Living Room / Everyone happy with PayPal?
« on: March 28, 2005, 02:12 PM »

Occasionally I get email from someone who is wary about using PayPal.

I've had a PayPal account for over 4 years, using it mostly as a a way to pay for things rather than receive money, and I have to say that I have never had a single bad experience, and overall my experience has been fantastic.

So far my experience in terms of using it to receive donations has been equally pleasent, and PayPal charges a much lower surcharge than other credit card / shareware processing services, and they are well set up for accepting user-chosen donation amounts.

But I am aware of all the sites on the web complaining about PayPal - all of them seem to be from seller's who have had their accounts closed by PayPal and had some of their money confiscated without warning.  I can certainly understand why this would be infuriating, especially if PayPal is not forthcoming about their reasons behind it..

I've also had at least one person tell me they were having trouble getting PayPal to accept their donation.

I'd be very interested in hearing other people's experiences with PayPal, both bad and good, and whether you think I should set up an alternative donation method (and if so, any recommendations?)

fixed version 1.05.10 updated.
i also took the opportunity to remove the "Super Happy.." part of the installer name, which i should have done earlier; this change makes it seem like a different program to the installer, so if you want to avoid having an extra entry in your "installed programs list", you should uninstall prior version before installing this one - if you don't its not a big deal.

yes it should say launch history - ill fix that now.
asking to delete or add should bring up a messagebox saying not allowed to do that..
if it's hanging on your machine, i know whats happening and i will fix (for some reason something is causing the options dialog to hide the messsagebox telling you you cant add/delete), which means you cant press the buttton to click "ok" which is in effect hanging the program.  thanks for report, should be new fixed version up in the next couple of hours.
