Is Paymate actually any better though?
I got enlisted with a new account anyway. How does Paymate stack up to what's been going on from before?
And yeah Jimmy has it completely correct. He got shafted when $1000 was in that account. My father in fact got shafted twice when he had $1400 in the account, after the juicer/coffee maker all got sold.
He was incensed but I didn't dare tell him the obvious truth, that this would happen and he should have sold it through craigslist.
Now like he spoke there a merchant account is normally pretty infallible, and credit cards are the fastest way to do any *ANY* type of business - so not having one is not the way to play.
Amazon payments is a merchant account & there isn't some crazy surcharge on every transaction, ala Paypal. They're a very good one. Another major one is Google Checkout since its so common globally. Another big one is 1st data solutions, wish I could use that with eBay for now on. Boy would that save alot of time!
Paypal is just rotten. When the eBay team decided that's the main pay processor we'll use maybe they weren't even thinking, because in either case its infuriated the community and that is probably how their competition Bonanzle etc is really wiping the floor with them.
