
I have the same problems now, already three years later.
By paypal refuse to remove my limit because of the "wrong address" by comparing Latin writing with Bulgarian spelling of the home address. It has not been changed for 40 years!
I wrote to them several times but they did not meet.
So they blocked my money in the account and I can not get them widrawall
Better is to use Skrill or Pioneer!

I vote for Payoneer! Fast, easy and convenient way to get paid. Customer support is great compare to Paypal.

I've been using PayPal and have never had a problem.

PayPal wins hands down. Money bookers or Skrill is a chore to use, clunky interface and assistance via feedback forms is redundant.
