No doubt, PayPal is a popular payment processor. People use PayPal to pay for the goods they bought on EBay. Some online businesses use PayPal to accept payments from their customers. Although, PayPal is one of the easiest payment processor to use, one has to be careful as to avoid any unpleasant situation. Here are a list of problems one may encounter with PayPal and how to avoid them. Perhaps, you are a PayPal member yourself.
1. Your real-life bank account suddenly has an overdraft after you made a payment with PayPal. To avoid this, never rely on the message on your PayPal account that says that it will use your backup funding source in case there is no enough funds in your primary source. Instead, make sure you have enough funds in your bank account or whatever which is used as your primary source before making any payments. Another way is to avoid the problem is to make sure your PayPal account stays at a balance you feel comfortable with and you are confident will help you with your payments or buying habits. Also, track your transactions with PayPal every day to see if there is any unauthorized ones.
However, If your product is not in demand at all or you are selling something that is considered inferior, there is no way you really can expect anyone to pay you no matter what payment processor you are using.
