I recently started the business of dropshipping and I met with these horror stories about paypal. We have many detractors and less on favor.
Regardless of these details, there is another thing that I think are overlooked and that only one person I have read that mention it. There are on the network, several payment gateways that are not deposited the money from sales made until the customer has received his isue, the way he wanted. Those who use the dropshipping this detail does not make us the least funny. Maybe, just maybe, if I have an "extra" way to finance purchase of my client and send him, cool for me, otherwise ....
An example of this behavior is 2checkout.com. I'm not going to dictate their policies, but they put us in a bind. Clickbank only deals in digital items. Does us no good. Moneybookers can ask each x time a "security deposit" to cover any financial eventuality against you. -I read about the enormous political-and there are more services that just do not convince me.
Anyone have a better idea or know of a less restrictive service to those who like me use dropshipping?
My best possible tip, be proactive with PayPal. Quite some time ago I got a little serious with one of my eBay accounts and was starting to push a lot of cash through PayPal from that account. I was expecting to have issues as for the past few years previously it had only been serving as a part time account and had been generating a low volume of cash, so I knew some alarm bells may well start to ring at PayPal.
I made a point to contact them directly to discuss what I had planned to do with this particular account and gave them a brief cash flow break down as to what I was anticipating. I found them extremely helpful, was given someone to deal with me specifically and after confirming a few minor details I was assured there would be no dramas, and there never were.
